“ In the article on Paul Revere, someone has added false information in an effort to support Sarah Palin’s FALSE claims about Paul Revere… This must be removed as it is a LIE designed to mislead. Dj”

Fined Dining. Last night, Sarah Palin and Donald Trump dined at Famiglia Pizza in Times Square, because apparently the wait at Sbarro’s up the street was too long. Above is the latest inspection information for the fine dining establishment—a C. While the whole letter grade process might be sort of bogus, it still takes a lot to get a C. But are live roaches (as seen in the restaurant’s September inspection) the norm in Real America?
The House That “You Betcha” Built. Here’s a photo of the $1.695 million home reportedly purchased by Sarah Palin and her family in Arizona. No word on when Joe McGinniss is buying the ranch next door, but I suspect that will happen shortly. Click through for more pics.
“ I think it’s just fun to say things about her. She opens herself up to be a target. There’s something so self-assured about her. Everybody needs to have some self-doubt and acknowledgment that they don’t know what they’re doing and that life is more complicated than they understand. My objection to her is not political. It’s just aesthetic. It’s just humane. She’s perfectly evil to me, so I like making fun of her in ways that have nothing to do with who she really is.”
That’s legendary comedian Louis CK talking about Sarah Palin, and the thing about Palin is that you CANNOT reference her in nonpolitical terms. At this point, the former Alaska governor is a purely political entity, so much so that if you said “Sarah Palin likes applesauce,” people would immediately attach 90 different political meanings to it.
“ I want to help clean up the state that is so sorry today of journalism. And I have a communications degree. I studied journalism, who, what, where, when, and why of reporting. I will speak to reporters who still understand that cornerstone of our democracy, that expectation that the public has for truth to be reported. And then we get to decide our own opinion based on the facts reported to us.”
Proof: This embedded video of Palin as newscaster in which she talks about Alaskan Iditarod-type races. Actual title of the segment (at the 14-second mark): “LOTS OF DOGS.”
A California store is having a little fun with Palin’s new book:
If you buy a copy of “Going Rogue: An American Life” at Bookshop Santa Cruz you will get a small bag of “Sarah Palin’s Just Plain Nutz” free of charge. The nut of choice for this bag is walnuts, if that matters.
“ Oprah asked Palin directly whether she wanted to get into the talk show business. Palin demurred and, according to audience members interviewed outside the studio, suggested she was considering the move. Palin did not give a direct yes or no answer.”
