Getting Shit

I "Like" Sarah Palin on Facebook, and just now went to her page to read her latest:

"My fellow Americans in all 57 states, the time has changed for come. With our country founded more than 20 centuries ago, we have much to celebrate – from the FBI’s 100 days to the reforms that bring greater inefficiencies to our health care system. We know that countries like Europe are willing to stand with us in our fight to halt the rise of privacy, and Israel is a strong friend of Israel’s. And let’s face it, everybody knows that it makes no sense that you send a kid to the emergency room for a treatable illness like asthma and they end up taking up a hospital bed. It costs, when, if you, they just gave, you gave them treatment early, and they got some treatment, and ah, a breathalyzer, or an inhalator. I mean, not a breathalyzer, ah, I don’t know what the term is in Austrian for that…"

I was shocked! I knew I didn't always agree with her intellectually, but this time it seemed as if she'd gone absolutely off her rocker! (Or else that her Facebook page had been hacked.) As it turned out, the above quotes are all from BARACK OBAMA. Not in one massive paragraph like that, but they're a series of quotes all by Obama, with links (that I clicked to check) to prove that he said them. After I got over my initial shock at the above on the Palin page, I read on:

"Of course, the paragraph above is based on a series of misstatements and verbal gaffes made by Barack Obama (I didn’t have enough time to do one for Joe Biden). YouTube links are provided just in case you doubt the accuracy of these all too human slips-of-the-tongue. If you can’t remember hearing about them, that’s because for the most part the media didn’t consider them newsworthy. I have no complaint about that. Everybody makes the occasional verbal gaffe – even news anchors."

She has a great point. Sarah Palin has been given nothing but shit by every news outlet sans Fox for every slip of the tongue. While Barack Obama, every bit as inexperienced as she from the onset, has been given nothing but the royal treatment, DESPITE his gaffes.
