Fox News Throws Sarah Under The Bus

But guys, what about Palin 2012? Isn't that still on the table?

Apparently, Fox News sat on a story that concluded what we all knew: Sarah Palin is not smarter than a 5th grader. Among the things she didn't know - what countries were part of NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement) or that Africa was a continent, not a country.

It looks like the McCain campaign or the players in the campaign are hoping character assassination will work on Palin as well as it failed on Obama. Not that I believe these stories aren't true - on the contrary, I think this is only a glimpse into the real, stupid Sarah Palin. And here I was thinking I would never have to hear her name on a daily basis again. I have a feeling we'll be hearing about her in the next few weeks, with one embarrassing anecdote after another. Sort of like the daily coverage of the death of Anna Nicole Smith... remember how long that lasted?

And on another note, do you think Fox "Fair and Balanced" News would have kept this story off the record for a month if it were, oh I don't know, Barack Obama who didn't know that the US, Canada and Mexico were part of NAFTA? Hmmm...
