Coulter on Palin

Ann Coulter has a good column this week about Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and the unsuccessful GOP bid for the White House.

You can read it here.

But, here's a little piece that I found interesting:
True, Palin made some embarrassing gaffes.

She complained that we didn’t have enough “Arabic translators” in Afghanistan -- not realizing the natives don’t speak Arabic in Afghanistan, but rather a variety of regional dialects, the most common of which is Pashtun.

Speaking to military veterans one time, Palin said, “Our nation honors its unbroken line of fallen heroes -- and I see many of them in the audience here today.”

She bragged about passing a law regulating the nuclear industry that it turned out never became a law at all.

Some days Palin said Venezuela's dictator Hugo Chavez should suffer "regional isolation" -- but then on others she’d say she supported the president’s meeting with Chavez.

She told one audience about recent tornados in Kansas that had killed 10,000 people. In fact, a dozen people were killed in the tornados.

She referred to the “57 states” that make up the U.S.

Speaking of her eldest daughter’s pregnancy, she said Bristol was being “punished” with a baby.

As you probably know -- or guessed by now -- none of these gaffes were uttered by Palin. They are all Obama gaffes. Luckily, he made them to a star-struck press that managed not to ask him a difficult question for two years.
Interesting, ain't it? Yet, Palin's been called every variation of "stupid" that liberals could think of, just like they did to Bush over his Yale grades ... never mentioning that their pick, John Kerry, did even worse in school.

Obama won. McCain and Palin lost. There are bigger fish to fry right now than beating that "liberal" media to death.

I know who won and who lost. That doesn't negate what a horrible job mass media does when it comes to anything political. The whole thing had way too much hype.
