Sarah Palin gives thanks for YouTube

The other day Sarah Palin got North and South Korea mixed up, mere seconds after getting it right. Apparently this is a big deal, because lots of people who don’t like her are yelling about it.

She has taken to Facebook to respond:

A Thanksgiving Message to All 57 States

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…

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.

And here are the clips she linked to:



Fortunately for President Obama and all the other smart fellers, she stopped at 10.

Some on the left can’t control their seething hatred of Palin, and she keeps turning it right around on them. More people will see Obama’s gaffes on her Facebook page than if they were shown over and over and over on the news. And now the usual suspects can’t report on her rebuttal without admitting that their hero is capable of error as well. Let’s hope our moral, ethical, and intellectual superiors never learn.

P.S. It’s like kicking puppies, except even funner.

P.P.S. Another good one:
