You just can’t make this stuff up, which is why the real Sarah Palin is even nuttier than Tina Fey’s fake Palin.
With Palin failing history so completely, is it any wonder that everyone keeps comparing her and Michele Bachmann?
UPDATE: For all our readers who can’t acknowledge any mistakes by Sarah Palin even when her exact words are ridiculous and clearly inaccurate, here’s a reenactment from Steven Colbert that highlights the absurdity of what Palin said.
The few historians defending her had to alter what she actually said to come up with a plausible explanation. Normal people would just admit that they misspoke on some of the details, but Sarah Palin isn’t normal. She has to stand her ground on EVERYTHING, no matter how stupid or ridiculous she sounds. Her supporters are no different. They jumped on Wikipedia and tried to change the Paul Revere page to reflect Palin’s absurd account.
This just reflects how polarized we’ve become. Both sides make mistakes, and both sides have buffoons like Sarah Palin and blowhards like Micheal Moore. Just ask yourself one question – are you constantly defending the buffoons on your own side? If so you’ve lost all perspective, along with your sense of humor about the absurdity of politics.
