One of the tenents that I have always believed is that, despite the pundits and cartoonists, our leaders are typically very intelligent. I may not always agree with thier methods or their end goals, but I always figured them to be very intelligent. They'd have to be, right?
Then we get a beauty queen. Until recently, I assumed it was an act. Nope. Anyone who ever puts this lady in charge of more than a Dairy Queen needs to lose their voting rights...at least.
What was worse, you know, outside of the obvious slanting of history in order to make a current political point about as subtle as a nuclear strike, was the blatant and obscene ignorance and obstinance to stick to the failed rendition of historical facts when interviewed on ....wait for it....Fox news (like you wouldn't have guessed). Even worse was her staffers going on to attempt a change to Wikipedia's Paul Revere page so to reflect Palin's assertion of history.
Either cry or laugh, folks. These are our leaders.....
