A Whiter Shade of Palin

Posted By on Fri, Oct 3, 2008 at 5:03 PM

On CNN this morning, a talk radio host in St. Louis declared Sarah Palin’s performance in the VP debate a success, citing her use of “complete sentences.” (Up next on AC360: McCain surges ahead on strength of subject/verb agreement!) To anyone else disappointed by Palin’s, um,  non-face-plant last night, take heart in knowing that the Katie Couric clips just won’t die. At around the one-and-a-half minute mark of this latest chestnut, after Joe Biden says Dick Cheney’s shredding of the Constitution has been more harmful “than any other single elected official in my memory,” Palin deems Icky Dick's biggest failing to be accidentally shooting Harry Whittington on a hunting trip in 2006. Really? Not advocating torture in worldwide rendition camps? Not selling Americans on WMDs in order to sell Iraq to Halliburton? Not inflating his own legislative influence through the dissolution of checks and balances? Nope: “Worst thing, I guess, that woulda been the duck hunting accident (Ed. note: it was quail), where, you know, that was, that was an accident. And that was made into a caricature of him, and that was kind of unfortunate." Lodging buckshot in your buddy is a big no-no in Wasilla, dontcha know.
