Paul Revere’s ride

by thoughtfulconservative

I thought this quote was great. NPR asked a professor Robert Allison from Suffolk University in Boston about Sarah Palin’s now famous answer. Here’s what he said at the end:

Sarah Palin is a lightning rod. I just was thinking about how many times, you know, I’ve spoken about Paul Revere. I’ve organized events about the American Revolution. No one ever pays any attention.

AL Simpson takes on his critics (via @drudge_report)

by thoughtfulconservative

Wonder if Simpson will be criticized as widely as @SarahPalinUSA was yesterday…

The New York Times “error”

by thoughtfulconservative

Ya gotta love it. You’ve about this, right? The NY Times prints a letter from the mayor of Paris. Only it’s not the mayor; the Gray Lady was punk*d.

Ann Althouse connects it with another famous punking,

Hey, remember that time Sarah Palin thought she was talking on the phone with Nicolas Sarkozy? The NYT presented that mistake as “one of the last straws” that convinced McCain advisors that Palin didn’t have what it takes.

I can now say that the NY Times doesn’t have what it takes.
