This is priceless! From her Facebook page, quoted in its entirety:

A Thanksgiving Message to All 57 States

by Sarah Palin on Thursday, November 25, 2010 at 5:46pm
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 .

Obviously, I would have been even more impressed if the media showed some consistency on this issue. Unfortunately, it seems they couldn’t resist the temptation to turn a simple one word slip-of-the-tongue of mine into a major political headline. The one word slip occurred yesterday during one of my seven back-to-back interviews wherein I was privileged to speak to the American public about the important, world-changing issues before us.

If the media had bothered to actually listen to all of my remarks on Glenn Beck’s radio show , they would have noticed that I refer to South Korea as our ally throughout, that I corrected myself seconds after my slip-of-the-tongue, and that I made it abundantly clear that pressure should be put on China to restrict energy exports to the North Korean regime. The media could even have done due diligence and checked my previous statements on the subject, which have always been consistent, and in fact even ahead of the curve . But why let the facts get in the way of a good story? (And for that matter, why not just make up stories out of thin air – like the totally false hard news story which has run for three days now reporting that I lobbied the producers of “Dancing with the Stars” to cast a former Senate candidate on their show. That lie is further clear proof that the media completely makes things up without doing even rudimentary fact-checking.)

“Hope springs eternal” as the poet says. Let’s hope that perhaps, just maybe, they might get it right next time. When we the people are effective in holding America’s free press accountable for responsible and truthful reporting, then we shall all have even more to be thankful for!

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

Oh my! OK, put down the knife, Sarah, and rinse the offal off your boots… this carcass is neatly field dressed. 🙂

Very well done! I first heard about this “gaffe” on Shepard Smith’s “Studio B” about two hours after it was made. He commented that, if it was true, it was “pretty bad.” No, it would have been pathetic; as was reporting on it without the slightest effort to find out if it was true, Shep! Undoubtedly, George Soros’ Media Matters organization (who have employees assigned to listen real-time to every word on Glenn Beck’s programs) started it and, as usual, their minions in the press jumped on it. I immediately went and listened to the interview with Beck twice and it was so obviously a slip of the tongue that nobody could honestly conclude otherwise.

There is no excuse for anyone in the media (including Shepard Smith) not to have done the same thing before gleefully running a story on it. These partisan “reporters” are incorrigible. They wonder why they are losing their readers/audience. The ability for someone like Palin to bypass their publications and publish gems like this on social media sites will make these dishonest spinmeisters increasingly irrelevant.

The more I see of Palin, the more I like her. This clever lady has pluck in spades and those who underestimate her mind are fooling themselves. She doesn’t need a teleprompter to deliver an inspirational speech. Her ability to speak extemporaneously puts the Obamessiah to shame. I’d pay good money to watch a debate between them. You go girl! ◄Dave►
