They are calling this a "gaffe"

But it's just plain old ignorance:

Gov. Sarah Palin made her first potentially major gaffe during her time on the national scene while discussing the developments of the perilous housing market this past weekend.

Speaking before voters in Colorado Springs, the Republican vice presidential nominee claimed that lending giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac had "gotten too big and too expensive to the taxpayers." The companies,
as McClatchy reported, "aren't taxpayer funded but operate as private companies. The takeover may result in a taxpayer bailout during reorganization."

The woman quite simply doesn't know what she's talking about.

And we want her a 72 year old heartbeat away from the presidency? What's wrong with this country? Some kind of collective death wish?


  1. You said something profound here: "A 72 year old heartbeat away from the Presidency." We need to spread that phrase FAR AND WIDE!

    Did you see Deepak's analysis "Obama and the Palin Effect"? Very Good indeed.

  2. Yes, timbrewolf1, I got that from our mutual friend. It explains a lot, actually. It helps me make sense of what is happening.

    I've been publicly protesting,vigiling,witnessing? in Tulsa OK since 2004 I've not seen the kind of vehement violent catcalling this weekend since beginning!
    I'd say Deepak has hit the issue spot on!
