Is there a place in hell for idiots and liars?

Pictured: A real Maverick. Will it too spin its wheels in a desperate attempt to speed away from all that bad newsflow on the economy?

Sarah's latest demonstration that she has nothing but contempt for women, whom she sees as stupid.

It happened at that rally in California, folks. Sarah misquoted Clinton appointee Madeleine Albright in an attempt to pander to women voters. Will someone please tell her that (a) we may be gals, but we know how to read and fact check and (b) anyone smart enough to be intrigued by something Madeleine Albright might have said is also smart enough to understand Albright's explanation of how she was misquoted. See it all for yourself:

I have a prediction: Tina Fey is going to be very busy in the next four weeks. And for that, I am almost grateful to Sarah Palin.

Update: A Real Maverick Speaks Out.

Here's what one of Samuel Maverick's descendents had to say about John McCain's use of the word maverick to describe himself. It's from an op-ed piece in the NY Times by John Schwartz that you can read here:

Considering the family’s long history of association with liberalism and progressive ideals, it should come as no surprise that Ms. Maverick insists that John McCain, who has voted so often with his party, “is in no way a maverick, in uppercase or lowercase.”

“It’s just incredible — the nerve! — to suggest that he’s not part of that Republican herd. Every time we hear it, all my children and I and all my family shrink a little and say, ‘Oh, my God, he said it again.’ ”

“He’s a Republican,” she said. “He’s branded.”
