Palin Turns my Fake Quote into a Real Quote

Validating My Genius

Validating My Genius

A few days ago, I wrote a satirical post entitled “In Debate, Palin confirms McCain’s vocabulary.”  In this satire, I made fun of Palin saying that “John McCain knows what evil is” which is a direct quote from the vice-presidential debate.  In it, I said that she commented that John McCain knows what evil is because he owns a dictionary, as well as other reference books like a thesaurus.

In a story on Yahoo today from the Associated Press entitled “Palin defends terroist comment against Obama,” writer Jim Kuhnhenn quoted Mrs. Palin’s response to some of her criticism:

People say that I speak too simply, or don’t have quite the — I don’t have my thesaurus in my back pocket all along through my speeches,” she told donors in Englewood, Col. “Well, I don’t have time for that.”

I don’t know what to say.  Either my satire was too close for comfort, or Governor Palin reads my blog.  Either way I’m flattered, and now a bit nervous about doing a bit about her thinking a thesaurus is a type of dinosaur.

    Lol, I think Joes a fan! 😛

    But yeah, she said she doesn’t carry around a thesaurus… which is a completely different thing, so leave the poor woman alone!!
    The upside to Palin getting in to office would be that John Steward and Colbert have enough easy fodder to see them through another few years… what are they gonna do if Obama wins and the crowd doesn’t like them dissing him!? Ok, I’m gonna leave before I sound like Bill O’reilly and bang on about the ‘liberal media’ 😉

    Good work tho!
