Palin Turns my Fake Quote into a Real Quote

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.
