One of Sarah Palin’s many talents is talking about things that aren’t true while pretending they are. Take the recent speech in Wisconsin in which Palin wondered about the phrase “In God We Trust” being moved to the edge of new coins. “Who calls a shot like that?” she asked. “Who makes a decision like that? It’s a disturbing trend.”
Palin was clearly implying that this “change” was the doing of the new Democratic White House. She was wrong. Palin confusing fiction for fact is not exactly a watershed event. But Fox News calling her out for it is. Earlier tonight Fox News anchor Bret Baier noted that a Republican Congress and a Republican president signed off on the coin’s redesign. Oops! If there was anyone in Palin’s camp responsible for accuracy, they’d be in big trouble. Of course, there is no such person. So all is well.
