The Palin Hoax, even I knew this was probably false... [Nov. 13th, 2008|07:29 am]

Looks like Palin really did know that Africa was a continent and not a country.

I figured it was probably false, just because it makes the news doesn't make it true. Now we know they got the story off the internet. Yeah, that's the most reliable source.

Um, not so much. The "blogger" who claimed to be the source of the story was revealed to be a hoax. The reporter who broke the original story, Carl Cameron, has not retracted it.

I would like to be skeptical, I have heard enough bizarre statements made by Palin that I cannot dismiss this one out of hand. Either way, bullet dodged.

Ok, got me. I didn't read it well.

I agree we dodged a bullet, but think many rumors are false or exaggerated. I hope, for her sake.
