When asked by Katie Couric which news publications she read, Sarah Palin hemmed and hawed and finally said she read "all of them," but wasn't able to be specific.
Just like Bush.
She evidently does read Starbucks coffee cups, though. Maybe. We're not sure. It could be that her handlers introduced her to the now infamous Starbucks coffee cup which contains a quote by former Secretary of State, Madeline Albright.
Palin, however, imagining herself to be in the same class as Albright and other bright women, referred to this quote at a rally where her beloved fans screamed high-school-like, in adoration. She claimed to have personally seen the quote on her cup of Starbucks mocha:
"Now she said it, I didn't," said Palin of Albright. "She said, 'There's a place in hell reserved for women who don't support other women.'"
Well, maybe Palin didn't really see the quote. Maybe it was her handlers who pointed it out to her. Because Sarah failed to get it right. Again.
The quote actually reads: "There's a place in hell reserved for women who don't help other women."
Not only so, but Palin knew not the context and thus came off looking like the insufferable fool she is.
Madeline Albright herself set Palin straight. Albright told the Huffington Post:
"Though I am flattered that Gov. Palin has chosen to cite me as a source of wisdom, what I said had nothing to do with politics.
"This is yet another example of McCain and Palin distorting the truth, and all the more reason to remember that this campaign is not about gender, it is about which candidate has an agenda that will improve the lives of all Americans, including women.
"The truth is, if you care about the status of women in our society and in our troubled economy, the best choice by far is Obama-Biden."

2) This story, as reported by Thomas M. DeFrank, the Daily News Washington Bureau Chief, failed to include the last sentence, by far the most important sentence in Albright's response. Why would that be? Is this another example of how the media is biased in Obama's favor? Or could it be the MSM, owned mostly by huge corporate conglomerates, continues to favor Mr. McCain?
3) The MSM's corporate owners will receive a humungous, multi-billion dollar tax break under the McCain tax proposal.
