Sarah's East Coast Iditarod

AS WE GLANCED at the latest TV report of Sarah Palin's Lower 48 version of the Iditarod up the East Coast, it became clear from the frenzy that we were witnessing the Palin First Law of Centripetal Force. That is,
A falling body decelerates relative to the mass of media energy affecting it.
Folks, not since reporter Nellie Bly infiltrated an asylum for a story and followed up by circling the globe in 80 days have we seen such a determined self-absorbed human spectacle. Donald Trump, with whom she met along the way for a collectible photo-op, could not match it once his birther plot died. The media could not resist Sarah's latest stunt. It's a given factor that she doesn't overlook these days. Will her gravitational pull ever be exhausted? Not until after she topples over Niagara Falls in a barrel?

Okay, here's the Beauty Queen's response to a question about Paul Revere from the "lamestream media" when she appeared at a stop at Boston's Old North Church:

"He who warned, uh, the British that they weren't going to be taking away our arms, uh, by ringing those bells and making sure as he's riding his horse through town to send those warning shots and bells that we were going to be secure and we were going to be free and we were going to be armed."

That's a direct quote, folks.

Stay tuned.

I told you to stay tuned. Part 2:

"I didn't mess up about Paul Revere" the Beauty Queen replied to Chris Wallace when he pointed out her gaffe on her own beloved FoxNews, "Part of his ride was to warn the British that were already there. That, hey, you're not going to succeed. You're not going to take American arms. You're not going to beat our own well-armed persons, individual, private militia that we have. He did warn the British." She later stated, "I know my American history."

According to Joel J. Miller, author of "The Revolutonary Paul Revere", "He was riding off as quickly and quietly as possible. Paul Revere did not want the Redcoats to know of his mission at all."

There's not much I can add to that.

Stay tuned, kids. I'm betting there's more to come.

She's like a hog on ice. Is it funnier to watch her slip and fall, or watching her slip-sliding all over the place to get back on her feet?
