This is great, Nick! Exactly how I feel. I loved this clip and think I posted it on Facebook. Matthews has a great line: "America is the book she didn't read!" I don't recall if they showed it in this clip, but she also talks about the "founding mothers." I was just howling with laughter!


I would disagree a tiny bit, in that there was some diversity (as much as might be allowed or expected at the time) regarding how they wanted the country to be shaped and formed, and what sort of government we should have. The puritan roots of Adams vs. the diest Jefferson, the strong central government vs. states rights, etc. Not diversity as we understand them today, but big for the time.

I haven't watched the video yet, and I would have lunch civilly with Ann Coulter before I would agree with Palin (I was going to say make out with, but I would NEVER go that far with Saten), so I may be missing your point. If the point was that Palin is an idiot that even my Republican Alaskan friends shake their heads at, I agree.


The fact that Sarah Palin keeps opening her mouth in spite of how often she ends up making a fool out of herself is evidence of what an idiot she is.

These interviews with her are simultaneously horrifying & hilarious.


Total dunderhead moron.

Ah, love the Brit in you, Brit!


p.s. Nailed it.
