Sarah Palin: Smarter than a Fifth Grader?

Palin: GOP ticket was too ‘status quo’

“Some of the goofy things, like who was Trig's mom. Well, I'm Trig's mom, and do you want to see my medical records to prove that? And banning books. That was a ridiculous thing also that could have so easily been corrected just by a reporter taking an extra step and not basing a report on gossip or speculation,” Palin said.

“Just looking into the record. It was reported that I tried to ban Harry Potter when it hadn't even been written when I was the mayor. So, gosh, we have so many examples, I mean every day, especially the first few weeks, every day something that was thrown out there.”


Sarah Palin served two terms (1996–2002) as mayor of Wasilla, Alaska. That makes her the mayor when the first book in the Harry Potter series was published in June of 1997.

Is she lying or is she merely ignorant? Either way, Sarah Palin is the gift that keeps on giving.
