Sarah Palin Wrote Down Some of Her Lies So You Could Pick Them Apart


Is everybody loving the Associated Press’ fact-checking of Sarah Palin’s Going Rogue? Our favorite bullet point comes at the very end:

PALIN: “Was it ambition? I didn’t think so. Ambition drives; purpose beckons.” Throughout the book, Palin cites altruistic reasons for running for office, and for leaving early as Alaska governor.

THE FACTS: Few politicians own up to wanting high office for the power and prestige of it, and in this respect, Palin fits the conventional mold. But “Going Rogue” has all the characteristics of a pre-campaign manifesto, the requisite autobiography of the future candidate.
