Here’s the story:

Sarah Palin claimed today that Jesus Christ celebrated Easter during his time on Earth.

In an interview with Fox and Friends this morning, the former Alaska governor promoted her new book about the left’s “war on Christmas” and argued that all Christian holidays should return to the traditional versions practiced by Jesus.

“It makes me so gosh darn angry,” Palin explained. “The liberal left in this country has targeted Christian holidays and is trying to secularize them right out of existence.

“When Jesus celebrated Easter with his disciples there were no Easter bunnies or egg hunts. There were no Easter sales at department stores or parades in the street. Easter was a special time of prayer and Christian activism.

“Jesus would gather all the townspeople around and would listen to their stories about the meaning of Easter in their lives. Then he would teach them how to love one another, how to protest Roman abortion clinics and how to properly convert homosexuals.

“You can’t even do things like that these days without getting called out by some wacko left-wing human rights group. Christians had more freedom under Roman rule than we do now in our own country! We need to return Easter back to the way it was when Jesus was alive.”

Now, this story is from The Daily Currant, a Brit satire site that is even drier than the Onion. But it’s still a satire site.

Apparently, however, Piers Morgan doesn’t know this.

Oh, he says now he knew:

For someone to not realize that's satire they'd have to be deeply stupid, mentally ill or both. Since it's Palin-haters we're talking about I'm going to say "both".

Governor Palin was snickered at when she spoke of "...partying like it's 1773..." She was referring, correctly and in context, to the Boston Tea Party. Her detractors were so nuanced, so subtle, that they assumed she was referring to the year of independence because she was too dull to use any other date.
Governor Palin, like Presidents Bush and Bush, is an intelligent and highly informed person. People who tried to work GW Bush as if he were stupid found out otherwise, sometimes jarringly. Same for Governor Palin.

I particularly enjoyed when her teleprompter went haywire during her acceptance speech, and she just keep going because she knew the speech. I'm sure it was an accident, no one would ever set her up to embarrass herself.
