Sarah Palin was baited on the soporific birther issue today. From the WaPo’s PostPartisan blog:
“Do you question his faith and citizenship?” Palin was asked today during an onstage interview hosted by the Long Island Association. Her answer was brief and to the point.
“I don’t, and those are distractions,” she said to some applause. “What we’re concerned about is the economy. And we’re concerned about the policies coming out of his administration and what he believes in terms of big government or private sector. So, no, the faith, the birth certificate, others can engage in that kind of conversation. It’s distracting. It gets annoying and let’s just stick with what really matters.”
Meanwhile, the WaPo’s Capehart couldn’t resist a snide comment – another example of how liberals are the new squares. (hat tip: Brutally Honest)
