The further to the left or the right you move, the more your lens on life distorts.

The ongoing meme of the Obama campaign and its supporters is that Sarah Palin is a rube, completely inexperienced, and no match for Joe Biden on any front. How do you think they and the MSM would react if she said this in response to a question about the financial crisis:
"When the stock market crashed, Franklin Roosevelt got on the television and didn't just talk about the princes of greed. He said, 'Look, here's what happened.'"

The MSM (not to mention Obama’s people) would smile knowingly and suggest that Palin doesn’t know anything about technology or political history.

I can see it now …

Keith Oberman of MSNBC would exclaim, “Virtually no one in the United States owned a TV (they we experimental devices relegated to research labs at that time). Palin is an idiot!”

Wolf Blitzer of CNN would comment in a more measured manner. “It’s apparent," he might say, "that Sarah Palin has her facts wrong. FDR wasn’t the President at that time. It was Herbert Hoover.”

There’s only one problem. Palin never said it. Joe Biden did. To Katie Couric in an interview on CBS News.

Didn’t hear about it? Boy, that’s surprising.
