The Sarah and Todd Palin “divorce” hoax story is still sitting at the top of Memeorandum. I am betting that there a whole lot of unhappy citizens living in LiberalLand today. As Jimmie at The Sundries Shack puts it:
Sorry, my left-wing friends, but today isn’t Christmas, the Palin’s aren’t getting a divorce, and you can’t have a pony. I know that your favorite blogs are running with the unsubstantiated rumor that the Palins are splitsville like Darryl Grant with an errant Gary Hogeboom pass in the 1982 NFC Championship Game, but it’s not victory they’re running toward, just another credibility-demolishing embarassment.
This is a case of wanting something so badly that people tripped over their own asses to put out a story without any vetting or even common sense. Aside from the fact that anyone who would cheer a couple’s divorce is a morally challenged ass wipe, what is with these people? Had they tired of picking on a down’s syndrome child and needed something, anything to smack Sarah Palin around with? Give maturity a chance, folks.
I’ll leave this in better hands than mine.
