Another Bizarre Lie From Sarah Palin

Speaking to an quivering teabagger audience in Montgomery, Alabama, Sarah Palin said this:

“I tell Bristol, I am texting her and say ‘Bristol’…and I wasn’t kidding, I thought that this was a practical thing to do…’How about if Todd and I we load up all the kids in our motorhome and drive down, park on Rodeo Drive and we come to see you.’ And I honestly didn’t think that it was an unusual thing to suggest, that’s what you do, a road trip. (…) But anyway, that’s what we did, though, we parked a little bit further away from Rodeo Drive, and we got to watch Bristol.”

Palingates did some fact-checking, noting that the 3375-mile drive from Wasilla to Los Angeles would take forever. And unless the Palin motorhome has a jet engine, there’s no way she could have been in Los Angeles a mere two days after being photographed at her home in Alaska. Aaaand there’s the pesky little fact of being seen on an Alaska Airlines flight to from Portland to Los Angeles on the day before the show. Oops!

Palingates makes the obvious conclusion: “The ‘road trip’ only existed in Sarah Palin’s crazy mind – she shamelessly used this made-up story to impress her audience in Montgomery.”
