CNN indulged a classic left media tactic by misleading with a headline in a recent piece on former Governor Sarah Palin. The headline, if read by itself, seems to be saying that Sarah Palin delivered a “gaffe-filled message,” when the truth is that her message talked about gaffes, but wasn’t “filled” with them per se....
In a flat world there is an explanation to everything.

"If all you did was read that headline, you'd think she made a fool of herself with all sorts of incorrect statements in it."
i dont have to read the headline or anything else to know that palin makes a fool of herself almost every time she opens that mouth, (which, you may have noticed in most of her pictures, it's gaping open)
i rest my case.
Well... isn't that Palin's fault for being so gaffe ridden that we assume she gaffed instead of talking about gaffing?
If she didn't seem so prone to it, perhaps we all would assume she was speaking of gaffing first and that she gaffed as a secondary notion.
Your ad hominem connotes your sciolism. Now that is some funny commentary.
Palin bashing? What an appalling and shocking idea. Why would anyone ver want to do that to America's greatest statesperson since George W. Bush?
If, as it seems, we are in the process of becoming a totalitarian society in which the state apparatus is all-powerful, the ethics most important for the survival of the true, free, human individual would be: cheat, lie, evade, fake it, be elsewhere, forge documents, build improved electronic gadgets in your garage that’ll outwit the gadgets used by the authorities.
I agree it is a misleading title. But, so is this thread. It was a political BLOG on the CNN site that made the headline. An opinion piece.
Palin got a raw deal on the 'north korea' gaffe. It is stupid to pick on her for that, and then ignore the other things she says. (I'm no Palin fan at all, but I can't stand this type of politics).
The real unfortunate thing is that the same people who blast Obama for being a political 'rock star' are now embracing Palin for being a 'Reality star'. Apparently, regardless of political lines, we Americans really want CELEBRITIES, not leaders.
Sometimes, I think we get what we deserve.
Stop nitpicking the every move of politicians. Let's start talking about the issues they bring. I don't want to know about their private lives unless they are breaking the law.
