Sarah Palin’s latest attempt at keeping her name in the news is her latest conspiracy theory on the “disturbing” redesign of U.S. coins while implying the current administration had something to do with the changes made to the coins. It’s either one more reminder that this simpleton just doesn’t like to do her homework or research no matter the subject or a reminder that Sarah Palin is most time less than honest and doesn’t care.
Last Friday, Palin traveled to Milwaukee, WI to speak at a Wisconsin Right to Life fundraising banquet. Attendees that paid $30 a ticket to hear her speak were barred from bringing cell phones, cameras, laptops, but that didn’t stop us from finding out just what Palin rolled out the latest: an anti-Christian conspiracy in the redesign of U.S. coins. Palin waded into the subject by remarking that there had been a lot of “change” of late — for example, the redesign of U.S. currency which moved the once-centered text “In God We Trust” to the edge of coins.
“Who calls a shot like that?” Palin demanded on Friday. “Who makes a decision like that?”
Fox News anchor Bret Baier answered the question for Sarah since she seems to have trouble finding facts on her own.
President Bush, that’s who, Smug Sarah!
Baier quoting the reporter from Politico who paid the $30 to attend to the speech: “Unsaid but implied was that the new Democratic White House was behind such a move to secularize the nation’s currency.” Baier added: “In actuality the coin’s design was commissioned in 2005, when Republicans controlled congress, and then was approved by then President Bush.”
I realize this isn’t too much to congratulate Fox News for considering this isn’t a subject that concerns a lot of people or will have an impact on our quality of life. I don’t expect them to fact check anything else she has said or will say in the future, but at least they called her out on one of her many disillusions.
