Palin and the New York Times

Now that we know that Sarah Palin reads The Economist and the New York Times we can test her reading comprehension skills. Here is what Palin has to say after her latest reading of the NYT.
"Well, I was reading my copy of today's New York Times and I was interested to read about Barack's friends from Chicago," Ms. Palin said at the fund-raiser in Englewood, Colo. "Turns out one of Barack's earliest supporters is a man who, according to The New York Times, and they are hardly ever wrong, was a domestic terrorist and part of a group that, quote, 'launched a campaign of bombings that would target the Pentagon and U.S. Capitol.' Wow."

First, it's nice to know that as a conservative, Palin believes the NYT is "hardly ever wrong". Naturally, in conservative talk that means the NYT is hardly ever wrong if I agree with what they print.

Unfortunately, we have to question whether Palin actually read the article concerning the relationship between Ayers and Obama, or, if she did read the article, exactly what are her reading comprehension skills. Try as they might to find a real relationship between Obama and Ayers, the NYT could not do it. And, we know that they are almost always right.

Fact check. What she said is true, and is shown in the article.
Bill Ayers was an early supporter of Obama's. He is also an admitted terrorist (social champion, whetherman etc..)

Conservatives don't spell. You betcha, we don't go for all the book learning. There's only one book for us and the preacher reads it to us. So you libs go read your essays, I need to go buy a six pack.
