Palin the plagiarist?

Sure, you can't trademark a thought, and to be fair, Republiscums are great at stealing ideas and taking credit for them (just a few examples: 1, 2, 3), especially in campaigns, but when you try to do it with an idea that has already been implemented, well... lets just say you have to be pretty fucking stupid. From CNN:

“We’re going to do a few new things also,” [Palin] said at a rally in
Cedar Rapids. “For instance, as Alaska’s governor, I put the
government’s checkbook online so that people can see where their
money’s going. We’ll bring that kind of transparency, that
responsibility, and accountability back. We’re going to bring that back
to D.C.”

There’s just one problem with proposing to put the federal checkbook
online – somebody’s already done it. His name is Barack Obama.

While that might have been bad enough, her campaign spokesperson said something even more stupid.

A campaign spokesperson insisted that Palin
was referring not to that specific proposal, but rather to "that kind
of transparency in general."

So, yeah. Palin is going to bring "back" the kind of accountability that already exists? If so, then I guess that means that she knows herself that she is useless.

Hey, what's the difference between Sarah Palin and pit bull? Don't insult a pit bull with that comparison. Everyone knows pit bulls are smarter.
