Sarah Palin - the Comedy Gift That Just Keeps On Giving

First, the ever-brilliant Jon Stewart on Sarah Palin's latest gaff (I know, they're hard to keep up with) regarding her belief that Paul Revere warned the British that the British were coming:

followed by Stephen Colbert's humorous demonstration of what Sarah Palin continues to insist was her accurate description of Paul Revere's ride:

(and for those of you not in America, her insistence that the British were going to take American arms is probably either an intentional suck-up to the National Rifle Association, NRA, and the far right of the Republican party who believe everything is about the right to bear arms mentioned in the second amendment to the U.S. Constitution--even when describing events that happened more than 10 years prior to the adoption OF the U.S. Constitution)

and to top it off, Margaret Thatcher is refusing to meet with Palin:

Frankly, I don't really see why that made the news.  Really, the shock isn't that someone would refuse to meet with Sarah Palin because she's nuts.  The shock should be that there are still people who take Sarah Palin seriously.
