Some Dumb Things Sarah Palin Has Done
Okay, I don’t have one because I can’t think of anything Sarah has done that is dumb. So why does the left and some on the right say Sarah is dumb?
If one person is going to call another dumb, some examples would really be helpful. I suspect they only say that to get the ones who support Sarah all riled up. All I do is shake my head at how desperate and scared the Palin haters are.
Lets compare and see who is the dumb one. Sarah or the Obama shall we?
