Calling Tina Fey. Here’s Palin defending herself on the contention that she got confused about Africa:
“My concern has been the atrocities there in Darfur and the relevance to me with that issue as we spoke about Africa and some of the countries there that were kind of the people succumbing to the dictators and the corruption of some collapsed governments on the continent, the relevance was Alaska’s investment in Darfur with some of our permanent fund dollars" [Maureen Down, "Boxers, Briefs, or Silks?" New York Times, 2008.11.11].
Chapel and Palin have similar facility with the English language. They are both Main Streeters from the real parts of America. Maybe Palin-Chapel is the ticket to lead the Republican restoration in 2012.
Update 10:23: Or maybe not.
