Sorry, but Tina Fey and others only quote Palin directly. They don't make that stuff up! If you want someone who does not deal in facts, look to Palin. I hate to tell Palin supporters, but people in this country have seen her behavior and heard her speak firsthand (no media intrusion). She has been fact checked and proven wrong too many times to mention, so why don't her supporters know this?? Palin is an easy target because of her immaturity, lack of education, failure to understand economics or the constitution. Why don't Palin followers know that when she lies on national television that she will deny it and say that everything that has been said and written about her is a lie? Wake up, people! You are in denial!

Spent more than $50,000 in city funds to redecorate her office as Mayor of Wasilla
Increased Spending by 55% as Mayor Wasilla
Secured $27 million in Federal Earmarks as Mayor Wasilla
Raised Sales Tax by 25% as Mayor Wasilla
Racked up $20 Million in Long Term Debt as Mayor Wasilla
Supported building the 'Bridge to Nowhere' as Governor of Alaska
Kept $223 Million in Federal Earmarks for the 'Bridge To Nowhere'

1) Took a small town with no debt and left it with over 20 million in debt -
2) As governor, she left her state with a 70% debt to GDP, to put this in focus, California is at a 40% debt to GDP.
3) As governor she charged the state for personal expenses (not related to the job), but also charged for the personal expenses of her husband and kids (who are not even qualified for such compensati­on).
4) She set up a PAC, receiving contributions from her lemmings, then using the PAC to purchase her own book even to this day. If she simply transferred PAC money to her personal account directly, that would be a crime, but by having the PAC buy her books she can legally collect the royalties.
5) Attacks others for using a teleprompter when using one herself.
6) In an effort to get out of the findings of a bipartisan committee that found her guilty of abuse of power, she called for an investigat­ion on herself, allowing her, under state law, to appoint her own cronies to investigate her.
7) Failed to report taxable property although she was governor.

Sarah Palen NEVER said she could see Russia from her house... so, no... not quoting her... mocking her based on misquotes. And, who is doing the "fact checking?" MSNBC? You sure spend a lot of time on here worried about Sarah Palin... funny how much she has been able to get into the heads of liberals... I LOVE that about her! And, seriously? A liberal talks about a liar when they voted for a man who NEVER opens his mouth without lying! He's been fact checked too... BIG LIAR is the result.

In stark contrast to President Obama and other governors whose fiscal records are dogged by credit downgrades, Palin left Alaska with an improved credit rating during and following her tenure as governor. Standard & Poor’s raised Alaska’s credit rating from AA to AA+ in April 2008.

Then in 2010, both Moody’s and Standard & Poor’s upgraded Alaska to AAA for the first time in the state’s history due to policies enacted by Palin that made the state’s finances more than solvent.

Obama's record: spending, debt and... deficits.

Sarah Palin has been attacked and scrutinized like no one else; she’s probably the "cleanest" politician out there.

Soon after Palin entered the national political scene as Arizona Sen. John McCain’s GOP running mate, she was attacked as a diva, a clothes hog, an irresponsible mother and a political mercenary. They dismissed what she achieved as mayor of her hometown, commissioner of the state’s oil and pipeline board and governor of America’s largest state.

The media distorted Palin's positions and beliefs beyond recognition. And almost every word out of her mouth was spun as a "flub".

If Obama received half of the bad press that Sarah Palin does, his favorables would be in the low 30's.

You are beginning to worry me. I am afraid you are losing touch with the people of whom your fame is based. I, after all, was one of your biggest supporters once. I am thrilled that you get invitations to go to NBA games, that you display your Chick-fil-A shirt, and that you go and support your daughter and her celebrity friends on Dancing with the Stars.

But at CPAC last week you made a rush for the exits. After you gave an inspiring speech where you said to a thrilled audience, “At a time when our country is desperate for...
