Geez, the media doesn't follow you around when your family are going on a road trip in an inconspicuous bus, do they? I mean, for crying out loud.
But in Boston, the LSM finally caught up to her, and all but trapped her, leading her to give that now infamous answer about Paul Revere (which, depending on your perspective, was either wrong or merely mostly wrong).
On Fox News Sunday yesterday, she doubled-down, saying her response was correct, but also saying that she was answering "a shout-out, gotcha-type of question."
And this time, she was right. Knowing what the landmine of a question it was, it's amazing she answered as lucidly as she did. Had I been asked a similar question, I probably would have frozen up in fury, and lost it, yelling "how dare you?!" at the questioner. Sometimes, the press oversteps its bounds, either through its biases or lack of common decency, but this time, it was a callous mixture of both. Whoever asked it ought to be ashamed. Sarah Palin, for all her faults, is a human being. I'm sorry, this may not be a popular opinion around here, but she deserves to be treated as such. This is the vile "gotcha" question that led to her answer about Paul Revere:
What have you seen so far today [in Boston], and what are you going to take away from your visit?
