Yes, I’ve seen this story about the fictional McCain adviser claiming credit for the “Sarah Palin didn’t know Africa is a continent” thing. It’s not clear from the story whether the dude actually planted the story, or just claimed credit for it once it was out there, but either way
a) various newsfolk need to be taken to the woodshed for not checking this dude out first, and
b) I’m sufficiently convinced the inherent bullshit level of the Africa story is now high enough to toss it out of my mental estimation of Sarah Palin.
Which is still not very high, mind you, so if you’re a Palin supporter, don’t get your hopes up. But, yeah. Africa. Sarah Palin’s all over that. Now let’s never speak of it again.
