That's just too funny. But wait it gets better. John McCain (you know: her running mate) was cosponsor of the bill. I guess she didn't know that. Then there's a statement clarifying this gaffe:
Sarah Palin likes to tell voters around the country about how she “put the government checkbook online” in Alaska. On Thursday, Palin suggested she would take that same proposal to Washington.
“We’re going to do a few new things also,” she said at a rally in Cedar Rapids. “For instance, as Alaska’s governor, I put the government’s checkbook online so that people can see where their money’s going. We’ll bring that kind of transparency, that responsibility, and accountability back. We’re going to bring that back to D.C.”
There’s just one problem with proposing to put the federal checkbook online – somebody’s already done it. His name is Barack Obama.
A campaign spokesperson insisted that Palin was referring not to that specific proposal, but rather to "that kind of transparency in general."Hahahahaha! Yea, that clarifies things.
