The latest bizarreness to emerge from Sarah Palin's "memoir" (if you can call something that appears to be totally invented a memoir) is a misquote that rightfully belongs in a book edited right here in Maine, by Friends of the Phoenix Nathaniel May (yes that one) and Clint Willis, as well as James W. Loewen.

In last week's Phoenix, I wrote about New Left Media, and the No On 1 documentary they produced during election season. That doc was pretty straightforward (and moving), but Chase Whiteside and Erick Stoll are at their best (and funniest, and most terrifying) when they highlight the views of ill-informed right-wingers
Republican vice-presidential nominee has blamed the Alaska state troopers on her gubernatorial protection detail for her family's continued persecution of her ex-brother-in-law, Alaska state trooper Mike Wooten, which has turned into "Troopergate." She did so last week, in a segment of an interview with a reporter from WMUR, the ABC affiliate in Manchester, New Hampshire.
Yes, it's true - the very show in which WCSH 6 denied the existence of global warming and allowed a man to claim that Earth's gravity has cycles that affect the climate also included an interview by Rob Caldwell with Senator John McCain.
Caldwell's interview (watch it below) is getting attention all over the blogosphere, mainly because McCain was such a horrendous liar and was unable to compently deliver non-answers to Caldwell's relatively simple questions.
The McCain campaign can hardly say they didn't ask for it, by selecting someone who two years ago was the mayor of a town smaller than Cape Elizabeth - and who couldn't vote on town council business unless there was a tie. But it's actually kind of surprising how much material there is now becoming available on Alaska governor Sarah Palin.
