    I really liked “Eleven Sarah Palin quotes performed by teenage girls” but I do feel it’s also sexist and ageist to 1) equate being a ditz to being female and 2) suggest that arrogance and cluelessness are teenage traits.

    To be fair, Sarah Palin has shown she can be all these things even without the help of tell-all books such as “Going Rouge” or “Blind Allegiance”. Her quotes are comedy fodder within themselves and there are relevant ways to poke fun at her. It’s just not very tastefully done in that HuffPo article.

    Amy Myers, the 10th grader who challenged Michele Bachmann to a debate on American History:

      She’s from my town! I’ve seen this thing develop from the beginning, and it’s pretty exciting to see someone call Bachmann on her BS.
