Laughably Ignorant


Just more evidence. Over the weekend Gov. Palin said that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac had “gotten too big and too expensive to the taxpayers.”

Only they’re not even taxpayer funded. It’s only the government takeover, which Sen. McCain supports, that could change that.

I understand that the TV networks and the big papers feel like they’re not allowed to criticize Gov. Palin. But we’re in the middle of a housing and credit crisis and she doesn’t even know what Fannie and Freddie are. It’s an embarrassing level of ignorance that would sink a candidate for house or senate.
