Palin as Religion

We live our life in our own way,
Never really listened to what they say,
The kind of faith that doesn't fade away
We are the true believers ~ Bouncing Souls, "True Believers"
There is a little bit more to the Sarah Palin/Paul Revere story. When it was revealed that Palin, yet again, had failed an American history pop quiz, her faithful began an amazing effort to rewrite history. The last few days has seen a flurry of activity by Palinites to change the Paul Revere entry to Wikipedia to make it agree with Palin, going so far as to cite Palin's ramblings as a source.

This goes beyond anything political. It's really more of a Popish thing, that by the mere fact that she is Palin, she is incapable of human error. It's funny, sad, and more than a little terrifying.
