The former governor and perhaps future senatorial candidate of Alaska is using her Twitter account to make one thing clear. Ever since she emerged on the national stage, basically everything she has said has been right.
She was right about Fannie and Freddie.

The issue: The "it" to which she refers is her argument in September 2009 that the mortgage companies had "gotten too big and too expensive" for taxpayers.
The vindication: The president's announcement on Tuesday that he planned to wind down government ownership of the two agencies, which, in his words, "were allowed to make big profits buying mortgages, knowing that if their bets went bad, taxpayers would be left holding the bag."
The truth: At the time Palin spoke, the government had only announced its planned takeover of the two agencies a few hours previously a takeover that hadn't yet gone into effect. At the time, the Huffington Post spoke with several economists, who disagreed with Palin's assessment.
Ultimately, the takeover did cost taxpayers a lot of money in part because of their confidence while making bad bets before the economic crash that they would be relieved by the government.
Rating: Palin was partially right.(continued)

Got that? Obama's scandals aren't scandals.
Must really piss off libs to have to admit that Sarah Palin was right about everything she said about Obama
Interesting to read the comments. Pro-Palin: in most cases bring up policies or statements, anti-Palin: either runs with the “Palin is stupid meme”, or show real signs of disturbed sexuality.
Boy, some people really do have psycho-sexual problems! The comments are as revealing as they are nauseating.
Palin was RIGHT in all the issues documented, including Death Panels, on which the magazine is deathly silent.
