Us Weekly ran a story quoting Sarah Palin demanding that Christina Aguilera be deported over her botched performance of the national anthem at Super Bowl XLV.

The item quoted Palin trashing Aguilera as a demanding beauty queen whos clearly in over her head and adding for good measure, If I were president, Id deport Ms. Augilera back to wherever it is shes from and give Amy Smart a call.
The fake quotes originated from an Onion-like satirical web site, relaying a fictional radio interview between the former Governor of Alaska and Fox News host Sean Hannity.
Other choice quotes from Palin that fooled Us Weekly included, Heres another case of an airhead diva going on TV, running her mouth off, sounding like a fool.

You're most likely right about that!
Did you read any of the comments at SuperTuesday?

I can't even begin to wrap my mind around such thinking! Sheeple for sure!
