Sarah Palin is not illiterate!

She can prove her parents were married!

from about 3:05

COURIC: And when it comes to establishing your world view, I was curious, what newspapers and magazines did you regularly read before you were tapped for this — to stay informed and to understand the world?
PALIN: I’ve read most of them again with a great appreciation for the press, for the media —
COURIC: But what ones specifically? I’m curious.
PALIN: Um, all of them, any of them that have been in front of me over all these years.
COURIC: Can you name any of them?
PALIN: I have a vast variety of sources where we get our news.

Now, I'm not suggesting that Sarah Palin has never read a newspaper, after all she majored in journalism at six different colleges before she graduated, so I think it is safe to assume she must have seen one in class at least, and she must have studied hard since she didn't have time to work on the student newspapers at any of those schools.

I think she was just being polite, after all it would have been rude to tell the scary lady from CBS that gets all her news from FOX, Rush Limbaugh and her church newsletter. And she knew damn well that if she bluffed and said she read the New York Times and Washington Post daily and Time, Newsweek and Foreign Affairs regularly she'd have been in for double whammy. Someone in the rotten, liberal, gotcha media would notice that those publications were nowhere to be found in her home or office and she wasn't on the subscription lists AND she'd have the base mad at her for reading the damned liberal Emm-Ess-Emm.
