She just denied she ever denied manmade global warming. On ABC News. And got easily schooled by the press after.

I can appreciate the tragedy of her situation. She denied man-made climate change quite explicitly twice. Part of her whole thing is that she's not a duplicitous Washington type. And she's an unconventionally-educated woman of the people. So why not stay with the ill-informed thing? But there's only so far you can go in that direction with the moderate wing of her party, and with independents. I feel like the Obama campaign's fate will rest partly on whether they can knock Palin off her pedestal in the coming weeks. This should give them something to work with. Image: flickr/zieak
