Lemmings hop on Palin

Now and then, rather often in fact, the left-wing bias becomes crystal clear. What did the lemmings do lately? Try this, with comment by Power Blog: Sarah Palin referred to “our North Korean allies” on the Glenn Beck show, a slip of the tongue that was deemed newsworthy by CBS News, the Washington Post, and […]
