Palin claims 2010 Miss Information crown !!

By John Breneman

Media Matters -- nonprofit watchdog of right-wing misinformation -- has named death-panel pitbull Sarah Palin its 2010 Misinformer of the Year.

Officially the Glenn Beck Misinformer of the Year Award, the honor goes to Palin for another path-illogical year of distortions and smears. Media Matters cites Palin's litany of "factually challenged claims and vicious attacks."

Having already accused President Obama of wanting to kill her Down syndrome baby (2009) and "palling around with terrorists" (2008), Palin reloaded and kept blasting away at the president. But this year she added the first lady to her crosshairs -- taking puzzling potshots at Michelle Obama's efforts to fight childhood obesity.

Now she can't even get her story straight about "refudiate."

Palin continued her pioneering work in the field of anti-social networking -- using Facebook and Twitter to deliver barely coherent, agenda-driven rhetoric directly to the people, and to shield herself from any potentially embarrassing contact with the "lamestream" media. "I just tweet; that's just the way I roll," Palin chirped to The New York Times.

But wait, there's more. She also guns down a caribou on "Sarah Palin's Alaska" -- her combination reality show/campaign commercial on steroids -- and on Sunday's episode she played lumberjack, literally stumping for future votes with a massive chainsaw.

And don't forget her new book. Chockfull of Obama bombs -- plus she slams Hillary Clinton for some comment she made in 1992. It's all there in "(Real) America by Heart: Reflections on (Exploiting) Family, Faith and Flag (For Fun & Profit)."

For the former Miss Wasilla (1984), the Media Matters crown for 2010 Misinformer of the Year offers further proof of her flair for political pageantry -- taking its place in her trophy case next to such prestigious titles as Miss Adventure, Miss Conduct and Miss Communication.
