List of Books Sarah Palin Banned Is Just List of Books That Have Been Banned Before

News

According to many billions of emails received today at Wonkette Headquarters, intrepid Internet sleuths from "a formerNew York Times reporter" to "my librarian mum" have discovered the True List of books that wingnut creationist anger-bear Sarah Palin tried to ban when she was mayor of a strip mall in rural Alaska. Well, we have sleuths of our own, and they are called Legion but also all called "Google," and you libtards have been had, again.


For the record, etc., here is the list circulating as Sarah Palin's Banned Book Club, and here is how we found out it's just a generic list of books that have been banned by various wingnuts over the years: We just googled the first half-dozen titles, in order, and sure enough this list is easily found all over the Interwebs, pasted into all kinds of anti-censorship websites.

Also, does anybody actually believe Sarah Palin has even heard of these books, except maybe for Cujo?

AND YET ... it's entirely possible that Sarah Palin got an e-mail forward of this banned books list, from one of her creationist snowmobile friends with an AOL account, and bravely decided to cleanse the Wasilla library of these devilish titles.

Barack Obama delivered his first major address of his post-presidency Tuesday at an event in Johannesburg, South Africa, honoring the 100th anniversary of Nelson Mandela's birth. It was -- as you'd expect for the occasion -- appropriately dignified and thoughtful. It was also every bit as inspiring as you might expect from the first black American president speaking in memory of the first black president of a nation that for most of its modern history was synonymous with apartheid. Let's take some time to bask in what an actual world leader sounds like, shall we?

Guess what Vladimir Putin's getting for Christmas! He's been dropping hints, and you know the Big Orange Baboon can't say no to him for some unknown reason. Gonna be so cute when little Vladdy stumbles down the stairs in his PJs, brushes the sleep from his eyes, and finds MONTENEGRO all wrapped up with a big bow under the Christmas tree. Adorbz!

Oh, but we are to kid! Just a little levity as President Treasonweasel slams a sledgehammer into the international framework that kept us out of another world war for the past 70 years. So why are we suddenly talking about a tinyass country whose chief export appears to be consonants? (Sorry, Montenegro. But your Predsjednik Crne Gore is Milo Đukanović, and your capital city is Cetinje, which is just cheating at Scrabble.)

Well! Donald Trump just got out of a two-hour, closed-door meeting with Vladimir Putin, whose government tried to stage a coup in 2016 to assassinate Đukanović and stop Montenegro's accession to the European Union. Which might not be a coincidence!
