I think she jumped the shark on this. The Concord error just upset the old guys who put on the three cornered hats. The John Wayne Gacey mistake was* just a mistake* not her fault.This mistake is serious. She's got nothing left now but the Dominionists and home schoolers.

Since the answer would be yes, pretty much every time, I guess it's a non-starter.

She has no use for facts, so why would she hire someone to check them?
