Palinochio Take the Prize

(updated: 12/27/09)

As reported yesterday by Countdown's regular fill-in host Lawrence O'Donnell, Sarah Palin has garnered the "Best Life of the Year Award" from Politifact for her outrageous and morally repulsive Facebook falsity about "death panels." In the segment below, O'Donnell discusses the runners-up (including the nonsensical "birther queen" Orly Taitz and the conspiracy-finding idiocy of Glenn Beck) with Margaret Carlson of Bloomberg News. Carlson puts it appropriately, saying: "We live in a time when...politicians are not just entitled to their own opinions. They're entitled to their own facts."

So, because the embedded video from MSNBC won't stay up,
here's the
link to the segment. Let me know if it stops working, and I'll correct it.
