More Bang Up Reporting from Politico

Jonathan Martin reports:

Sarah Palin reminded Pennsylvania voters of one of Obama’s most notorious gaffes, at a Tuesday rally in Lancaster, reports Lisa Lerer

“Here in Pennsylvania, we just don’t quite know what to make of a candidate who lavishes praise on working people when they are listening and then turns around and talks about how bitterly they cling to their religion and their guns when those people aren’t listening,” said Palin to the crowd of more than 5,000. “We tend to prefer candidates who don’t talk about us one way in Lancaster and then maybe another way in San Francisco.”

If it sounds familiar, it’s because it’s basically the exact same thing she said in her acceptance speech, which incidentally is the same speech she gives on the stump. Why was this reported as news?

    Perhaps because the crowd is still eating it up. It’s kind of like Obama’s “applause lines” about how the GOP will be racist against him. Old news, but still loved by the faithful.
