Annenberg Political Fact Check exonerates Palin

In a post September 8 entitled "Sliming Palin," the University of Pennsylvania Annenberg Public Policy Center's site FactCheck.org stated that Alaska Governor Sarah Palin "did not demand that books be banned from the Wasilla library."

The Web site's discussion of the matter appeared under the heading, "Not a Book Burner."

Anyone paying attention already knew that. The issue was always that she wanted to know if the librarian would do it, then when the librarian said no, fired her a few days later.

Demand, request, order the outcome can be what you want if you use the right words.

Exonerates is a strong word in this case. It does not appear that Palin is particularly Librarian-friendly.
