Sarah Palin slipped up today and tacitly admitted that human beings (presumably even herself) evolved from apes, effectively abandoning her long stated position that she doesn't believe in "that dang evolution."
In her Will and Ariel Durant inspired classic "Going Rogue," she wrote that she "didn't believe in the theory that human beings -- thinking, loving beings -- originated from fish that sprouted legs and crawled out of the sea" or from "monkeys who eventually swung down from the trees."
Fair enough. She's no different than millions of other intolerant zealots who don't believe in science, reason, or truth. But today on FOX News, perhaps flustered in the presence of designated fluffer Sean Hannity, Mrs. Palin let her fundamentalist guard down.
Former Senator and GOP Presidential hopeful Rick Santorum (R-PA), who's every bit as wacky as Mrs. Palin, had criticized the notoriously thin-skinned former Alaskan Governor for skipping this year's CPAC meeting. Santorum said of Palin, "I have a feeling that she has some demands on her time, and a lot of them have financial benefit attached to them."
In an appearance on "Hannity," Mrs. Palin reacted to Santorum's comments.
