You can't "misunderestimate" Palin's abilities
  • You can't "misunderestimate" Palin's abilities

Sarah Palin, our favorite folksy Republican, never misses a chance to show what she doesn't know, like which newspapers she reads. But today, being Presidents' Day and all, she released this hilarious video that proves Palin has in fact expanded her vocabulary to include some words with four syllables (note:  "Refudiate" is still not a real word).

The video shows a wide-eyed Palin looking up at Lincoln's statue in awe, as if she were on a school trip learning about America's presidents for the first time ever. She narrates the full minute and 27 seconds, proudly enunciating those polysyllabic words, including "emancipator," "liberation," and "America."

 She could give George Bush a run for his money.

Anyway, watch Palin be smart:

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
