Palin’s alternate reality where war is peace, black is white, and up is down

The Anchorage Daily News is astounded at Sarah Palin’s response to the Troopergate report:

Sarah Palin’s reaction to the Legislature’s Troopergate report is an embarrassment to Alaskans and the nation.

Her response is either astoundingly ignorant or downright Orwellian.

Palin’s response is the kind of political “big lie” that George Orwell warned against. War is peace. Black is white. Up is down.

Courtesy of Rachael Maddow, watch Palin lie, repeatedly and enthusiastically:

Or read the excellent article in The Atlantic, by someone who took Palin’s challenge to read the entire Troopergate report and says Palin is “outright lying” and is petty and vindictive.
