6.President Barack Obama, a true history buff, committed a small omission when he quoted from the Declaration of Independence

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that each of us are endowed with certain inalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness."

His mistake? He dropped the words "by their Creator," which follow "are endowed with."


Mistake? I doubt that very much.

7. In February of this year, former House Majority Leader Tom Delay helpfully reminded Americans that God "wrote the Constitution."

Why did God wait until 1776? Couldn't he have given it to us earlier?

Wow, talk about taking quotes out of context.

But should we be surprised in the least?

"I do not believe in the creed professed by the Jewish church, by the Roman church, by the Greek church, by the Turkish church, by the Protestant church, nor by any church that I know of. My own mind is my own church.

"All national institutions of churches, whether Jewish, Christian, or Turkish, appear to me no other than human inventions set up to terrify and enslave mankind, and monopolize power and profit."

To be, or not to be, that is the question-
Whether 'tis Nobler in the mind to suffer

Or to take Arms against a Sea of troubles,
And by opposing end them?

"Now I got the gun you got the brew
You got two choices of what you can do
It's not a tough decision as you can see
I can blow you away or you can ride with me"
I said, I'll ride with you if you can get me to the border
The sheriff's after me for what I did to his daughter

--Sarah Palin
