Palin Claimed Dinosaurs And People Coexisted
Soon after Sarah Palin was elected mayor of the foothill town of Wasilla, Alaska, she startled a local music teacher by insisting in casual conversation that men and dinosaurs coexisted on an Earth created 6,000 years ago -- about 65 million years after scientists say most dinosaurs became extinct -- the teacher said.

After conducting a college band and watching Palin deliver a commencement address to a small group of home-schooled students in June 1997, Wasilla resident Philip Munger said, he asked the young mayor about her religious beliefs.

Palin told him that "dinosaurs and humans walked the Earth at the same time," Munger said. When he asked her about prehistoric fossils and tracks dating back millions of years, Palin said "she had seen pictures of human footprints inside the tracks," recalled Munger, who teaches music at the University of Alaska in Anchorage and has regularly criticized Palin in recent years on his liberal political blog, called Progressive Alaska.

Over at The November Blog, they're suggesting the nickname "Tri-Sarah-tops" for Palin. Personally, I think "Wilma" as in Flintstone) is more apropos.

Hellions, your thoughts?

If only Fred Thompson had won the nomination instead of McCain.

I am going to rise above my nature and not make any of the obvious and all too easy dinosaur jokes that sping to mind right now.

But I am beging to really believe Rep. Rangel might have been correct.

Or Fred Flintstone.

Have you seen the video of the aerial killing of wolves in Alaska. Yikes.

Hey JD, thanks so much for linking to my blog!

Wilma is pretty awesome!

We need to keep a running list of the nicknames out there for her.

The only problem I have with "Wilma" is that Wilma Flintstone had more on the ball than Palinocchio appears to.
