During Fox's telecast of the Kobalt Tools 400 NASCAR race in Las Vegas on Sunday, Fox's NASCAR commentator Michael Waltrip and studio host Chris Myers displayed their ignorance by ridiculing former Alaska governor and Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin over words she never even said or that have never even been associated with her.
After getting tongue-tied on live television when attempting to say that Brad Keselowski's crew chief Paul Wolfe was a master strategist, Waltrip mistakenly said Wolfe was a "master strategery." Clearly embarrassed, Waltrip, like any insecure man, then immediately tried to make himself feel better by referring to Wolfe as someone who had "Palin strategery," linking "strategery" to Palin.
One huge problem.
Waltrip made a fool of himself again, for Palin has never been accused of making up the word "strategery." Will Ferrell, in a Saturday Night Live episode in October of 2000, used "strategery" in a skit about the presidential debate between Bush and Al Gore to mock Bush.
"One huge problem?" There does not seem to be nearly enough molehill here to even begin constructing this mountain. After all, despite what this idiot contends, Waltrip NEVER suggested that Palin invented the term, he only used her name to indicate something stupid, which considering what everybody knows about Palin is reasonable.
Of course one might imagine that this overreaction would stand on its own and nobody would give it any unnecessary attention, But that "one" would not know Palin very well.
She quickly retweeted this:
Baseless: NASCAR Announcers Michael Waltrip, Chris Myers Pick on Palin for Comments She Never Made: During Fox... bit.ly/YTprSPYep that's right. Palin's antennae went up at the opportunity to once again act like a victim, and she followed this up with yet another tweet:

Hey Waltrip, final lap & you still don't have your facts right. Get some "strategery" and check your facts before you shoot off your mouth.Here's the problem, well one of the problems, with Palins's tweet.

She actually DID use the term "strategery." As you can hear for yourself in this 2010 interview with Bill O'Reilly at the 48 second mark:
At some point these idiots are going to have to recognize that for the foreseeable future Palin will continue to be the butt of an endless number of jokes, and will probably ALWAYS be used as shorthand for indicating how stupid something is. I mean if NASCAR is mocking you, you know EVERYBODY is mocking you.
These few sad Palin supporters can run themselves ragged trying to defend every perceived slight that comes down the pike, but the reality is that Palin will run out of bots well BEFORE comedians and pundits run out of jokes at her expense.
