Cheeto-land off an running on more conspiracies
UPDATE -- Well the censors or author have deleted the posting since I finished writing this, but it did have 71 comments
Miss Palmer [ie representing Palmer, AK], or Christina Christopher-Taylor, was named as first runner-up. She is a lifelong Alaska resident.
The logic is this. Small local paper  says that Christina Christopher-Taylor was first runner-up, ergo Palin MUST BE A LIAR. ( SDS is one of Alaska's seven daily newspapers, with a circulation of almost 3000 readers)
wingnut cheeto logic is unstoppable in the face of the feeding frenzy of baby conspiracies.
Of course, that would mean that no one has caught this trickery in the Gov. race or even wikipedia (uh oh, is that citations I see there) or how about a press release by Miss America organization. It must be a global conspiracy to pad the resumes of third rate beauty contestants because everyone know that "first runner-up" status gives them political might.
One interesting thing I did see in that article was:
"A Texas state pageant has over 60 (80?) contestants, compared to Alaska's 16 (18?)"
