AP tries pre-emptive assault, fails

Power Line (no fans of Palin) surprisingly scorches Associated Pravda for a fact-light “fact check.” An excerpt:

This is frankly pathetic. Palin says she didn’t “often” stay at high-end hotels, and the AP counters by saying she did, once. Yes, that’s why she said “not often” rather than “never.”

Really, when you lose the Pawlenty-koolaid-drinking elitists at Power Line so easily…

Mark Steyn also contributes his usual sterling observations:

That looks like AP paid 1.8333333 fact-checkers to agree with Mrs Palin: She says she didn’t “often” go for “high-end” hotels; they say she “usually opted for less-pricey hotels”. That’s gonna make one must-see edition of “Point/Counterpoint”.
