Palin delivers a gaffe-filled message

(CNN) - In a Thanksgiving message, Sarah Palin made fun of the president, herself and one of her favorite targets, the media.

Thursday's Facebook post came on the heels of a mistake she made on conservative Fox News anchor Glenn Beck's radio show earlier this week. She mistakenly referred to America's ally, North Korea instead of South Korea, a story many in the media covered quickly.

"It seems they couldn't resist the temptation to turn a simple one word slip-of-the-tongue of mine into a major political headline," Palin wrote. "The one word slip occurred yesterday during one of my seven back-to-back interviews wherein I was privileged to speak to the American public about the important, world-changing issues before us."

She said her gaffes receive more attention than those made by the president and vice president. In honor of the claimed-disparity she titled the post "A Thanksgiving Message to All 57 States," a reference to a mistake President Obama made on the campaign trail in 2008.

The former Alaska governor dedicated the first paragraph of the post to almost a dozen slips of the tongue by Obama.

"I didn't have enough time to do one for Joe Biden," she wrote.

Palin also chastised the media for creating stories "out of thin air."

"Let's hope that perhaps, just maybe, they might get it right next time. When we the people are effective in holding America's free press accountable for responsible and truthful reporting, then we shall all have even more to be thankful for!"

    For a woman who is making millions complaining about the media, she's in the media every single day and she holds no public office, no job other than being a celebrity. She's the Paris Hilton of politics, famous for being famous. Without the media she'd be nothing. She hates the media so much and then complains that she had SEVEN INTERVIEWS in one day. One must assume those 7 interviews were with the media and agreed to by her and her PR people.

    I agree with her, it would be great if "the media" ignored her and her family completely.

    Would-be-dictator Palin is seeking to silence the free press and feed her skewed version of the facts to the people ala Hugo Chavez, Stalin and other's that feared exposure of their treacherous schemes.

    Oh I can hear the Republicans in chorus now, saying the Dems are afraid of Palin. I think everyone should be afraid, really afraid, if this ignorant, incompetent and incredibly dumb person ever gets close to the White House. She is a quitter and a bombastic buffoon. thus she is incredibly qualified for a job on Faux News.

    Run Sarah Run. Obama will kick your butt back to your double wide in Wasilla.

    This woman needs some medical help for some serious mental issues. Her condition is deteriorating rapidly.

    Man, those Palins have thin skins. She and her family need to toughing up if they want to move up in the world of politics.
