Palin Misquotes Albright: "Place In Hell Reserved For Women Who Don't Support Other Women".

The false claims never end. Palin now claims that she read on the side of her Starbucks coffee the following quote:

"There's a place in Hell reserved for women who don't support other women."
She told the crowd that this was a quote from former Clinton Secretary of State Madeleine Albright. Albright has said that she has been misquoted and that what she actually said was:
'There's a place in Hell reserved for women who don't help other women.'"
Albright has released a statement saying:
"Though I am flattered that Governor Palin has chosen to cite me as a source of wisdom, what I said had nothing to do with politics. This is yet another example of McCain and Palin distorting the truth, and all the more reason to remember that this campaign is not about gender, it is about which candidate has an agenda that will improve the lives of all Americans, including women. The truth is, if you care about the status of women in our society and in our troubled economy, the best choice by far is Obama-Biden."
Even as Palin made the comments one got the sense that she expects to be pulled for it:
"Okay, now, thank you so much for receiving that well. I didn't know how that was gonna go over. And now, California, let's see what a comment like I just made, how that is turned into whatever it'll be turned into tomorrow with the newspaper."
You don't have to turn it into anything, you simply have to point out that, once again, the McCain/Palin ticket are playing fast and easy with facts.
