Sarah Palin Brings Cookies To A School Because She Says State Will Ban Sweets; One Problem: It’s Not True
Speaking at a Christian School in Pennsylvania Sarah Palin teased the audience about running for president by asking if a singer wanted to “perform at an inauguration.” She waited for the applause to die down before protesting, “Not mine!”
Then it was time for Palin to give them cookies, because, as she warned,
“I heard that there’s a debate going on in Pennsylvania over whether public schools were going to ban sweets. I wanted these kids to bring home the idea to their parents for discussion. Who should be deciding what I eat? Should it be government or should it be parents? It should be the parents.”
As is so often the case with this kind of fear-mongering, it’s not true. The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, which first printed the story, retracted it. But that didn’t stop Palin from saying, “How dare they ban sweets from school here!”
