    Sarah Palin and Godwink's Law

    Godwink’s Law

    “As a political discussion involving God gets more media coverage, the probability of Sarah Palin making herself part of the story approaches 1.”

    Example: Sarah Palin made a statement defending Miss California: “The liberal onslaught of malicious attacks against Carrie Prejean for expressing her opinion is despicable. Carrie and I spoke soon after the attacks started; I can relate as a liberal target myself. ”

    Addendum: GodWink’s Law also has a secondary meaning:

    “As other stories capture the public interest, the probability of Sarah Palin thrusting herself into the news approaches 1.”



    Is Godwin's Law Palin-specific? Cause Bill O'Reilly is pretty good at it too: http://crooksandliars.com/node/28549

    Godwin's law is something else entirely. Not that Bill O is above that, either.

    "As anything captures Sarah Palin's interest, the probability of Sarah Palin thrusting herself at it approaches 1.”

    That's the kind of personal attack Hitler might have made.

    You're not supposed to point out stuff like that. We're gonna have to chat at the next Party meeting.
