What's the world coming to when a Fox commentator like Liz Trotta is quoting Rolling Stone's Matt Taibbi (even though she got his name wrong) and the Washington Post's Ezra Klein?

From Raw Story -- Fox commentator: Bachmann and Palin took history at ‘Fleabag U’:

Liz Trotta, a commentator on Fox Saturday, remarked that two top conservative females, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, would inevitably be compared: “it’s almost preordained because it seems to be they both took the same American history course, and it may have been at Fleabag U.”

Trotta was playfully quoting Rolling Stone‘s Matt Taibbi and Ezra Klein, but she didn’t refute the fact that Palin and Bachmann have each had their share of flubs, between Palin’s Revere gaffe and Bachmann’s insistence that John Quincy Adams is a founding father, among others.

More like Teabagger U if you ask me. Look out Liz, Palin will be coming after you on her Facebook page for being mean to her and her buddy Michele.
