Business Insider ‘s Glynnis MacNicol saw something odd on “The Rachel Maddow Show” last night: Maddow — citing satirical website ChristWire.org — said that Sarah Palin was calling for an “American led invasion” of Egypt to protect North America. Maddow said last night, “This is not Sarah Palin’s idea. This is what someone is suggesting for Sarah Palin.”
MSNBC’s fascination with Palin continues into 2011. MacNicol writes: “so much for Sarah Palin making it through the month without getting connected to Egypt.”
