Sarah Palin totally did NOT say Christina Aguilera should be deported

By Liz Kelly

We're sure Sarah Palin totally hearts XTina. (AP)

Oopsy!

Us Weekly mistakenly published some completely fabricated quotes in which former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin was said to have blasted nation anthem flubber Christina Aguilera.

In the comments -- which were crafted by an Onion-like satirical Web site -- Palin, in a radio interview with Sean Hannity, supposedly called Aguilera a "demanding beauty queen who's clearly in over her head" and suggested she be deported because "spicy Latin princesses" shouldn't be allowed to sing at the Super Bowl.

"Unemployment is at nine percent, yet we have to suffer through a performance by a foreigner with a poor grasp of the English language," continues the satire. "If I were president, I'd deport Ms. Aguilera back to wherever it is she's from and give Amy Smart a call."

So this just fills us with confidence about Us's claim that ScarJo and Sean Penn are a couple.

After the jump, see a screengrab of the Us item...

Palin and the Christina Anthem flub in one article? This could be good. (If only it were real)

Though Staten Island is considered a foreign country to some people... sorry, Palin, this one's as much of an American as you.

Wow, talk about poor journalism! It tells you something of Palin-hate out there too, that they'll believe anything said about her without doing any fact-checking. I mean, I'm definitely no fan of hers, but she really does have a way of inspiring weirdly intense hate.

Mrs. Dorkus, I like you and you are a fine addition to our little Island. However, the quotes are FAKE. Sarah Palin didn't really say anything about Cristina Aguilera's nationality at all.

epjd - I hadn't had coffee prior to my comment :)

Unless she was posting under another name in Monday's BKD. But that's not her style, so I doubt it.

I doubt it too Byoolin. When she speaks she lets EVERYONE know.

S'aright Mrs. D. I posted before I saw your zinger of Mr. D. How could he do that to you? MEN!!!!!

Hey now, I'm gonna go ahead and blame Liz and Jen for not keeping us informed on the whereabouts of Ryan Reynolds.

epjd, It's mostly because I want ScarJo all to myself.

I mean, wait, what?

It is very sad that American journalists continue to fabricate lies to smear the Palin family.

It is no wonder that American public approval rating for American journalism is less than 40%. This is much lower than the former East European rating for their communist-controlled journalists, as the latter also similarly manufactured series of blood libels against their dissident politicians.

Why does this surprise anyone, most of the stories written about Palin are based on BS put out by loony left bloggers, and then picked up and run with by the establishment media. When people have been accused of being accessory to murder by many in the establishment media, they figure they can get away with saying anything.

MsDorkus, would you trade your ScarJo for my Daniel Craig?

A demanding beauty queen who's in over her head?! OMG, that has to be the best "pot calling the kettle black" I've ever heard. Sarah WAS talking about herself, right? ...

I stridently dislike Ms. Palin. But not as much as I dislike failing to source-check.

On the positive side, as you say, perhaps this means the ScarJo/Sean Penn story is baloney as well. Lord, I hope so.

Palin never actually said she could see Russia from her house, either, yet that line is treasured as sublime satire delivered by Tina Fey-as-Sarah on SNL, because it embodies a greater truth about a politician who's been characterized by Republican operatives as "uncoachable."

Sasquatch:

Throw in Ryan Gosling as well and we have a deal.

MrsDorkus, I'll check with my beefcake suppliers and let you know.

Palin has to be sitting around her house laughing her a** off. She has no elected office, nothing but a damn Facebook page and a Twitter account, and yet she can drive the democrat establishment, liberal bloggers and the MSM into a frothing at the mouth, bouncing off the wall frenzy not with a comment, but a supposed comment.

You guys are pathetic. No wonder all the major media will be bankrupt in a few short years.
