Wrong-O

Cindy Kilkenny:
Mike Huckabee’s on Fox News right now. The takeaway? Palin received more votes as a mayoral candidate in Wasilla, Alaska than Joe Biden did for President. Shazam!
That's a clever talking point, but it is sadly false.

In New Hampshire alone this year, Biden pulled in 638 votes, even though he had already dropped out before the contest. Palin was elected as mayor in 1996 with 616 votes.

Go further in the primaries, and you see that in the second non-caucus state, South Carolina, Biden got even more votes--694 of them. I could go on: Just here in Wisconsin, a full month after Biden dropped out of the race, he got 755 votes.

I guess that's just one of many, many lies being circulated now about Sarah Palin.
