GOP watch: Palin, the founding fathers

Sarah Palin, when asked by Glenn Beck who her favorite founding father was, said "all of them" before Beck interjected with, "Bullcrap, who's your favorite."

She then settled on George Washington, because, she said, "he was the consummate statesman; he served; he returned power to the people -- he didn't want to be a king -- he returned power to the people, then he went back to Mount Vernon, he went back to his farm." (Hat tip: Talking Points Memo.)
