Sarah Palin and evolution: how big lies replicate themselves

On this post, a few weeks ago, I attributed some quotes to Sarah Palin. Turns out these weren't her actual quotes, but were acts of satire by another blogger. Hoax quotes, in other words.

I mention this because this particular post on Salmagundi has received more hits than anything I - and my co-blogger Muriel - have ever posted.

I'm deeply pleased that Salmagundi has received so much traffic, but also abashed that I was replicating a lie. I'm sorry, and I will try hard not to do it again.
