Arrested Motion alerts us to TrustoCorp.’s latest project, one that pokes fun at our secret guilty pleasure—tabloid magazines. They’ve gone into magazine stands, bookstores and pharmacies throughout Hollywood, Manhattan, Williamsburg, LAX and JFK to drop copies of these little artistic interventions for the unsuspecting public.

Charles Johnson at Little Green Footballs notes that Sarah Palin fans are trying to edit Wikipedia to reflect her, uh, understanding of Paul Revere’s freedom ride.

Wikipedia editors are reversing suggested edits (see the Paul Revere discussion page and revision history) so those looking to re-imagine the ride have turned to Conservapedia where we now learn that “Part of the purpose of the ride was to warn the British that colonists would exercise their gun rights.”

As Johnson notes:

What “gun rights?” When Paul Revere took his famous ride, there was no US Constitution, and no Second Amendment.

Palin has monetized micro-blog bomb-throwing. She attacks people via her one-way Internet communication — the “lamestream” media reports it and she stays topical. It’s catnip. It’s a Real Housewives level of guilty pleasure voyeurism. She’s tapped into our love of shamelessness. The more we reward her with attention, the more she keeps giving … and giving.

To quantify this point, I’ve assembled a list of her media feuds since she was tapped to be veep. Call it a supplemental: A hyperlink to her hyper-sensitivity.

In New Video Sarah Palin Snipes Back at Critics Who Say She May Have Incited Violence in Tragic Tucson, AZ Shooting. She Accuses Journalists and Pundits of  ”Blood Libel.”

[W]ithin hours of a tragedy unfolding, journalists and pundits should not manufacture a blood libel that serves only to incite the very hatred and violence they purport to condemn. That is reprehensible.
