Sarah Palin has invented a new game. It's called "stump the candidate," and she thought it might be fun to play, since people keep dogging her knowledge and experience.

And speaking of pesky Internet mishaps, someone has fessed up to being the Sarah Palin e-mail hacker, claiming the break-in was easy. The hacker didn't find much there, though, beyond further confirmation that someone who doesn't understand that you shouldn't use Yahoo to conduct state affairs is probably not prepared to be president.
