Journal FroMan's Journal: Wikipedia Palin Article 1

As of now, the Sarah Palin article on wikipedia has 2000 revisions since 09:50, 28 August 2008. The Joe Biden article on the other hand 2000th revision would place it 01:27, 29 July 2006.

Interesting. I am sure some of it comes from Biden being more of a known quantity for a longer period of time. But a lot of the revisions I see are fairly minor and often repeated, such as one that changes the heading "Public Safety Commissioner dismissal" to "Abuse of power" and back again, and "Pro-Life" to "Anti-Abortion" and back again.

I did find one revision which was pretty chuckle worthy. Look at the previous revision for the picture of the moose.


It seems I am not the only one who found this interesting. I haven't read the story, but it looks related to what I was observing.

    Look at the previous revision for the picture of the moose.

    That picture does a good job of pointing out just how heartless and evil Republicans are -- it shows a momma moose standing ever-vigilant and protectingly in front of a cute little baby moose. Which no doubt Mrs. Palin wants to shoot and make a mooseburger out of and eat. Spread the word, tell the children, Sarah killed Bullwinkle and likes to eat the young!
