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.

    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!

Anyone can make an omelet with eggs. The trick is to make one with none.
