Remember just a few months ago when Sarah Palin made the point that food prices were rising and the grief she got for saying it?
Wholesale prices jumped last month by the most in nearly two years due to higher energy costs and the steepest rise in food prices in 36 years. Excluding those volatile categories, inflation was tame.
Yeah, except for your food and the way to get to work (if you still have a job) "inflation was tame." You can't parody the AP. They do a better job on themselves.
Keep in mind that Sarah Palin’s comment on food prices was made in the context of her criticism of Federal Reserve policy.
"All this pump priming (by the Fed) will come at a serious price. And I mean that literally: Everyone who ever goes out shopping for groceries knows that prices have risen significantly over the past year or so. Pump priming would push them even higher."
That makes Sarah Palin a better forecaster than Ben Bernanke, the people at the Wall Street Journal who doubted her and Ryan Chittum and the rest of the Obama cheerleaders at the Columbia Journalism Review.
Oh how I wish Sarah Palin were president.
