The late Christopher Hitchens once observed that “George Bush is stupid has become the joke that stupid people tell.” Well, stupid people have expanded their repertoire to include false stories about former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.

AFP’s Emal Haidary was among the many people who tweeted the Daily Currant’s latest satire.

Great job, Emal! You’re so eager to smear Sarah Palin you basically trolled yourself.

[Update]

Haidary’s tweet has been quietly deleted. Gone, but not forgotten!
