If you're like me, you eagerly read Slate's unauthorized index
of Sarah Palin's Going Rogue

Well, here's the relevant sentence. She's talking about some people she met while campaigning for governor. "They treated us to slices of homemade rhubarb pie, then gave us a whole blueberry pie that we shared with friends after our 800-mile, 40-hour round-trip, driven to the sound of the Black Eyed Peas and an old LL Cool J remix we found in the glove box."

I'm underwhelmed. Incidentally, though, Uncle L doesn't have any remix albums (well, there's a 12" compilation from '93, but it was vinyl-only), so either it was a cassingle
, or she's playing fast and loose with the facts
. As fun as it is to imagine the candidate listening to a remix of 'To Da Break of Dawn'
or 'Pink Cookies in a Plastic Bag'
for forty hours, I think the latter is more likely.
