Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin picked a fight with U.S. Representative-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez over the latter’s misstatement regarding the makeup of the nation’s government.
After the New York Democrat described “the presidency, the Senate and the House” as the “three chambers of government,” Palin published a blog post calling her out for the incorrect depiction.
Of course, many on social media pointed out Palin’s own struggle to answer certain questions as John McCain’s running mate during the 2008 presidential campaign.
You have got to be kidding me. You said:
Paul Revere warned the British
Sputnik bankrupted Russia
The Vice President Runs the Senate
The Constitition is based on the Bible
The White House has a ‘department of law’
Should I continue? Because I can…

Ocasio-Cortez took on Palin directly in her own tweet, calling her one of two “fallen GOP Vice Pres candidates going after a freshman Congresswoman that’s not even sworn in yet.”
She went on to write that the posts mocking her statement “look like the FWD:RE:FWD:WATCH THIS grandma emails from the ’08 election they lost.”
The other vice presidential candidate she referenced was Joe Lieberman, who ran alongside Democrat Al Gore in the 2000 election. He penned an op-ed earlier this year urging voters to support Joe Crowley in his primary race against Ocasio-Cortez.
