From the Huffington Post:

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin tore into Michelle Obama on Fox News Wednesday, criticizing the first lady for what she characterized as a recent condescending defense of her husband's presidency.

Just a bunch of numbskulls who can't read the unemployment numbers and see that 5 trillion dollars in new debt later under her husband, President Obama, five trillion dollars more, and we still have fewer jobs today than we had before he took over," Palin said, responding to a clip of Mrs. Obama claiming that some people are "confused" about the president's real accomplishments. "But, we're numbskulls out here and we just don't understand what these numbers mean, what they represent."
