CAN YOU name a Supreme Court case, other than Roe v. Wade, that you disagree with? Maybe, maybe not. Cite John McCain's record on deregulation? Hmmmm. Know enough about the Bush Doctrine to say whether you agree with it? Uhhhh. Well, Sarah Palin has trouble with those questions, too. Then again, you're not running for vice president of the U.S. Would you confuse our economic crisis with health-care reform? I doubt it, but Palin did. And I bet you could name some newspapers and magazines you read (at least this one)

GUESS THE JOKE'S on us. As Sarah Palin's mystery tour rolled into Philadelphia yesterday, dozens of sweaty reporters and photographers - mostly card-carrying members of the "lamestream media" that Palin openly despises - sprang into action. With a news chopper hovering above, they sprinted toward Independence Hall to get a glimpse of the 2008 failed vice-presidential candidate who abandoned her post as Alaska's governor in 2009 and has reinvented herself as a celebrity quasi-politician who may or may not launch a longshot bid for the White House in 2012.

WITH THEIR rhetoric and scare tactics, Sarah Palin and her GOP cronies have helped to perpetuate threats against some Democrats because they voted for the health-care bill. Palin is a disgrace and an embarrassment to all women, and the GOP is a disgrace to our country. Palin claimed she is a pit bull with lipstick. Well, she needs to be muzzled. Please, someone call the Dog Whisperer! She also needs to put her guns away before she shoots herself in the foot or someone else.

As political strife consumed Washington last week, New Jersey provided a moment of bipartisan agreement, right in the heat of a Senate campaign. Sarah Palin endorsed Republican candidate Steve Lonegan on Wednesday - thrilling Democrats and Republicans alike. For Lonegan, who trails Democrat Cory Booker in name recognition and fund-raising but is polling closer than expected, the nod from Palin got him free publicity and a star name to rally conservatives. He had previously won backing from two other champions of the right, Texas Gov. Rick Perry and Sen. Rand Paul (R., Ky.)

In his article ( "Trippin' " ), William Bender wastes no time doing what liberals reporters do . . . trying to embarrass and discredit Sarah Palin and her followers: "failed vice-presidential candidate," "abandoned her post" and "reinvented herself as a celebrity quasi-politician" at the same time he whines over Palin's description of the "lamestream media. " (The article pretty much sums up how lame you and your colleagues prove to be.) You quote a "pollster" that Palin has "become a celebrity, a kind of rock star with no serious purpose in mind.

The Good Sport Express cruised through Rockefeller Center over the weekend, as Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin turned up on Saturday Night Live to let the Not Ready for Prime Time Players, and a handsome movie star, make some more fun of her. She stood smiling in the hallway with SNL chief Lorne Michaels, as Alec Baldwin pretended to mistake her for his 30 Rock costar Tina Fey, who was onstage mimicking her, dismissing polls that show her...

* GAME CHANGE. 9 p.m. tomorrow, HBO. * THE UNDEFEATED. 8 p.m. Sunday, ReelzChannel. Bottom line: The striving-for-balance "Game Change" is probably most interesting when its subject briefly appears to have lost hers, but Julianne Moore's portrayal of Sarah Palin at her charismatic best also offers some genuine goose-bump moments, the kind that might even cross party lines. Too bad those same moments are often overwhelmed by the cheerleading in the relentlessly pro-Palin documentary "The Undefeated.

If tonight's presidential debate takes place, an Irish bar in Center City will be in the limelight, hosting Gov. Sarah Palin at a pre-debate party. The Irish Pub, 2007 Walnut St., will open its doors at 5 p.m. to receive ticketed guests for the private function. Paul Lindsay, the McCain campaign's spokesman, declined to release any details about tonight's event, or why the Irish Pub had been picked to host the Alaska governor and Republican vice presidential nominee. All Lindsay would say was that Palin, who landed in Philadelphia yesterday, was here to do some preparation for her own debate against Democratic vice presidential nominee Joseph R. Biden Jr. But Mark O'Connor, one of the pub's three owners, said the McCain campaign told pub managers to expect 400 people, a number he said would fit in the tavern's five rooms.

Real convict of Atlanta It'll be some time before we'll see The Real Housewives of Atlanta star Phaedra Parks on her husband's arm. Apollo Nida , 35, was sentenced Tuesday to 96 months (eight years) in federal prison after pleading guilty to bank fraud and ID theft, the Atlanta Journal Constitution reports. Nida ripped off more than 50 people to the tune of $2 mil. Nida could have been given anywhere from 92 to 115 months. U.S. District Court Judge Charles A. Pannell said he handed down a fairly stiff sentence because white-collar crimes of this type see a high rate of recidivism.

McGinniss wrote hard-hitting books on many subjects, from Richard Nixon ( The Selling of the President 1968 ) to Sarah Palin ( The Rogue: Searching for the Real Sarah Palin ).

More than 1,500 Tea Party enthusiasts gathered outside the New Egypt Speedway gate Saturday to rally for U.S. Senate candidate Steve Lonegan, but mostly to see Sarah Palin, the darling of the right and former Republican vice presidential candidate. Palin addressed the flag-waving crowd for about 15 minutes, urging supporters to vote for Lonegan in a special election Wednesday against Democrat Cory Booker, Newark's mayor. The race will fill a vacancy created by Sen. Frank Lautenberg's death in June.

By now, eight years later, after so much debate over his sister's situation - her diagnosis, her prognosis, her wishes, her autopsy - one thought remains dominant for Bobby Schindler: Terri Schiavo deserved to live. Schindler now heads a growing foundation to help others in similar situations. Every year since her death, they've held a "Terri's Day" of remembrance. This year, the Terri Schiavo Life & Hope Network has moved from Florida to the Philadelphia area, where both the Schindler and Schiavo families are from, and the event has grown.

OXON HILL, Md. - Returning to the national stage, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin said Saturday that the Republican Party must broaden its message to grow. "We must leave no American behind," she said in a populist speech that electrified supporters at a conservative summit outside Washington. "And we must share our powerful message of freedom and liberty to all citizens - even those who may disagree on some issues. " Palin, the GOP's vice presidential nominee in 2008, maintained a low profile during last year's election.
