Denial is not just a river in Egypt, Mr. President!

Amongst all the other news of the day, President Obama revealed that he suffers from denial when he said to Barbara Walters in an interview to air later this week :" I don't think about Sarah Palin".

Really, Mr President?

Like in your health care speech when you referred to a "prominent politician" and "death panels":

Or when she challenged you on your nuclear arms strategy?

What about people in you administration responding to Governor Palin? Like your press secretary when he said the following in the NYT recently:

His voice dripping with exasperation, the White House press secretary, Robert Gibbs, said to me one July afternoon in his office: “If I would have told you that I could open up a Facebook account or a Twitter account, simply post quotes, and have the White House asked about those, and to have the entire White House press corps focused on your quote of the day on Facebook — that’s Sarah Palin. She tweets one thing, and all of a sudden you’ve got a room full of people that want to know. . . .”

Gibbs shook his head and continued: “Now, I could say, ‘You know what? I’m not going to deal with that.’ And big headline: Palin Accuses Obama of X. The White House Had No Comment.”

Or when someone in the state department responded to a tweet by Governor Palin:

"My tweet was simply to suggest that a reasonable celebration of President Ahmadinejad's birthday would be to release Shane Bauer and Josh Fattal. I can't imagine why Sarah Palin would object to the release of the two hikers who remain in custody, we think inappropriately," State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley said in response to a question about Palin's criticism.

Or what about today, when you made a Dancing with the Stars reference when pardoning the turkey?

Nope. Govenrnor Palin's not in your head.
