Palin's Non-Denial Denial

Andrew Sullivans says Sarah Palin has denied having a Facebook account that she uses to praise her own posts. Actually, she hasn't. She wrote:
[T]here’s always buzz about fake Sarah Palin Facebook and Twitter accounts. Please know that this is my only authentic Facebook account and SarahPalinUSA is my only authentic Twitter account. Pay no attention to the fake accounts and their fake messages.
Saying "there's always buzz" about other people (one assumes) setting up fake accounts disassociates her statement from the accusation that she's created an account under the name of "Lou Sarah," since, so far as I've heard, there's never been buzz about that. If we learn that she really is Lou, she'll be able to say she never lied by denying it. My Facebook statement on Feb. 23, she'll say, was about other people setting up fake accounts. That's why I mentioned Twitter.

Not surprising that her cadres accepted this, since by and large they wouldn't care if the charge was proved true. But her critics?
