    Excerpts from an upcoming speech from Sarah Palin to a trade group are printed at NRO.

    Sudeep Reddy, a reporter at the Wall Street Journal, criticizes Ms. Palin's remarks about inflationary pressures on consumers. Takeaway line: "Grocery prices haven't risen all that significantly, in fact."

    Facebook post from Ms. Palin discusses the sourcing of her assertion: Mr. Reddy takes aim at this. He writes: “Grocery prices haven’t risen all that significantly, in fact.” Really? That’s odd, because just last Thursday, November 4, I read an article in Mr. Reddy’s own Wall Street Journal titled “Food Sellers Grit Teeth, Raise Prices: Packagers and Supermarkets Pressured to Pass Along Rising Costs, Even as Consumers Pinch Pennies.”
    The article noted that “an inflationary tide is beginning to ripple through America's supermarkets and restaurants…Prices of staples including milk, beef, coffee, cocoa and sugar have risen sharply in recent months.”
