Smarter Than a Fifth Grader

I saw this at Michelle Malkin's blog. Sweet Justice!

The Los Angeles Times reported today on a speech Sarah Palin gave in Reno at a Tea Party Express event. In it, the Times quoted Palin as saying they "couldn't 'party like it's 1773' until Washington was flooded with like-minded conservatives."

Of course, that launched a thousand left-leaning ships proclaiming to the world that the stoopid doofus Sarah Palin is, well, a stoopid doofus when it comes to knowing her history. Cuffy at the Perfunction blog has the run-down of the big-name opinionators who felt it was their citizenly duty to point out Palin's abject ignorance. People like Markos Moulitsas of the Daily Kos, and Presidential Debate Moderator Gwen Ifill, people whose job it is to know things and be accurate. Because EVERYBODY knows NOTHING of interest happened in 1773. Right?

Oh snap!



The Palin-bashers are backpedaling, now that they've obviously been handed a fifth-grade history lesson. "Just satire, ha-ha. No, really!"

And I bet Sarah Palin didn't even have to write "1773" on her hand...

Apparently none of them there folks evah visited Bahstahn Hahbah or walked the Freedom Trail there! Seriously, if you visit Boston and don't purchase a "Paul Reveah was heah" T-shirt, you just miss something! LOL.

I'm not happy with the division going on in our country to the point that people don't want to get along.

BUT, when smarty-pants "know it alls" who think we who believe in G-d, believe life starts at conception, and know the honest, real history of this country are all a bunch of dummies; it's nice to see them backpeddle every once in a while. sigh (smile)
