There is Wrong and Then There Is This

Ok , it is easy to say Obama when you mean Osama, or Iraq when you mean Iran, but this is beyond.

Where did Palin go to school?*  There is little that is more basic in American history than Paul Revere's ride.  Sure, it has gotten mythologized and all, and you can confuse whether it was one light or two, by land or by sea, but it was about warning the colonials about the British, not warning the British about a second amendment that would not exist for another couple of decades.
* and yes, she does look kind of stoned in this clip.
Didn't Sarah Palin see National Treasure? It is not as if we expect her to have read Gladwell's bit on Revere in Tipping Point. 
Ok, she needs remedial schoolhouse rock:

One of my very favorite School House Rock episodes. I'm going to have that song in my head all day now.
