Don't Party Like It's 1773, Yet!

Once again the Stupid TeaBaggers' hero Sarah Palin puts her foot in her mouth. As Markos Moulitsas puts it Sarah is "so smart." And, as Gwen Ifill so succinctly puts it "party like it 1773! ummm." How is it possible that this dolt, this Tea Party idiot, Sarah Palin, doesn't know that the Declaration of Independence took place in 1776!?

Maybe it's because the actual "Tea Party" took place on December 16th, 1773 and Sarah Palin was referring to that event and not the Declaration of Independence. Maybe, horror of horrors, Palin isn't as stupid as you portray her to be.

Weren't the left the ones that were mocking the Tea Party movement for not knowing their history and deprecating the very use of the phrase Tea Party? I've dealt with the appropriateness of the term, Tea Party, in an earlier post so I won't go over it again.

I'm not a Republican, but I am aligning myself with them in this election, and hope that come the night of November 2 we're partying as if it was 1894. (The election of November 6, 1894 saw a massive realignment in US politics. Interestingly enough, the Republicans of 1894 were for government intervention in the economy in ways that the somewhat free-market Democrats were not.)
