Special "Don't know much about history" Edition...
Ace at Ace Of Spades HQ:
"If you don't know what happened in 1773... make sure you read through all the Very Intelligent Liberals' tweets mocking her (duh, like nothing happened in 1773! What a dunce!) before coming to the (rather obvious) answer... But it never occurred to Kos or all of his idiotic minions. But Palin's dumb and they're ever so smart, eh?"Ed Driscoll:
"Why don’t elites know their history — or at least how to use Google?"Whitney Pitcher at Conservatives 4 Palin:
"Moulitsas has been too busy trying to astroturf internet search engines to smear conservatives running up to the midterm elections to study up on American history. Gwen Ifill perhaps took a history lesson from Joe Biden who confused the First and Second Articles of the Constitution during the 2008 Vice Presidential debate that she moderated between Biden and Palin... It's always humorous to see the pseudointellectual Left get knocked down from their high horse. Perhaps this chronologically wrong version of history is taught on that 'unicorn ranch in fantasyland' that Governor Palin spoke of last week."Bryan Preston:
"Not for the first time, I have to admit a crush on Sarah Palin. She just brings out the worst in all of her enemies without even trying, doesn’t she?"Jimmie Bise at The Sundries Shack:
"You know, it’s possible to be so convinced of your own superior intelligence that you can be easily goaded into making stupid mistakes. Call it The Khan Principle, after that genetically-engineered mastermind who let an aging starship captain bait him into disaster. Now, Markos Moulitsas is no lab-grown super being, but he does have just a teeny tiny superiority complex, especially where Sarah Palin is concerned. And since he’s one of the leading lights of the progressive Democratic Party, where he goes, many will follow, even if is to a mass petard-hoisting... This is the point at which Markos delivers a speech about stabbing at Sarah Palin from Hell’s Heart and what he’d do for hate’s sake, no doubt."Daniel Foster on The Corner at NRO:
"Of course, a heap of lemmings piled on with their 'ummms' and 'uhhhs' and incredulity at Palin’s ignorance. One even asked 'WTF happened in 1773?!' The Boston Tea Party, that’s all."Michelle Malkin:
"Sarah Palin wisely warned Tea Party activists to keep working hard right up until Election Day — and not to 'party like it’s 1773' yet. Intellectually superior leftists from Daily Kos founder Markos Moulitsas to PBS 'moderator'/Obama cheerleader Gwen Ifill took to Twitter to snicker about Palin’s historical illiteracy. But it’s the Palin-bashers who humiliated themselves... Of course they wouldn’t know when the Tea Party occurred. They’re too busy wallowing in teabagging jokes and hate smears."Dan Riehl at Riehl World View:

"Memo to the elites: When goofing on Sarah Palin's supposed historical illiteracy, make sure you've at least gotten past fourth grade history."Hillbuzz:
"Whenever the Left attempts to attack and ridicule anyone, they normally just damage themselves, without realizing it. This is especially true when it comes to Governor Palin. The blind, irrational, misogynistic hatred these people have for her clouds their minds and judgment. They are so eager to smack at her — hard — that they never stop to think about what they are doing, or how foolish they look because they are so often dead wrong in what they attack her on."Melissa Clouthier via Twitter:
"Wherein @markos looks like a moron. Again."Susan Duclos at Wake Up America:
"The left were having a field day stating that Palin didn't know the date of the Tea Party. Welllllllllllllllllllllllll, once they actually looked up the Tea Party, you know, using the dandy little thing called a SEARCH ENGINE..... the backtracking began... But not until dozens of members of the left, starting with Daily Kos founder Markos Moulitsas decided to make complete asses of themselves... humiliating each and everyone that repeated his idiocy... Palin definitely got the last laugh here."Jim Treacher at The DC Trawler:
"Well, we know the left has been having problems with spelling lately. But how’s their basic historical knowledge?"Allahpundit at Hot Air:
"Lefty insta-meme: Idiot Sarah Palin doesn’t know that the Declaration of Independence was signed in 1776! Because, after all, nothing happened in 1773 that could possibly be worth referencing at a tea-party rally, right? ...I realize that the thought of protesting against taxes is anathema to lefties, but has their memory of the Boston Tea Party really faded that far? Good lord."ZIP at Weasel Zippers:
"You think they would have caught on she was talking about the Boston Tea Party considering the fact she was speaking at a Tea Party rally…"Cassy Fiano:
"Of course, given the anti-American leanings of these progressive liberal idiots, they might just be angry to be reminded of a significant event that helped lead to the founding of the greatest country on Earth. Thinking about our nation’s founding probably gets in the way of their I-Hate-America fantasies. I can only imagine how much it must bother them to be reminded of moments of American greatness and all, especially from an ignoramus like Sarah Palin… who just schooled them on American history."Larry Johnson at No Quarter:
"Methinks that ye olde lefte ought to pick up a history book or two."Moe Lane at RedState.com:
"While I understand and expect that your average online progressive blogger has about [as] much awareness of American history as, say… Oh, this is awkward. An online progressive blogger would be the actual yardstick for ‘abysmally ignorant about American history.’ Nonetheless, while I understand that the Online Left is dumb… really, Gwen Ifill. You’re supposed to be one of the bright talking heads. Tsk, tsk."Sister Toldjah:
"If Palin has to own up to her mistakes, shouldn’t the myriad of left wingers who just demonstrated their Stuck-On-Stupidity by way of their obvious ignorance of history be obligated to, you know, do the same? Just askin’…"- JP
