Monday,Â at a Tea Party Express event in Nevada, she warned the crowd not to get overconfident, telling them they wonâ€™t be able to â€œparty like itâ€™s 1773â€³ until a bunch of tea-party candidates are safely elected. Lefty insta-meme: Idiot Sarah Palin doesnâ€™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?
Cuffy Meigs at Perfunction did the hard work of sifting through tweets from left-wing imbeciles, so Iâ€™m going to force you to click over there for his full round-up. I do want to steal this one, though:
Thatâ€™s from Gwen Ifill, respected PBS fixture and â€” remember? â€” moderator of the Palin/Biden VP debate back in 2008, a job she landed right around the time she was working on her book about the glory of Hopenchange. You sure showed her, Gwen.
Via Hot Air alum Bryan Preston, hereâ€™s video of Palin at yesterdayâ€™s event standing in front of all sorts of signs referencing tea parties. Get it? 1773, tea party. Right? Exit question: 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.
