For obvious reasons, I don’t write much about Sarah Palin. But I could not help passing on this clip.
Not having grown up in the US and learned its history in any formal way, my knowledge is a bit sketchy. It is especially weak on the specific details of some of the iconic events. But even I have learned enough of the folklore informally to know that Palin had botched the details of Paul Revere’s ride, which raises the question of how it could be possible that she could grow up in the US and not know this. It truly baffles me.
