As a general rule Liberalism (contemporary not Classical) is dependent upon ignorance, so this little brouhaha is not the least bit surprising.
You have to love it when a bunch of smarmy, arrogant, elitist liberals attack and mock Sarah Palin when a simple Google search would've cleared things up. Instead they pulled a Biden and shoved their feet in their mouths.
Better to stay silent and be thought a fool than open your mouth and remove no doubt. Gwen Ifill, Marko Moulitsas of Daily Kos* and the wonderfully intelligent liberals at Huffington Post have apparently never heard that saying.
Honestly folks, anyone with a basic knowledge of American history should immediately know what happened in 1773, particularly when the words were uttered at a Tea Party rally.
When have facts ever mattered to Liberals? Certainly not when they're frothing at the mouth waiting for an opportunity to call Sarah Palin a moron. Hell, remember liberals claiming that Bristol Palin got booed on Dancing With The Stars? That clearly wasn't the case, but it was an opportunity to attack Palin.
*Speaking of ignorance, Daily Kos, like Delaware Liberal and many other liberal sites, is a hotbed of ignorance. Sadly many of the folks at such sites would not recognize their own ignorance if you beat them over the head with a clue bat.
