Blogger Markos Moulitsas of the Daily Kos and PBS host Gwen Ifill could
barely contain themselves when they came across an apparent elementary
historical-knowledge gaffe by tea party favorite Sarah Palin, but it turns out
the left-leaning commentators were the ones with egg on their faces.
Moulitsas – a major power-broker in the Democratic Party’s left-wing base –
dashed off a message to his thousands of followers through the Internet social network Twitter after Palin told tea party
activists in Nevada, “Don’t party like it’s 1773 yet,” reported
the blogger who uses the pen name Cuffy Meigs
.
Moulitsas
sneered
, “She’s so smart.”
Ifill wrote:
“Sarah Palin: party like its 1773! Ummm.”
Others mocked Palin with comments such as “uhhh” and “[expletive] happened in
1773?”
Palin presumably knows the U.S. was born in 1776. But what Moulitsas and his
crew didn’t recall was that 1773 was the year of the Boston Tea Party, the
inspiration for the grass roots movement that is threatening to sweep the
Democratic Party from power in Congress next month.
