Palin 2, Lefties 0

There are so many points which lefties hoped to take down Sarah Palin. Each time they failed. Each time they proved that they, not Palin, were the ones ignorant of history. Each time they became more frustrated and descended further into ignorance and madness as they squirmed to explain themselves. It's kind of beautiful to watch.

It's more complicated, but the essence is, Palin was right: the Soviets sowed the seed of their own collapse by setting off the Space Race.

Before this there was the 1773 moment. Lefties pounced faster than the Right assassinated Rep. Giffords crowd. Their ignorance of significant events in the birth of the United States was stupefying.

Hubris, Nemesis, and Partying Like It’s 1773

When Sarah Palin told a Tea Party crowd last Monday that it wasn’t time yet to “party like it’s 1773,” segments of the left such as Kos’s founder Markos Moulitsas chortled at her supposed stupidity. Their kneejerk assumption was that Palin was so ignorant that she didn’t even know the date of early events in the American Revolution. But since it was actually the Boston Tea Party (1773) to which she was referring, it was Sarah who had the last laugh.

More stupefying is their sense of being part of the intellectual elite which allows them to feel, and thus imply Sarah Palin as trailer trash in the nicest of Daisy Duke traditions that make elites so witty and condescending.

Well, Palin is setting her own tradition. She's 2 for 2 and those intellectual elites are 0 for 0 and it's making them crazier than an outhouse rat in a red hot barrel. With no way out.
