Sarah Palin Should Spend Less Time on Fox News and More Time Brushing Up on U.S. History

Sarah Palin joined a number of other GOP hopefuls in New Hampshire last week making the typical pre-campaign rounds. But unlike Mitt Romney, who managed to focus his speaking on the economy and his business experience, Palin decided to give her fans a brief history lesson on Paul Revere:

He who warned, uh, the British that they weren’t going to be taking away our arms uh by ringing those bells and making sure as he’s riding his horse through town to send those warning shots and bells that we were going to be secure and we were going to be free and we were going to be armed. Divorcios en Republica Dominicana

If this is not evidence enough that the U.S. education system needs fixing, I don’t know what is. Here’s the video of Palin making all her contenders, from Herman Cain (who has made his own recent gaffes in regards to the Constitution) to Michelle Bachmann, look like damn geniuses.


All this leads me to believe that instead of presidential debates, what the GOP race needs is a series of Jeopardy contests, all focused on politics, economics, and American history. That would tell us much more, I’m afraid, about the candidates, than any debate ever could.
