Quote: Palin on the Statue of Liberty

I've been thinking about posting interesting quotes that tie in with the subjects I blog about for a while now. With sites like Twitter and Tumblr, I come across a lot of interesting things I'd like to share, but don't really feel like commenting on myself. After reading this quote by Sarah Palin, I knew it was time to jump in with both feet.

Palin at the Glenn Beck rally:
"This Statue of Liberty was gifted to us by foreign leaders, really as a warning to us, it was a warning to us to stay unique and to stay exceptional from other countries. Certainly not to go down the path of other countries that adopted socialist policies,” Palin said to cheers from the crowd.
All I can say is wow.

Also, does anyone else think Palin said "foreign leaders" because she didn't know it was the people of France that gave us the Statue of Liberty?

  2. Um, yeah. That's what she meant by, ""Give me your tired, your poor,
    Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
    The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
    Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me,
    I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

    Can't you see, she didn't ask for any commie socialists?

  3. I'm no fan but I would use words such as misinformed, arrogant, and media-savvy. Not stupid.
