Palin Explains Civil War at Sesquicentennial

ImageSarah Palin visited Fort Sumter today, where exactly 150 years ago the opening battle of US Civil War occurred. Palin, commenting before a Charleston SC film crew, said “This was an important war, because it freed the South from the slaves, and kept the slaves from taking over the North and taking the North’s guns away.” There were murmurs from the crowd, many of whose ancestors fought in the War between the States, but they were silenced in apparent confusion when Palin went on to say, “It’s a good thing, too, because we needed those guns to lick Russia and stop them from purchasing Alaska just a few years later.”
