“That was another one of those WTF moments, when he has so often repeated, the Sputnik Moment, that he would aspire Americans to celebrate, he needs to remember that what happened back then with the former communist USSR and their victory and that race to space, yeah, they won, but they also incured so much debt at the time that it resulted in the inevitable collapse of the Soviet Union so I listen to that Sputnik Moment talk over and over again and I think, no we don’t need one of those.” Sarah Palin
Not only did she say “WTF” but she also has no idea what actually caused the disintegration of the Soviet Union. Sputnik was not it. And Sarah Palin is a fucking idiot. Seriously, crack open a book, Sarah. Start with a second grade Social Studies textbook.
