Olbermann Takes Sarah Palin to Task for ‘Eureka’ Gaffe


Over the weekend, Sarah Palin made one of the more embarrassing errors of her esteemed oratory career when she told the cheering California State University-Stanislaus crowd that Ronald Reagan had gone to California’s Eureka College. While Eureka College is in fact where the former president attended, the college is … not located in California (it’s in Eureka, Illinois).

Tonight, introducing the clip, Keith Olbermann did not hold back in tearing into Palin.

None [of the things she said] is more symbolic of her imbecility, her corner cutting, her downright endorsement of stupidity instead of intelligence than this one.”
