I thought this quote was great. NPR asked a professor Robert Allison from Suffolk University in Boston about Sarah Palin’s now famous answer. Here’s what he said at the end:
Sarah Palin is a lightning rod. I just was thinking about how many times, you know, I’ve spoken about Paul Revere. I’ve organized events about the American Revolution. No one ever pays any attention. Suddenly, Sarah Palin comes to town, makes an off-the-cuff remark about what she learned, and suddenly, you’re calling me to find out what I think about Paul Revere and the American Revolution.
