Check out this fine rebuttal by Soviet Union expert Peter Schweizer of a WaPo columnist dismissing Palin’s comments regarding Obama’s “Sputnick moment” and his mythmaking regarding the actual Sputnik project and the downfall of the Soviet Union through massive spending projects.
Includes quotes from current SecDef Gates.
Another Oopsies from the WaPo.
Remember it was the WaPo newsroom who stood up and applauded President-elect Obama when he visited them before the inauguration. The NEWSROOM. Not the editorial room. This is the WaPo.
And they’ve been full of Oopsies ever since.
