Sarah Palin Gets White House Address Wrong, Internet Piles On

The former vice presidential candidate who once couldn’t explain the duties of her would-be office or name a newspaper she reads every day is also apparently a little rusty on the location of the White House.

Sarah Palin was speaking to activists at the Values Voter Summit in Washington, D.C., Friday afternoon when she seemingly implied that the White House’s address was 1400 Pennsylvania Ave.

As (hopefully) we all know, it’s at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

The portion of the speech came as Palin coached those in attendance on how to deal with liberals “playing the race card’’ by “crying ‘racism’…just to end debate.’’


“Well, don’t retreat,’’ she began her oft-repeated line. “You reload with truth — which I know is an an endangered species at, uh, 1400 Pennsylvania Ave. anyway, ‘truth.’’’

Though foot-in-the-mouth gaffes are hardly exclusive to only one party, Tweeters were predictably and playfully cruel about the mess-up:

Keep being you, Sarah.
