The wrong address

On September 26th in her speech at the Value Voters Summit Sarah Palin warned that:

“Ignorance and deception, they are the enemies of democracy.”

A few minutes earlier she had criticized the president by claiming:

“Don’t retreat. You reload with truth, which I know is an endangered species at 1400 Pennsylvania Avenue, anyway truth.”

The White House is located at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW. 1400 is two blocks to the east, where the Willard Intercontinental Hotel sits. ABC News gleefully reported that
Sarah Palin’s Confused About Where The White House Is. She referred to her written notes just after that mistake. Using the wrong address didn’t help her credibility. She could instead have directly referred to the White House.

Don’t use the wrong address in your address. Look it up first.
