Jefferson on the Wisdom of the People

 Posted on October 06, 2008 in Uncategorized

As one of America's foremost scholars of Imaginary History, I am compelled to correct the record on Sarah Palin's slightly erroneous fictional Jefferson misquote (Americablog). What Imaginary History tells us Jefferson in fact said is, "One cannot underestimate the wisdom of the people."

Fantastohistorical academia is riven over the issue of whether this was intended by Mr. Jefferson as an observation or an admonishment.
