Video: Sarah Palin Gaffe - Ronald Reagan Attended Eureka College in...CA?

Sarah Palin is a politician that you either love or hate. No matter which boat you fall in, you know that Sarah Palin is known for saying some pretty quirky things. Sometimes, these things get her in trouble with the press. They will use these nuances against her, showing how she "cuts corners" and "doesn't fact check."

Okay. The most recent Sarah Palin Gaffe came at a speech that she did at Cal State. The former Vice Presidential hopeful and former Alaskan governor made reference to her "hero" Ronald Reagan.

Yes, Ronald was a great American President. "Reaganomics" would be useful nowadays, and the country flourished under his wing. It's understandable that he's a role model and inspiration to a Republican leader.

But you would also think that if someone was your role model and inspiration, you'd do some fact checking before speaking out about him.

On the video below, at approximately the 10:00 minute mark watch to see a Sarah Palin Gaffe. She mentions that this is "Reagan Country" - much to the applause of the crowd.

Reagan did make his mark in the Golden State...but...

Sarah Palin says that Reagan attended Eureka College in California. There is no such college in California - Reagan is originally from Illinois and that is where Eureka College is situated. Not California.

He moved to California AFTER attending Eureka in Illinois.
