TPM is making fun of Sarah Palin for noting that the Soviets won the space race.
Ah guys as an old fellow I hate to break it to you but They did. Sputnik was the first satellite that was the race to space. You might have heard of a fellow named Yuri Gagarin, first man into space? That was the Space race
There is a huge difference between the race to the moon and the “race to space”. In their desperation to hit Palin this misunderstand history. Tell me who are the idiots here?
(I do disagree with Gov Palin that it wasn’t the space race, but the ARMS race and Star Wars that was the final bankrupting of the Soviet Union but that’s not TPM’s point)
