Sarah Palin probably meant “1600 Pennsylvania Avenue” when, during a speech at the 2014 Values Voter Summit on Friday, she said there’s a lack of truth coming out of “1400 Pennsylvania Avenue.”

The comments came during a speech Friday at the Values Voter Summit. Palin was describing how conservatives shouldn’t retreat when they’re accused of being racist. Palin said “truth is an endangered species” at “1400 Pennsylvania Avenue.” The White House is located at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

In the same speech Palin said she, like many people, rarely wear jewelry in Alaska where people are more often “out chopping wood or butchering a moose.”

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
