The purpose of Paul Revere's ride was not to warn the British that they weren't going to take away our guns, and he didn't send warning shots or bells (? what confused language she uses!).

A synopsis of her story: "He warned the British by ringing bells and firing warning shots so that they (the British) would know they weren't going to be taking away the colonialists' guns."

That is not true.

After his mission, he and his compatriots were stopped by British troops - the others got away but Revere was held by the soldiers and questioned. This is incidental to the events of that night, and hardly coincides with her version of events.

I agree it's pointless - as pretty much anything Palin says is.
Great post.

Palin is an idiot. I don't understand why some people have trouble understanding that. She is by no means the only idiot - God knows there are plenty of idiots across the political spectrum. But people defending her and trying to explain what she said about Revere are defending ignorance.

And it scares me that otherwise normal and seemingly intelligent people who are probably registered to vote leap to the defense of this ignorant quitter when she is clearly, unequivocally an idiot.

I did not even have to waste my time watching the video because this lady is totaly clueless when it comes to politics or anything to do with history or leading a country. She needs to just have her own stupid reality show and let the thinking as far as politics or anything history related to the people who actually know what they are talking about and are not out just to make a buck.

Hey, Gene, did you fail to read the OP link? It sounds like you didn't do it and now have opened up what you and robbobbo think even though it appears that you are both wrong.

Hang in there with the anti-Palin crap of the Pelosi sound.

I did not know and I live and grew up in Boston. You learn something new everyday
I read all pages of that account and no where did it state Paul Revere alarmed the citizens by shooting guns and ringing bells.

Sorry..she's wrong.

If this is the biggest problem America has, we've got it made.

I'm still waiting to find out from Obama why he thinks we have 56 states. Does he know something we don't?

I guess it depends on your perspective. The left automatically assumed she was wrong. But it turns out they were wrong. When she knows something they don't, she stumbled on it. When they know something she doesn't, shes an idiot.

This is what gives me the biggest laughs No matter which side of the spectrum, the idiot of the moment gets defended, no matter how torturous the logic employed, the partisan crew goes into full spin mode.

YouTube - ‪Forrest Gump stupid is‬‏
By not recognizing this little truism we get what have by way of national electoral choices. Sucks for us as a nation
