    1 by land, 2 by sea...does that ring a bell retard!

    her flock was busy editing the section on Paul Revere on wikipedia the other week to make it more in line with "her" version of history...
    William F. Buckley describes a conservative as, "someone who stands athwart history, yelling Stop." - and then proceeds to drag civilization back to times best left in history's dungheap.

    Maybe they should publish a textbook. I'll bet Texas would adopt it. They tend to be big on revisionist History, not to mention Science.

    And she's supposed to be one of the chosen few to be the great hope of conservatives. I only hope they keep looking.

    Holy old news Batman. Where have you people been for the past two weeks? And by the way, dozens of historians have already confirmed that the SPECIFIC event she was talking about is 100% accurate.

    After the British captured Paul Revere he warned them that we were already prepared for their arrival.

    Jeeze, Palin Darrangement Syndrom is a sad sad thing to watch.
    Rules? You mean we have RULES for that???

    Lam you are Libertal Joke. Sarah would smoke you in politics but she was a mayor a Gov and almost became VP but you think she's stupid. The only stupid one is you. I can just bet inside you are a unhappy man its so easy to spot it in your posts. You try to make yourself look like the man on a internet board that knows it all but in reality not happening.

    Jeeze, Palin Darrangement Syndrom is a sad sad thing to watch.

    So, what is the real story? Did Palin commit one of the most baffling re-tellings of revolutionary history in recent memory, or is she the victim of the sinister "gotcha" media (her nickname for any reporter/organization that asks her questions to which she doesn't have an answer)? The answer is clear, and any objective individual ought to be confident in saying that Palin's version of the story is a piece of historical fraud. A cursory reading of Paul Revere's own telling of the story in his letter to Jeremy Belknap is sufficient to show that this is the case.
    In Palin's defense of her remarks, she claims that the British had been in the area of Revere's ride for seven years and that "part of his ride was to warn the British." There was certainly a British presence in that area, as Revere notes, but nothing about his telling of the events of that night suggest that part of his mission was to inform them about the presence of a rebel militia. So, unless Palin means that by warning the rebels Revere was also unintentionally warning the British, her second set of claims has no basis in history. Moreover, if she was referring this supposed unintentional warning, that certainly seems like an odd feature to focus on when asked about Paul Revere's ride.
    So what about Malcolm's claims that Revere "warned" the British upon his capture? This is also quite a stretch. This is what Revere claims happened upon his capture in pg. 4 of his letter:
    "I observed a Wood at a Small distance, & made for that.When I got there, out Started Six officers, on Horse back, and orderd me to dismount;-one of them, who appeared to have the command, examined me, where I came from, & what my Name Was? I told him. it was Revere, he asked if it was Paul? I told him yes He asked me if I was an express? I answered in the afirmative. He demanded what time I left Boston? I told him; and aded,that their troops had catched aground in passing the River,and that There would be five hundred Americans there in a short time, for I had alarmedthe Countryall the way up.He imediately rode towards those who stoppd us, when all five of them came down upon a full gallop; one of them, whom I afterwards found to be MajorMitchel, of the 5th Regiment, Clapped his pistol to my head,called me by name,& told me he was going to ask mesomequestions, & if Idid not give him true answers, he would blow mybrains out.He thenaskedmesimilar questions to those above.Hethen orderd me to mount my Horse, after searching me for arms. He then orderd them to advance, & to lead me in front. When we got to the Road, they turned down towards Lexington. When we had got about one Mile, the Major Rode up to the officer that was leading me, & told him to give me to the Sergeant. As soonas he took me, the Major orderd him, if I attempted torun, or any body insulted them, to blow my brains out. We rode till we got near Lexington Meeting-house, when the Militia fired a Voley of Guns, which appeared to alarm them very much."
    As you can see, his "defiant warning" to the British was much less a warning than it was a confession as a result of being interrogated at gunpoint and upon threat of death.

    my brain refuses to allow me to believe that people truly think she is intelligent, maybe if you took the short bus to school she would be considered such in comparison. if she had a D after her name republicans would be calling her a moron/idiot like the rest of us.

    Even though I think she's an idiot, I don't see anything wrong with her saying what she said in this case except that she sounds stupid the way she is saying it....and he didn't fire any shots nor ring any bells, he was on a secret mission....

    At least she didn't say he was the one who rode through town screaming "the British(or Redcoats, I've heard it both ways) are coming!", I saw on the History channel that we were all lied to in school about that shit, since most colonials still thought of themselves as British it would've been confusing....

    She sounds worse than GW Bush....
    "He who warned, uh, the British that they weren’t gonna be takin’ away our arms, uh, by ringing those bells, and um, makin' sure as he’s riding his horse through town to send those warning shots and bells that we were going to be sure and we were going to be free, and we were going to be armed."
    Coarse edged youth, the irish pendants string from their smiles
    not yet plucked as to slacken the seams
    and drag down the features of age,
    no folds or creases from unkempt wear
    eyes of tranquilty, crystalline-beads
    no sign of despair in their hair, nor their hearts
    but oh they have yet to be experienced and that makes aging so very worth it...ML circa2012
