    Re: Sarah Palin: Paul Revere's Ride to Protect the Second Amendment

    How many people think Obama actually thinks there are 57 states?

    How many people think Sarah Palin's Paul Revere comments were "just a gaffe"?
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    How sad to see the Palinistas try to destroy the legacy of a true American patriot in order to salvage Palin's because she was stupid enough to think Paul Revere set out to ride to warn the British that the Americans were coming.

    It's a true testament to their sycophancy.

    Re: Sarah Palin: Paul Revere's Ride to Protect the Second Amendment

    There are basically 2 possibilities here, and Palin comes off looking at least a little foolish in both. On the other hand, neither is a big deal.

    Possibility 1: She misspoke. She knew the history, and flubbed it up as she talked. No big deal, it happens to every one who speaks publicly. She only looks at all foolish in this case because she was dumb enough to make fun of Obama using a teleprompter, then shows why they are used by every sensible politician. Basically, if this is the case, I just can't be bothered enough to care. It's minor, to make a big deal out of it is to be petty.

    Possibility 2: She really doesn't understand the history she is talking about. If this is the case, she really is pretty stupid, not for not knowing her history(that is ignorance, not stupidity), but for talking in public about something she didn't know about. In the long run, if this possibility is true, I still don't care. I never figured her for being very bright, this does not change things, it has almost nothing to do with any message she is trying to present nor with any modern day issues. I and the rest of the country have more important things to worry about. Making a big deal out of this is petty.

    102 posts on this so far, and none of them change the fact that in the long and short run, this does not matter. It does not change any one's opinion of Palin. It does not matter, it is nothing. This is just like threads about Obama bowing, or the NJ Gov flying to his son's ballgame, or the first lady is getting fat, or Palin painting her bus with a flag motif, or Obama taking his wife out to eat. All those threads, bitching about all those things, where stupid. Bitching about this is just the same, stupid.

Not the same thing. At. All.
    So Obama hasn't made other mistakes? People make mistakes, it's a part of being human. I just think it's hypocritical of people to blast one person for making mistakes and not the other for purely partisan reasons. It's ridiculous.

    It would be very hard to argue that opposing that mission wasn't supporting the right to keep and bear arms.

    Looks like Sarah knows more about history than...well...just about everyone on this thread.

    But, hey, don't let historical facts get in the way of partisan hackery.
    Perhaps you could be kind enough to show at which point during this event in history, Paul Revere set out to warn the British that they would not succeed in taking away our arms? Much obliged.

    I never said he was. That's totally irrelevant to what I've been commenting on, from the git-go.

    Everyone makes mistakes and had she simply said, "oops," this would be no more than a blip, much like Obama's "57 states" gaffe. Unfortunately, this is Sarah Palin we're talking about and it seems while quitting as being governor comes somewhat easy to her, quitting from sticking to stupid does not. Instead, she doubled down on stupid and embellished her account of Paul Revere even more, injecting even more falsehoods into her original story.
