From memory, didn't she say P. Revere was warning the Brits by making noise, ringing bells, firing warning shots that they were not going to take our arms? In some sense that is what happened. The approaching Brits were warned that they would not come unopposed to arrest the rebel leaders and discover the hidden powder and shot.
The very nice part is that through my interactions with everyone here I have refreshed my memory of poorly taught history. I am even rereading a pile of books I have on K. Marx and F. Engels. Everyone keeps me on my toes. Not a bad thing for a "just now getting out of shape" middle-aged guy near 60.
6.3.2011: "He who warned, uh, the British that they weren’t going to be taking away our arms..."
6.5.2011: "he warned the Americans that the British were coming, the British were coming, and they were going to try to take our arms..."

IIRC, there is a Raul Revere Society (googling... Michael Savage). Yes, that's it. She wants those fringies. I hope all of you are proud. You're all winners.

So what we have here so far is a 16 page thread designed to sink Palin's campaign. The left likely hopes that their posts will be read by the public, who will not vote for Palin (has she even announced a run?). When you have a thread this long about a misspeak, it says more about the opposition than anyone else. Come on folks, how much does your messiah know about this very topic without a chance to read. So Revere told the British something, didn't he? So Palin misspoke about it, and THEREFORE does not deserve to be President.
