    Right. If you can't trust Little Green Footballs, who can you trust? Does the story have to be backed up by the Onion?

So Revere told the British something, didn't he? So Palin misspoke about it, and THEREFORE does not deserve to be President.

    Hey, checkout what conservapedia.com has to say [this hour] about Paul Revere...
    Paul Revere (1734-1818) was a silversmith in colonial America who was very active in Boston-area revolutionary groups such as the Sons of Liberty. He is famous for riding from Boston to Lexington, Massachusetts with William Dawes on the night of April 18, 1775 ringing bells to warn the British that colonists would exercise their natural right to bear arms. This also served to warn the minutemen the British were coming. Revere was captured before he could reach Concord, but managed to escape. His midnight ride was immortalized by a poem by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.[1]

    Paul Revere - Conservapedia
    No mention of the two lanterns in the church steeple ... no mention of why Paul Revere actually rode to Lexington (to warn Samuel Adams and John Hancock that the British army was on their way to arrest them) ... but interestingly enough, it does mention somethings which did not occur; such as Paul Revere ringing bells ... or warning the British that colonists would exercise their natural right to bear arms.

    While it's amusing to see that Conservatives have their own version of history, it also serves to explain why some Conservatives like Sarah "The Quitter" Palin are so ignorant of it.

    The story was backed up by all the attempted changes on the wiki page.

    That just doesn't look good. Something about it doesn't sound healthy.

    Be wary of Palinistas on the prowl.

    So I decided to look up Palin on conservapedia and found this little historical tid bit too:

    Palin filled out a policy questionnaire for the Eagle Forum Alaska during her 2006 gubernatorial race

    <snip>

    Another question asked, "Are you offended by the phrase 'Under God' in the Pledge of Allegiance? Why or why not?" Palin replied, "Not on your life. If it was good enough for the Founding Fathers, it's good enough for me and I'll fight in defense of our Pledge of Allegiance."

    But conservapedia then tries to make it seem as though it wasn't an ignorant statement by Palin by stating a bunch of things that are not entirely accurate, but could make an idiot think that she was right when she said that.

    It's those pesky gotcha questions which make "Do you want fries with that?" seem like an SAT question that throw her off.

    It is revisionist history at its worst.

    According to conservapedia, only liberals are capable of revisionist history because if a conservative said it, time and space will invert upon themselves in order to make it true.

    Sometimes the way partisans blindly gobble up and regurgitate corporate media soundbites makes me want to jump off a cliff, or preferably push them off of one.
