    There were no bells, he had lanterns. This was not about them taking our guns, it was about them arresting independence leaders. Why the hell are guys even trying to defend her?

It's pretty obvious she wanted to make her statement into some kind of pro Second Amendment rant, and messed it up because of that pesky immutability of the past.

    It is the spectacle of Palin supporters trying to revise history that is particularly entertaining.
    Proves she is not stupid & has an agenda!

    She's not stupid, or at least I don't think so. She's managed to make a pile of money off of keeping herself in the limelight. That takes some intelligence.

    Is her agenda to make her supporters stand reason on its head to claim she was right all along, or is it to continue to make money by drawing attention to herself?

    If it's the former, then that says something about her supporters. If the latter, then she is in a class with Lady GaGa, who is someone else who is intelligent, but shouldn't ever be in the Oval Office.

    It was about both, actually.

    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.
    I love it. All THEY know is the stupid poem and they're going to attack her for accuracy

    ....and they attack her because she's sooooo uninformed!


    and Haymarket - you claim to have taught American history: you should know better


    The well-known fable is Revere's late-night ride to warn fellow revolutionaries that....

    ...the British were coming. Less known, obviously, is the rest of the evening's events in which Revere was captured by said redcoats and did indeed defiantly warn them of the awakened militia awaiting their arrival ahead and of the American Revolution's inevitable victory.
    Palin knew this. The on-scene reporters did not and ran off like Revere to alert the world to Palin's latest mis-speak, which wasn't.

    Like a number of famous faux gaffes in American politics, the facts of the situation no longer really matter.

    The initial impression was eagerly grabbed by so many, starting with the reporter and millions of others gleefully sharing the story that reinforced their beliefs and/or desires.

    This phenomenon is actually not a new one in American politics, although its immediate spread is obviously hastened by the Internet. Speaking of which, Al Gore did not invent it. Nor did he claim to, as often as you've heard otherwise...

    A classic example of this faux faux pas was in 1992 when Vice President Dan Quayle agreed to participate in a New Jersey classroom spelling bee.

    Working from a placard, Quayle corrected one sixth-grader by telling him to add an "e" to "potato." Journalists gleefully noted the spelling misteak. And Quayle's dunce hat was glued in place.

    Trouble is, that mis-spelled placard was actually written out by the classroom teacher herself, either through her own ignorance or, a few suspect, some sly political set-up. Quayle knew he hadn't written it and thought the error was the point of the lesson.

    And because the classroom spelling bit was a last-minute addition, aides who would have foreseen the everlasting damage of their boss inexplicably adding a mistake to a student's work did not know what the placard said. Quayle subsequently forbade them from explaining the error to the media, for fear of embarrassing the teacher....

    Early in a previous race for the Republican presidential nomination almost 12 years ago, then Texas Gov. George W. Bush was in a jammed New Hampshire airport meeting room, answering questions from local media. Apropos of nothing, one reporter (perhaps prompted by an opponent's camp) asked Bush his pre-written gotcha: Name the new president of Pakistan.

    Obviously, Pervez Musharraf had nothing to do with New Hampshire issues and is similar to some Democratic candidates flubbing the name of Russia's then prime minister during 2008 debates (Dmitry Medvedev).

    Bush didn't know the Pakistani leader's name that day and looked clumsy attempting to answer. He could have brushed it away by instantly asking the reporter some arcane political who's-who, laughing off their mutual ignorance and quickly taking the next question. But he didn't and took media lumps for several days.

    As everyone now knows, such a splashy gaffe can effectively doom any chance a candidate has of winning two terms in the White House.

    When have I ever said anything about, "educated eltists"?

    I have a great idea: hows about you provide us with primary source documentation that proves this historian wrong? Take your time gathering your research. look forward to your results. As always, thanks in advance.
