    Hey, if the Director of the Paul Revere House says so, that works for me.

    No, "the experts" do not agree. Some do, some don't. But what none of them have yet to produce is Revere saying anyhing about "arms" to the British.

    Quote from the Director, this is not saying Palin was wrong..
    "Patrick Leehey of the Paul Revere House said Revere was probably bluffing his British captors, but reluctantly conceded that it could be construed as Revere warning the British".

    Nothing in there warning the British about our arms, Palin was wrong.
    People defending Palin are doing so for no other reason that politics... and showing their own ridiculousness. The issue is the term, "warn". Revere "told" the British about the militia. Telling is not warning unless he is trying to help them. He was not trying to help them unless people are now going to argue that Revere was a traitor. Revere "told" the British in an effort to intimidate them, or "warn" them that they were messing with the wrong dudes NOT to help them, but to either get them to back or and **** off, or to intimidate them.

    Palin defenders are not getting this subtle distinction. Instead they favor defending her foolish error in a foolish fashion.

    This is what I think Palin meant, it may have not come out that way but not for one second would I think Sarah would accuse Paul Revere as being a traitor. This would go against every thing that was taught in our schools, but the left is quick to try to trip her up for any reason, so the political assassination motive goes to the left, after all it is their MO.

    Nevermind that the "left" had no clue as to what she was talking about until they looked it up.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Umm, Palin also said that Revere warned the British they weren't going to take our arms "by ringing those bells" ... Aside from the fact that Revere didn't say anything about "arms" to the British, I've yet to read an account where Revere was ringbing bells to warn them about it.

    I was quoting directly out of Paul Revere's account. And yes, the Brits were after the leaders and the armaments.
