    Doesn't matter, I got the message that Palin was trying to say, addlibbed or otherwise, if you can recite the Gettysburg address verbally and verbatim then you have a leg to stand on with your complaint not to mention I would be impressed. All I can say is feel the hate, embrace it and let it flow through your veins and you will feel the power of the left.

    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.

    And still, Revere said nothing to them about "arms." Keep tryin'!

    Awww, a Conservative gets frustrated with Liberals and starts hurling insults.
    That's about as predictable as Sarah Palin sticking her foot in her mouth again.

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

    Check this out...

    One of her dimwitted supporters actually tried to edit the Paul Revere Wiki page over the weekend.

    Sarah Palin's Paul Revere Wikipedia rewrite: who writes history again?

    (CBS/What's Trending) - They say if you don't like the topic, change the conversation. Or, "If you don't like your favorite political figure getting roasted by the news media for failing to describe Paul Revere's historic nighttime ride, change the facts on Revere's Wikipedia page." That's just what Sarah Palin supporters did over the weekend apparently, after Palin took flack for stating that Revere "warned the British" on that famous night.

    As the heat started to build, intrepid historians apparently attempted to add the following line (in italics) to Revere's Wikipedia page:

    "Revere did not shout the phrase later attributed to him ('The British are coming!'), largely because the mission depended on secrecy and the countryside was filled with british army patrols; also, most colonial residents at the time considered themselves British as they were all legally British subjects."
    Whenever I hear a story like this... I feel like Jerry Seinfeld: "Who are these people? Who are these people that support Sarah Palin?"

    Nope. A Conservative second and a Realist first. A liberal/retarded thing to do is to attack like you just did without a constructive argument. Good job.

    Seriously? You think this is about hate? Does that mean that all of the Conservatives who poke fun at Obama's gaffe do so because they hate him?

    Just so ya know, I do it cause it's hysterical .... almost as funny as the defense mounted by the Palin cultists.

    Yeah... and hurt too.

    Actually, after having the BPD wife that I did, not much really bothers me.

    "Could be construed?" So she's actually a history professor with her own perfectly valid, if not widely accepted, interpretation? Show us the PhD! The long form PhD, if you don't mind.

    Look, she made a mistake. She misspoke. But can we be adults and say that? No we get "Could be construed as." Just say she made a mistake and move on. Your defenses of her are freakin' hilarious. If she was a Liberal, your attacks would be the same as the attacks on her. BOTH WOULD DESERVE IT!
