    Apdst...I dont know man...seriously...this happens enough that she either is just that stupid or she doesnt learn from her past mistakes. Either option does not bode well for a potential presidential candidate.

    apdst does have a point about the issue being somewhat related to protecting their ability to wield weapons. Although it isn't really about defending their right to keep and bear arms so much as it was about defending their ability to wage a rebelling against the crown.

    It was more military strategy rather than attempted political oppression. The British were aware that a rebellion was mounting, and that the rebels had a weapons stash in Concord

    Seems like a bigger mistake than simply saying "fifty" instead fo "forty". She said it twice and they weren't single word mistakes. It could be that she mispoke, though.

    She kinda does have a deer in headlights look about her when she gets asked some fairly simple questions, doesn't she? Maybe it's a side-effect of beauty pageant training.

    Thats what I'm sayin. She should have gone of to the mountains, studied with some political Guru, learned basic Q and A skills. Look, MOST politicians are like this early in their careers. It takes a while to become a 'statesman.' Thats kind of her problem. She is attractive, she has charisma, she ahs many of the tools she would need...she just comes across like a doofus any time she has to answer a question.

    It was more accurately military strategy rather than attempted political oppression. The British were aware that a rebellion was mounting, and that the rebels had a weapons stash in Concord

    Actually, it wasn't about putting down a rebelling--mispeak perhaps?--as much as it was about disarming the local militia to prevent an uprising. It wasn't until the next day that the Brits found out that they were dealing with a full blown armed revolution.

    It is an historical fact, that on 18 April, 1775, the British mission was to disarm the rebels. On 19 April, they figgered out that the fit had hit the shan. If the British had a single clue that they were walking into a real live firefight, they would have made sure they weren't outnumbered 2 to 1. The British tactical doctrine of the period was to meet force with overwhelming force. They were, by then, experts at using economy of force. Their being caught off gaurd explains where there wasn't any cavalry present at Lexington, nor Concord.

    On April 14, 1775, Gage received instructions from Secretary of State William Legge, Earl of Dartmouth, to disarm the rebels, who were known to have hidden weapons in Concord, among other locations, and to imprison the rebellion's leaders, especially Samuel Adams and John Hancock. Dartmouth gave Gage considerable discretion in his commands.

    The Palin Apologists Strike Back! - Rick Ungar - The Policy Page - Forbes

    Giving the Governor the benefit of the doubt, I suspect what Palin has done is take the story of Israel Bissell and garble it up with the Paul Revere adventure to come up with the imagery that would bolster her point.

    Bissell is an unsung hero of the Revolutionary War who, independent of Paul Revere, had been sent to warn the colonists that the war had begun. Bissell accomplished his mission by riding into towns, ringing the church bell and firing his musket to get the attention of the residents so that he could pass along his message.
