    FALSE -- He was captured when he spoke to the British.

    Palin didn't know what the hell she was talking about. She's an idiot.

    when you are reduced to arguing semantics in order to make someone else look stupid, all that happens is you end up looking petty and desperate.
    Re: 2 - did he tell them by ringing bells and firing shots. WE BOTH KNOW that the answer to that is no.

    And yes. The bolded bit is true, and certainly applies to you and everyone who has been arguing for days now that she was right.

    FALSE AGAIN.

    DOUBLE FAIL.

    Unless you mean the part of his ride when he was captured...
    Exactly. He wasn't riding to tell them ANYTHING. He wouldn't have had to ride anywhere. They were right there, he just had to go find them and tell them.

    Actually, the way that sentence is phrased, it kind of looks like the British were going to be ringing bells in order to take away "our" arms and Revere explained that ringing bells wasn't an effective way to disarm a populace.

    When you look at what she said, then look at the historical facts, she's right. Historians have already pointed that out.

    Boston University history professor Brendan McConville said, “Basically when Paul Revere was stopped by the British, he did say to them, ‘Look, there is a mobilization going on that you’ll be confronting,’ and the British are aware as they’re marching down the countryside, they hear church bells ringing — she was right about that — and warning shots being fired. That’s accurate.”
    This is looking worse and worse for the Palin haters all the time.

    Please, that's not what she said. It's sad that people have to alter her words to make them correct since obviously, she flubbed.

    She did not say part of his ride "was that he warned" the British; she said, part of his ride "was to warn" the British. Not true. No part of his ride was to warn the British.
