    Essentially. So she did not get it right then. The part that people are focusing on, she got wrong. The rest is right though... and what is even more bizarre is how you equate being right or wrong with being liberal or conservative.

    Fascinating...

    For your information, blinders are for people that don't see the truth. From where I am sitting, you are just as blinded as the "liberals" that you keep attacking, though less than apstd, perhaps.

    FALSE AGAIN.

    Don't confuse semantics with FACTS. You make your argument look stupid.
    Yes. You DO make your argument look stupid.

    Paul Revere - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Revere, Dawes, and Prescott were detained by a British Army patrol in Lincoln at a roadblock on the way to Concord.[27] Prescott jumped his horse over a wall and escaped into the woods; he eventually reached Concord. Dawes also escaped, though he fell off his horse not long after and did not complete the ride.[34][35]

    Revere was captured and questioned by the British soldiers at gunpoint. He told them of the army's movement from Boston, and that British army troops would be in some danger if they approached Lexington, because of the large number of hostile militia gathered there. Everything Revere told his British captors had a single goal, to move the soldiers away from Lexington, where he had left Hancock and Adams.

    Revere had reason to believe the patrol's mission was to arrest the two Patriot leaders. He and other captives taken by the patrol were still escorted east toward Lexington, until about a half mile from Lexington they heard a gunshot. The British major demanded Revere explain the shot, and Revere replied it was a signal to "alarm the Country". A few minutes later came a flurry of shots that seemed to alarm the British captors even beyond the panic they were already in. As the group drew closer to Lexington, the town bell began to clang rapidly, to which one of the captives proclaimed to the British soldiers "The bell's a'ringing! The town's alarmed, and you're all dead men!" The British soldiers gathered and decided not to press further towards Lexington, to instead free the prisoners and to head back to warn their commanders

    What is the last part of his name again... pretty much tells it all. Why bother? It is obvious that she made a mistake. THAT doesn't make her a moron. It is the gambit of other mistakes that she makes that indicate that she is a well coached moron.

    Fortunately that is not likely to happen.

    I have not been attacking. But I have been observing. Personally, I think you are kooky. In the big picture it doesn't matter. You will have your opinion of Palin and mine will be changed for the better. It all works out.

    Kooky? How so?

    Attacking? Pretty obvious. Not that I care... just pointing it out. Obviously insulting people due to political lean is an attack. Obviously insulting people by stating that they are blinded by their beliefs is an attack. No biggy... just be honest about it.

    Like Palin you're doubling down on your FAIL.

    So, when you're captured and questioned by the enemy... that's considered warning them???

    And why did you put the quote by some random captive in bold? Makes no sense. Unless you didn't read the article.

    You and the rest of the Palin apologists are so desperate to have her appear not stupid, you'll stretch as far as you can to make it fit.

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

    Here is a video reenactment of Paul Revere's ride, proving that Palin was right, and all of those historians were wrong! Imagine that! Watch it for your self and see.

    Palin was right all along
    "Donald Trump is a phony, a fraud... [he's] playing the American public for suckers." Mitt Romney

    That is a reasonable question. Palin got the story essentially right. She is not a story teller. She is not an expert. This was not a big deal. Yet you want to make it one. That is kooky.

    Observation. Not an attack. I don't (necessarily) think any less of you. Well, maybe just a little.

    You are blinded by your beliefs. No doubt, so am I. :-)

    Your usual epic failure continues unabated I see...

    A few minutes later came a flurry of shots that seemed to alarm the British captors even beyond the panic they were already in. As the group drew closer to Lexington, the town bell began to clang rapidly, to which one of the captives proclaimed to the British soldiers "The bell's a'ringing!

    By the time this happened, the questioning by the enemy had obviously ended. unless interrogations were conducted while mounted and riding through the town :@hazlnut

    My 'support' for Palin is tepid at best. I just like make you and the other haters look foolish.
