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

    I always operate under the thinking that if somebody thinks little of me, or whatever... they have a problem. I am about the most open and reasonable person that there is.

    You are blinded by your beliefs. No doubt, so am I. :-)
    Again, I don't really hold concrete beliefs that would blind me, when discussing politics or war or most things... makes me open and reasonable, actually.

    She claimed he warned the British by ringing bells. History says otherwise.

    And I note, you still refuse to answer this question ...

    Do you think Obama doesn't know what year it is or do you think he had a brain fart when he wrote 2008?
    That's not what she said. be careful of your own gaffes.

    You know, I just might change my position on Palin.

    If she is persuasive enough to get her followers to revise history in order to make it line up with something she has said, she should be able to convince Congress of just about anything, maybe even the need for a balanced budget. She might even be able to convince the nutters in the Middle East to stop fighting. How she has such power I can't say, but if she can be manipulated into using them for good, she could accomplish miracles. Now, if we can get her to surround herself with sane, logical, and practical people, just imagine what could result!

    I try to give everyone the benefit of the doubt. Perhaps I have confused you with someone else? She is not a storyteller or a historian. She mangled her answer. But, despite all of that, in my opinion, after reading R. Revere's memorandum, she still got it right.

    Because those people whould say Palin got it wrong, if she said that the sun rises in the east. She related the history in a manner that would require people to actually know what she was talking about, to begin with. Obivously, it was doing mach 7 over some peoples's heads.

    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.
    That's your average Libbo and all CINO's.

    You're trying to revise history to prove her wrong.

    So there you go. One mangled story. One additional voter for her in the primary.

    QUOTE:

    "He who warned uh, the British that they weren't gonna be takin' away our arms, uh by ringing those bells, and um, makin' sure as he's riding his horse through town to send those warning shots and bells that we were going to be sure and we were going to be free, and we were going to be armed."

    Even if something resembling a fact appears in there, the slaughter of the English language is enough to make any sane person question her.

    Further, if she was "right", why did she bitch about yet another "gotcha" questions - which in her terms apparently means any sentence ending with a question mark.
