    Every time we have a poll about gaffes in general everyone always says "Ya gaffes are gaffes, they just happen sometimes" but the second you change it from a vague generality and a specific person, there are no gaffes there is only excuses and claims of absolute proof someone is stupid.

    Except.... its neither, its just a damn gaffe.

    Yeah. Except, uh... this wasn't a gaffe and it made all her haters look stupid and uneducated.

    I guess that goes for her supporters here then, I mean if what she said was true, which as far as I can see so far hasn't been sourced, why did it take a few days and a blogger to expose the "truth." Surely if it was something any educated and non-stupid person would know, then why didn't any of her supporters here at DP jump forward with this information right away? Or is it more likely none of you considered it until the first topic claim she was right all along popped up, citing some blog no less. I guess none of us knows our history then?

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

    Basically it comes down to this all, all the sources brought forward to support Palin have said Revere was captured by the Britsh and warned them that the local militia was forming up. Ok fine, I accept that. However what Palin said was that he warned them they wouldnt be taking away our arms. Fine, but the two statements aren't the same, they don't convey the same information. Telling someone "Hey there's militia over there" is not the same as saying a defiant statement of "You'll never take our weapons!"

    Or are they the same statement in your eyes?

    Or is it more likely she just had a brain fart?

    They don't look stupid and uneducated because they didn't know history. Hell, I didn't know there was anything about bells, or mis-direction of the brits (warning them to stay away from lexington),or him being captured or them trying to seize arms. All I knew is he said "The British are coming". Hopefully, that's still true. Anyway...

    They look stupid because they jumped on her, as usual; and, it turns out she was reasonably based in reality.

    Really, one must admit she's taught us all about Paul Revere. Some people showed ass in the process, but that's fun too.

    Ok if thats your opinion tell me your thought process which led you to conclude that "There are militia forming here" is the same statement as "You'll never take our guns." Thats what it all boils down to, we know what she said and we know what the source said, the disagreement is over if they mean the same thing, because if they dont she was wrong and if they do she was right. Thats the fundamental question to all of this, so you must think they were the same or at least similar enough so that a little rephrasing would still convey the same message. So tell me why you think they are the same or at lest similar.

    Personally I think they are totally different, but I think she was wrong just due to a simple gaffe, and I don't think she's stupid or uneducated because of this. I think she's unqualified to be President or hold any political office, but that opinion doesn't stem from this little gaffe, neither does this gaffe re-inforce that opinion in me in any way, its totally irrelevant to anything as far as I'm concerned.

    He told them that the militia were forming there so that they would not take the guns (and capture a couple dudes). That's good enough for me.

    Maybe I don't care enough, but I probably do.
    You go ahead and care more, it's all you.

    Fair enough. I realize its just an opinion, I can't prove one statement is similar or not, similarity is just a relative opinion. Now I don't really care about this gaffe, I thought that was clear but hey the fact you didn't realize it is just more proof that similarity is relative, since I thought it was obviously inferred from my statements. That's not meant to be insulting at all.

    I just got involved here because I saw what I considered a denial of reality on many people's part that this statement by Palin was anything more than a brain fart, that denial of reality includes both her haters who think its absolute evidence she's retarded and her supporters who claim she was dead on the money and everyone else is an idiot. Basically we are all stupid for making such a mountain of a topic out of what originally was a 30 second or so clip.
