    So no, you are in no position to claim, "So far, all the documentation available swings in Palin's favor."

    You are also in no position since she claimed Revere warned the British "by ringing those bells", which he didn't; and she said he warned them they would not be taking our arms when in Revere's own account (the only documented evidence), he told them 500 Americans were on their way; and she said "part of his ride was to warn the British," when that was not to be part of his ride. His ride was to avoid the British.

    You and your people are making this a huge issue, in case you didn't realize it.
    If you just said, "ooops" with a little chuckle and she revised her statement, the issue would be over,
    Because guess what? We all make mistakes and nobody cares enough to harp on it... maturity will reach you soon, I hope.
    I'm not spinning anything. I'm only presenting the historical facts.

    An author, who is outnumbered by other historians. An author, does not an historian make.

    She never said he warned the British by ringing bells. Why do you keep distorting her comments?

    Outnumbered? You said, "So far, all the documentation available swings in Palin's favor." Well here's a book on the subject matter which doesn't, so you're wrong on that account too.

    I'm posting her quote verbatim, it's what she said. I can't help you can't understand what she said, but that goes a long way to explaining why you think she was right.
    "He who warned the British that they weren't going to be taking away our arms BY ringing those bells"
    Exactly what do you think she meant when she said he warned the British "by ringing those bells?"

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

    This thread has me wondering:

    What would have happened had Obama gone on TV after his famous quote about 57 states, and claimed he was right?
    What if his supporters had tried to twist geography to make an extra 7 states?

    Would the USA today actually have 57 states? We'd then have to have 114 senators.

    It would be a valid question if it wasn't for the fact that O'Bama was wrong and Palin was right.

    Pathetic... look at you in the end. Nothing. Yerbuti makes a valid point and you just ignore it. A lame teenager move.

    Quoting someone verbatim is , is it?

    Also, I noticed you refused to answer my question ...
    Exactly what do you think she meant when she said he warned the British "by ringing those bells?"
    ... seems to me you don't want to answer it since, at the very least, you realize the [actual] answer destroys your position.

    Sara needs to grow up. She doesn't have to prove she's been reading up to talk smart on TV, all the time. She looked like an idiot, moreso than ever, on the Paul Revere thing. SHUT UP, SARA.
