    I don't believe that is the case concerning those who know she made a mistake. But I asked about context, in what context are we missing that makes her mistake not a mistake?

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    No matter how many times you repeat that, it's not what she said. The first step would be for you to actually understand the history, then address her comments. I know that's too much to ask, though.

    She never said, "he warned the British by ringing those bells".

    If you quoted the entire answer he gave, you'd have your answer. But from the link he responded to:

    Sarah Palin's much-ridiculed story of Paul Revere isn't entirely wrong, but it's badly twisted. Revere didn't ring bells or fire shots, and he was riding to warn two fellow rebels that the British were coming to arrest them, not to warn the British "that they weren't going to be taking away our arms."

    More from the same article:

    So how does Palin's version compare with, say, Paul Revere's? Not very well.

    So, while you can link somethings that happened, after was caught for example, it was not his purpose, and she is factually wrong overall.

    Revere was captured, at which time he warned the British not to attempt to confiscate the arms that the militia had stockpiled.

    Post your next misconception so I can clear that up, too.

    Yes, but that isn't what she said. She said that is what his ride was about, what his purpose was. It wasn't.

    Do read what I wrote again. You seem to misunderstand it.

    Again, here are her exact words, verbatim ...
    "He who warned the British that they weren't going to be taking away our arms BY ringing those bells"
    Don't believe me? Listen for yourself ... YouTube - ‪Sarah Palin: Paul Revere Warned The British‬‏

    ... what do you think she meant by that?

    Would you mind quoting him saying that? Shouldn't be hard since he wrote about his adventure in several letters and never, ever, said that.

    No, that's not what she said. You just didn't know enough about the history of the period to understand what she was talking about. Now that you do, you can't bring yourself to admit that she didn't cock it up, as much as you say.
