    Why are you making **** up if Palin was right?

    And the spot the were at was not in Concord where the Colonists' weapons were. He wasn't talking about weapons, nor would he. He would have to be a traitor to inform the British where there weapons were stored. Why are you Conservatives so willing to paint a true patriot like Paul Revere as a traitor just so you can make Palin appear slightly less of an idiot like she did when she mangled his heroic legend?
    It was already known by the British that the weapons were cached in Concord...


    Fighting at Lexington and Conco
    In April 1775, British General Thomas Gage was the new Governor of Massachusetts. He had heard that the Patriots had secretly stored weapons in the town of Concord. He had also heard that John Hancock and Samuel Adams, two leaders of the Sons of Liberty, were in Lexington. General Gage sent 700 British soldiers to find the weapons and arrest the two Patriot leaders.
    The British soldiers then marched on to Concord. The British had expected to find the Patriot weapons in Concord, but the Patriots had moved them

    I don't need this to know how stupid Palin is. Regardless, what he said was never a point of the mission. The initial comments made it seem as if it was and made it seem as if this were more an analogy to our current 2nd amanedment debates.



    It's called context, for those who don't wish to be so partisan to be blind about it.



    I think the biggest problem is that there are a lot of blind partisan folk out there unwilling to accept criticism of the people they endorse and thus make long, drawn out defenses which don't address the original context as to distract from the underlying issue of something being said which isn't fully true. But whatever, take your pick.
    So, in the face of overwhelming evidence, you're so hung up on hating Sarah, that you're going to argue with a fence post? Got it!

    No, part of his ride was not to warn the British. She got that wrong too and her acolytes simply can't accept that.
    what part of 'she badly flubbed the telling...' do you have the complete inability to comprehend? You are willfuly being thick here

    You need to seriously get a grip.
    Doesn't matter, he never said it. You even quoted him. You even put words in his mouth he didn't say. How the hell could he have warned them they would not take the Colonists' arms when he never said that?? Now you're making **** up to make Palin right.

    And what word did you think he said when you thought he said, "cache?"

    WOW!!!

    You really have no f'n clue what she said, do??

    You really have no business defending her when you don't even know what she said.o

    "Part of his ride was to warn the British that we we're already there, that hey, you’re not going to succeed." ~ Sarah Palin.

    No part of his ride was to warn the British about anything. His ride was to avoid the British. Only when he got caught did he inform them that 500 Americans were on their way.

    You just can't bring yourself to admitted she was wrong, can you?

    Palin, a paid Fox News contributor, told "Fox News Sunday" that she was correct. She says there were British soldiers in the area for years before Revere's legendary ride, and that he was warning them, as well as his fellow colonists.

    "Part of his ride was to warn the British that were already there that 'hey, you're not going to take American arms, you are not going to beat our own well-armed persons individual private militia that we have.'"

    She blamed her previous answer on the media, saying it was a "gotcha question."

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

    I can't believe people are still arguing this.

    I don't know whether to admire or pity apdst for sticking to his version of what happened even in the face of the evidence presented to him repeatedly. It must be a pride thing.

    Regardless, this whole thing is a non-issue. She flubbed the story of Paul Revere. Lets all move on. Sarah Palin is a human being and human beings **** up sometimes. Just because she ****ed up in this particular instance doesn't mean that she's not smart or that the people who point it out somehow hate her.

    I find it ironic that some of the people here get just as outraged when Obama flubs up and they turn it into a huge issue. The problem here is that it could have ended if Sarah Palin had just admitted on Fox News that she ****ed up when she was asked about it. However, she chose to claim that she didn't make any mistake at all, and now it keeps going. It would be like Obama claiming that he didn't make a mistake with the 2008 date thing and that this isn't actually 2011.

    Please, for the love of god can we move on?

    Yeah, I thought that was hilarious. How exactly was that a "gotcha question"?
