    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?
    Exactly. Just "Misspoke, meant to say..blah". Lots of people misspeak, it's not a big deal. Now Palin seems to have a knack for it; but whatever. The rabid defense is a bit annoying though because in the political process we should all engage in clear, fair analysis of the candidates (or possible candidates) in order to gauge their ability to do the job. If you just go the blind partisan route, you'll endorse someone who probably shouldn't be. Or at the very least, someone who can be replaced with someone better.

    Show us your evidence! Make sure you include the historical docs to go along with it.

    Does she claim that a lot? I'm not sure. I don't know if she claimed something similar for the "what newspapers do you read" and other classic Palin moments.

    Already done through out the thread. She claimed it was part of his ride, it clearly was not part of his ride to warn the British; rather what he said to them was reactionary after he was captured. Less you wish to dispute that. In which case, include the historical docs which show that it was the intended purpose of Revere's ride to warn the British.

    I've heard her make that claim a few times in the past when she's ****ed up. It just seems like a cop out. I believe the question that she was asked was something along the lines of "What are you doing here?" I don't know how that could ever be considered a gotcha question, but whatever.

    Ok, well, point it out to me, because I've yet to see anyone prove her wrong.

    It's been shown that she claimed it was part of his ride. Thus the rest of the quote kicks in. If you want to say she was 100% right, then perhaps you can include the historical docs which show that it was the intended purpose of Revere's ride to warn the British. Can you?

    How would you know? You don't even know what she said!

    No, part of his ride was not to warn the British. She got that wrong too and her acolytes simply can't accept that.

    Where did she say, "it was part of his ride"?
    Oh, my.

    Yes, I do, which is why I don't understand you still arguing. She made a mistake. Nor is there any indication she even understood the difference in what she said and what the actual history was. But regardless, all she had to do was say she got it a bit tangled, and then clarify, and I think this would be over. I'd certainly buy it. But to say she got it right was a furthering of her 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.

    Right, that is what you just did. Your quote does not say that he warned them, only that he told them. Hence my initial assertion that it is a terminology issue...
