    If Governor Palin relaxed and stopped worrying about what people thought about her, this "stupid spiral," if you will, would end. Palin would disagree with my assessment, but if it were not so, this habit, then why the pattern of consistently putting her foot in her mouth?

    It certainly doesn't taste good, that foot. And eating it's not the best meal for anyone who has White House-level ambitions.

    Stop The Blame The Media Game

    In closing, Palin should not just stop thinking about what people think of her, but stop blaming the media for whatever stupid comment she makes. In the most recent case, Palin said it was a "gotcha" question. But how the hell can that be if the question was an opened ended one, asking how the day went?

    That's a sure sign there's something wrong with Governor Palin. She's done this before, and the act is fading, fast.
    And yeah, I realize this is just a blogger. But we're all just people, and at least half of us can see that she could have ended it all the next day if she'd just said "ewps" (which is how we Northerners pronounce it).

    He has to make crap up in order to make Palin right -- and then he has the audacity to challenge other to prove Palin got it wrong.

    Palin is the mascot of the Tea Party. That's it.

    In order to prevent the British from taking the arms in Concord (which they already knew about and were on their way there to 'acquire'), it is not REQUIRED that the words 'HEY, DON'T TAKE OUR ARMS!' be used. Misdirecting them or telling them 'you're all dead men' or' there are 500 militia men waiting for you there' was sufficient.

    You have a stick up your ass about Revere not using the words YOU think would have been appropriate. Too ****ing bad.

    Palin's Paul Revere Flub Joins Parade of Misstatements

    COMMENTARY | Though Sarah Palin blamed a member of the lame-stream media for trapping her with a "gotcha question" (the reporter slyly asked, "What have you seen so far today, and what are you going to take away from your visit?"), according to Mediaite, Palin put her peep-toe pumps in her mouth again this week with a bungled version of Paul Revere's historic ride.

    Instead of the story we all learned in high school about Revere riding on horseback to warn his fellow colonists the British were going to attack, CBS News reports Palin's Tea Party version is that Revere was warning the British the colonists were armed and they better not mess with us.

    Palin's recent re-writing of American history is not the first time the potential presidential contender has played fast and loose with the facts. The ex-governor from Alaska has a history of making stuff up, using her lively imagination as putty to fill gaps in her knowledge. Here are just a few examples of Palin's crafty creativity:

    Sputnik Caused the Soviet Union to Sputter:

    When President Barack Obama referred to a "Sputnik moment" during his State of the Union address in January, he meant it was an opportune time for the United States to invest in new technologies, such as clean energy. Palin, however, told Greta van Susteren of Fox News that Obama was heading down the wrong path since the high cost of Sputnik bankrupted the Soviet Union, according to ABC News. (Palin just got a tad confused here. It was the arms race in the '80s that emptied the Soviet bank account.)

    The Vice President Is the Boss of the Senate:

    Perhaps a tad anxious about being demoted from head honcho of Alaska to junior president, Palin embellished the veep role by telling a Colorado TV reporter that vice presidents were not only "in charge of the United States Senate," but they could also "get in there with the senators and make a lot of good policy changes," reports the San Francisco Chronicle. Only problem is the vice president doesn't really make legal sausage with the senators and only votes to break a tie.

    George Washington Said the Pledge of Allegiance:

    In a questionnaire she filled out for her campaign for governor of Alaska in 2006, Palin was asked if she was offended by the phrase "Under G-d" in the Pledge of Allegiance. She responded, according to the Huffington Post: "Not on your life. If it was good enough for the founding fathers, its good enough for me and I'll fight in defense of our Pledge of Allegiance." Only problem was the Pledge of Allegiance was written in 1892, when all the founding fathers were dead, and the original version did not include the phrase "under G-d."

    Yes. I am completely convinced posters like Sheik Yerbuti would have instantly gotten over it and we'd not STILL be discussing it, instead of the real problems with government today.

    Do you really think it is a big deal that she is not a storyteller? Is your life so shallow that this is its finest hour?
    How well would you have done in the essentials of the story as outline by P. Revere in his memorandum?

    Jesus, did anyone ever tell you that you're a complete dick? Yes, you are whining about context but there is nothing to take out of context. She thought that Paul Revere shot off guns and rang bells, while telling the British that they could not take away the colonist's arms. Sorry if you are angry about it.

    By the way, if you want to call people stupid, you may not want to be off topic while you are doing it. How can her quote be "out of context" when Fox News (of all stations) called her out on it being completely wrong, and she still sat there and rewrote history to defend it?

    You crack me up man. So angry at all times for no reason, but that's no excuse for being a dick.
