    When Palin speaks without notes or add libs, this is the **** you get...
    The idiots are the liberals that say she is wrong when historians say she is right.

    Historians agree: Palin was right about Paul Revere

    It is an historical fact, that on 18 April, 1775, the British mission was to disarm the rebels. On 19 April, they figgered out that the fit had hit the shan. If the British had a single clue that they were walking into a real live firefight, they would have made sure they weren't outnumbered 2 to 1. The British tactical doctrine of the period was to meet force with overwhelming force. They were, by then, experts at using economy of force. Their being caught off gaurd explains where there wasn't any cavalry present at Lexington, nor Concord.
    You're changing the subject... Palin wasn't saying **** about the British or their intentions. She was discussing Revere and his motives and goals.

    Honestly, I am not even a history buff and I knew that Paul Revere was not ringing bells and shooting his rifle. Most of my knowledge (past grade school knowledge) of his ride comes the book "Tipping Point" where Malcolm Gladwell discusses how Paul Revere was more successful than his comrades because he was a "connector", in that he knew LOTS of influential people. So while the other riders were just going around ringing bells and yelling about the red coats, Revere was knocking on the doors of people who could actually make a difference.

    Palin, uhh, clearly was not aware of any of that. She clearly had a cartoonish picture of the event where Revere shot his guns and rang bells and all of the "patriotic Americans" were roused from bed and went to fight the evil British.

    Again, this has nothing to do with whatever you argue that the British were doing. Her statement was about Revere and his motives.

    "First off, Revere’s mission took place at the behest of Dr. Joseph Warren, a Boston leader of the revolutionary cause, for the purpose of warning Samuel Adams and John Hancock – who were staying at the Hancock home – that the British soliders were likely coming to arrest them and that they would do well to get out of the house before they were taken.

    Further, while it is absolutely true that the British did have their eye on the gunpowder stockpiles at Concord, Revere’s mission had absolutely zero to do with this. He was all about getting to Adams and Hancock while passing the word along the way of the coming arrival of the British Regulars. Thus, using this bit of history to find some basis in Palin’s remark that, “He who warned the British that they weren’t going to be taking away our arms….” is as absurd as the original statement and only serves to further highlight the same."

    No they don't. That site is bull****. There were two separate occasions with Revere ptif. Once when he went to warn the revolutionaries that the British were planning to arrest them, and another time when he was arrested by the British and he told them that the revolutionaries were armed and ready to fight. The part about the British wanting to take away their arms was wrong.

    Why is it so hard for some people to admit Palin says some dumb **** sometimes? She doesn't have a chance to be president, so I don't know why they are fighting for her... lol

    Because they believe in an idealized notion of the USA where people never committed genocide (American Indians) nor the government endorsed slavery and we are all good little followers of the Christian religion.
