    she keeps the liberals in here, talking about her... instead of out fixing the problems within their own party.

    When you take a walk down the street and step in a pile of something really foul and stinky, its hard not to notice it. Palin is that pile.

    I must re register.
    She said to warn the British that they wouldn't be taking away our arms. Which they were on their way to do. They sought to make some arrests and seize the weapons stores in Concord.

    It was a very awkward phrasing, but it's essentially correct.

    There're plenty of real reasons to rag on Palin. No need to make up ones.
    I may be wrong.

    First of all, he was not warning the British that they would not be taking away our arms. Are you honestly going to stand by that statement? Second, he was not ringing bells and shooting his gun (as far as I am aware). Paul Revere gets the most credit as a freedom rider because he was a maven of sorts. He was an influential man and he knew the most influential people in the towns he was warning personally. So while the other riders where ringing bells, shooting guns, and knocking on random doors, Paul Revere was waking up governors and people who could gather up significant forces.

    But yeah, what you said makes sense too.
    Ted Cruz is the dumbest person alive.

    You are correct. He was not. It was another patriot, and I haven't had enough coffee to go look him up.

    But look! Here she is, explaining why she was right, and screwing up again.

    “You know what, I didn’t mess up about Paul Revere,” she said. “Here is what Paul Revere did. He warned the Americans that ‘the British were coming, the British were coming’ and they were going to try to take our arms. We got to make sure that we were protecting ourselves and shoring up all of our ammunitions and our fire arms so they couldn’t take it.”

    Because as we already discovered from all our digging, he didn't actually yell "The British are coming!!" Because he was talking to people who were, at that time, British citizens.

    Too funny.

    Wasn't the phrase, "The Redcoats are coming!"?
    That's the way I remember it from elementary school.

    OMG! I believe you're right! Now that you mention it. Now, the research I've been doing since she made her Paul Revere statement says two different things. I think because many things were happening that night, there's some degree of confusion. One, he would not be wanting to draw attention to himself, as this was a covert operation. I assume it stopped being covert whenever he was in a town (but not sure this was even him, as he was taken hostage by the redcoats ), and two, there was bell ringing and shots being fired - but again, not by him. I mean, really; anyway you look at it, she screwed up. Twice. Once in the first video, and again when she defended her first statement.
