    That's not what she said. You're taking her comment out of context.

    Because it's Sara Palin.

    Just like the 6 or so years of Bush Syndrome... it's a mental illness.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    So, you deny that her detractors are so gun ho against her that they will avail themselves of any and all opportunities to attack her in any way they can? That her detractors would never stoop to say, going after her family members? Things like that?

    That's the most hillarious post on this thread, so far. I bet you don't even realize your error.

    And, you want to accuse an actual historian of spinning the truth?

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

    What? Can you not read? Is that what this is about. It's been posted, it is verified, that is what she said. Fact of the matter is, Paul Revere was not out ringing bells, shooting guns, nor purposefully warning the British as part of his mission. The fact of the matter is that she said that it was part of his mission. Jesus.

    I don't know if it's so much that they're so gun ho about going out there and "getting" her, or if it's just because it drops in their laps all the time. Other politicians don't seem to have as many problems with this. So it's either everybody but her, or it's her.

    Other politicians didn't have the unmitigated gall to dare oppose the Chosen One in some fashion, remember?

    Looks like she got it right, because that's what happened when, on part of his ride, he was detained by a British detachment and at that time, he warned them against attempting to disarm the militia. Shall I post his letter, again?

    First, it would be shoot, not shot.

    Second, you are otherwise factually inaccurate.

    Israel Bissell - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Nothing here about Israel ringing any bells, or shooting a gun.

    Dude, this is not a conspiracy or anything. People aren't out to get Palin. She does this herself. At some point she should at least learn to control what she says. On some front, it's almost like watching a train wreck, and no one looks away from those.
