    Palin, a paid Fox News contributor, told "Fox News Sunday" that she was correct. She says there were British soldiers in the area for years before Revere's legendary ride, and that he was warning them, as well as his fellow colonists.

    "Part of his ride was to warn the British that were already there that 'hey, you're not going to take American arms, you are not going to beat our own well-armed persons individual private militia that we have.'"

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

    This is an exact transcription of what she said:

    "He who warned, uh, the - the British that they weren’t going to be taking away our arms, uh, by ringing those bells and, and um, making sure as he’s riding his horse through town to send those warning shots and bells that we were going to be secure and we were going to be free and we were going to be armed."



    This video leaves off the bold bit, but she did say it.

    They'll never hang themselves... they're in denial. Polarized denial. It's clinical... Just like you can't convince the guy who's in the mental institution he's NOT Julius Ceasar. Even when you prove it to him he still won't believe you.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d 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.

    It's an ironic statement to make. When if fact her words are out there for all to see. She is not 100% correct in her statement, as it was not an intended purpose of Revere's mission to warn the British. I don't know, it's there to see. You can pretend it's not, but it doesn't change reality. More so than her slip up; I find fascinating the blind and rabid defense in the face of measured reality.

    I hate it for ya, but even with a poor delivery, she nailed it.

    Let's break it down:

    "He who warned, uh, the - the British that they weren’t going to be taking away our arms,
    During his ride, he was detained by a British detachment and he did, in fact, warn them against trying to tangle with the colonist militia.

    uh, by ringing those bells and, and um, making sure as he’s riding his horse through town to send those warning shots and bells that we were going to be secure and we were going to be free and we were going to be armed."
    He was reminding the locals to ring the church bells and fire rifle shots in the air, as part of the predesignated warnings. Bells were ringing and warning shots were being fired all over the countryside by this time.

    I don't know why ya'll sre having such a problem, here. Partisan hackery, perhaps?

    BTW, Ikari, you may notice that her actual words don't exactly match what you've been posting as, her actual words.

    LOL... I remember how she compared herself to Shakespeare, "because he made up words too," but she didn't mention that Snoop Dog and Flava Flav make up words too.

    A "gotcha" question? What was the question that she was asked that was so difficult for her to answer?

    Yeah, but there are few out there that are worth saving and it's or duty as Americans to stand in the gap, for them.

    She isn't 100% right.... The only way you can make it seem like she is, is if she slice and dice her quotes and ignore it all as a whole. she was lost. She was wrong, and she's a human. Some humans freeze up and don't say the brightest things under pressure. It doesn't ALWAYS mean the person is stupid.
