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

    How do you ring a doorbell as you're riding through town?

    No. Democrats just deny, deflect or ignore. No historical facts or searching needed usually. Of course since you're speaking in generality I am as well.

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.

    WASHINGTON — Sarah Palin insisted Sunday that history was on her side when she claimed that Paul Revere's famous ride was intended to warn both British soldiers and his fellow colonists.

    "You realize that you messed up about Paul Revere, don't you?" "Fox News Sunday" anchor Chris Wallace asked the potential 2012 presidential candidate.

    "I didn't mess up about Paul Revere," replied Palin, a paid contributor to the network.

    "Part of his ride was to warn the British that were already there. That, hey, you're not going to succeed. 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 added. "He did warn the British."

    Correct. No matter how many times her comment is posted, it isn't going to change. It will never change into anything that any rational person, Republican or Democrat, can possibly support.

    She quoted the first video where Palin slipped up. I quoted what she said to clarify her statements on Fox News.

    I have her first, original quote, and Ikari has Palin's defensive, "I WAS TOO RIGHT" quote.

    Let's break it down:



    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.



    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.
    You broke the quote up... It's obvious she isn't talking about him being interrogated.

    "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."

    It's plain and simple... she thinks the purpose of his ride was to warn the British.

    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."
    It also looks like she's saying Revere rang bells and fired his gun... Now, in all honesty, she isn't stupid for saying this, because I really think it's one of those common myths that were taught in public schools for years in America... Just like teaching Columbus sailed the world to prove the world was round. We already knew the world was round... that's a myth. Betsy Ross didn't sew the first American flag, and the legend was likely started and spread by her grandson. Look it up if you don't believe me.

    Revere has always gotten more credit than Israel Bissell, and Bissell out rode Revere and even rode his horse to death.

    Some think Revere rose to fame because his name wasn't as strange as Israel Bissell's and because Revere had a catchier poem and song...

    The thing that is stupid about this situation is seeing people so eager to defend her, it's obvious what she said. Stop trying to change her words. I can forgive her, because she was probably taught Revere rode with large bells and shot a gun in elementary school... (I swear I can remember even seeing artist depictions of him heroically galloping on his horse with bells and a musket).. but I can't forgive your desperation to make her quotes look like something they are not.

    That's a gem... I mean, it sounds like she was trying to squeeze in a bunch of rehearsed ad libs with a response like that but got it all jumbled together and lost.
