    Obviously Palin didn't write this on her hand before she said it.

    So, in a way, he was warning the British, as the rebels were British, too. There you go, Palin supporters, an interpretation of her words that doesn't make her out to be a total loon.

    She isn't a total loon, after all. Some parts are missing.
    No, you're wrong, the mission was secret - it was done at midnight.

    Here is the real story from The Paul Revere House,
    On the evening of April 18, 1775, Paul Revere was sent for by Dr. Joseph Warren and instructed to ride to Lexington, Massachusetts, to warn Samuel Adams and John Hancock that British troops were marching to arrest them. After being rowed across the Charles River to Charlestown by two associates, Paul Revere borrowed a horse from his friend Deacon John Larkin. While in Charlestown, he verified that the local “Sons of Liberty” committee had seen his pre-arranged signals. (Two lanterns had been hung briefly in the bell-tower of Christ Church in Boston, indicating that troops would row “by sea” across the Charles River to Cambridge, rather than marching “by land” out Boston Neck. Revere had arranged for these signals the previous weekend, as he was afraid that he might be prevented from leaving Boston).

    On the way to Lexington, Revere “alarmed” the country-side, stopping at each house, and arrived in Lexington about midnight. As he approached the house where Adams and Hancock were staying, a sentry asked that he not make so much noise. “Noise!” cried Revere, “You’ll have noise enough before long. The regulars are coming out!” After delivering his message, Revere was joined by a second rider, William Dawes, who had been sent on the same errand by a different route. Deciding on their own to continue on to Concord, Massachusetts, where weapons and supplies were hidden, Revere and Dawes were joined by a third rider, Dr. Samuel Prescott. Soon after, all three were arrested by a British patrol. Prescott escaped almost immediately, and Dawes soon after. Revere was held for some time and then released. Left without a horse, Revere returned to Lexington in time to witness part of the battle on the Lexington Green.

    no, no no. here is how it happened
    Palin's explanation to news "broadcaster" Chris "show me the money" Wallace: "Ya know, Chris, can I call you Chris? I was so caught up in the freedom-lovin' moment of thinkin' about my liberties that i began to speak in Bizarro language. So when I said he warned the British, it meant he warned the patriotic Americans out in their fields, growin' crops and prayin' to the lord that they might one day win their freedom from those terrible blue coats -- there, see, i did it again -- i mean red coats, which is still my favorite color because it reflects the "fire in the belly" that i have every day since i stopped for chili in a little town in Maryland to welcome tens of people to my bus tour -- i mean vacation as Piper reminds me all the time she says Maaaaaaaa all these lamestream media people are ruining our vacation and i just tell her 'Piper honey, it's okay, just put your hand in front of their evil cameras and don't let them take mommy's picture unless they give you five dollars which you will give to me later. So anyway Paul Revere's horse rode him to -- golly there i go again Chris, it must be bus lag - I mean Paul Revere rode his horse carryin' all his guns so the British wouldn't get 'em and he stopped on the way to convince a lady to have her baby rather than to end a life which is so precious (holds up picture of Trig in one hand and new book in the other) then later when they had defeated the whole British army they all danced with the stars - i mean under the stars, not like the dance competition my Bristol the Pistol would've won if the socialists hadn't blocked all the phone calls. and that's why American used to be the greatest country in the world until Obama and his kind took our freedoms and liberties away from us and i jus' wanna bring them back to the American people because of the fire in the belly I have for history and freedom. In Jesus name. Hand over my check you betcha.

    It would be very hard to argue that opposing that mission wasn't supporting the right to keep and bear arms.

    Looks like Sarah knows more about history than...well...just about everyone on this thread.

    But, hey, don't let historical facts get in the way of partisan hackery.
    He wasn't warning the British at any rate. Unless you want to include Bostonians in your definition of "British." Which I'm sure is what Palin will be claiming she meant in a day or two.

    By the way, don't let us stop you from voting for a complete idiot who served half of a term as Governor of Alaska before she ditched the people for the bigger paycheck Fox was offering. Seriously, you all want her as your candidate? Talk about handing the election to Obama on a silver platter.

    So, when O'Bama didn't even know what year we are in, did you freak out about it?

    Oh, you're not going to stop me from voting for anyone. Besides, I'm voting for Herman Cain.

    Talk about handing the election to Obama on a silver platter.
    Seriously, O'Bama's not getting re-elected. You need to learn to live with that reality.

    That's the way I remember it from elementary school.
    Believe it or not, the phrase was "The Regulars are coming", and BTW, Paul Revere was proud to be British, which is why they released him soon after arresting him.

    But if she cannot even bother to educate herself on basic things, that does not bode well.

    Palin opens her mouth and I can't help but think, "Good God woman, Alaska elected you?!!"

    Re: Sarah Palin: Paul Revere's Ride to Protect the Second Amendment

    Sarah Palin just delivered a heaping plate of irony in this latest event. It's almost a godsend, because it shows how truly hypocritical both sides are here. Many of the Liberals who forgave Obama on his 2008 gaffe are now criticizing Palin's gaffe. On the other side of the coin, many Conservatives who criticized Obama on his gaffe are now giving Palin a pass. I do, however, have to give a tiny bit of credit to the Liberals simply because they didn't try to reverse the clocks back to 2008 in an effort to make Obama right. Though, I wouldn't be surprised if they would have tried that. I also am thoroughly enjoying the irony being displayed by the hyper-partisan people on both sides for criticizing others for doing the exact thing that they are guilty of. Such as, criticizing a Liberal for defending Obama and now criticizing Palin and vice versa. It's truly amazing how many people fail to grasp the concept of irony.
