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.
    In my estimation, there's a bit of a difference between a brain fart and Palin not only completely fracturing the Revere story, but then digging her heels in on it. As I've stated elsewhere; there's something to be said for having enough grace and maturity to own your own.

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

    Dr_Patrick, I think a sizable of flak Palin is getting isn't due to the fact she flubbed the first time. It's that she's trying to argue she's right on the basis of a document that in virtually no way supports what she stated. Last I checked, Obama never tried to defend a stupid statement he made by citing a document that didn't support his argument. Revere's letter basically in no way supports Palin's argument. So it's not that she screwed up the first time. It's that she trying to defend her screw up by citing a document that doesn't support her screw up. If Palin just admitted she was wrong, this hardly would have gained this level of attention. Screwing up your defense of a screw up just magnifies things.

    From what I've seen, it's more that Palin's supporters are digging their heels in rather than her, unless I've missed her response. Regardless, it's understandable considering that nobody likes to look like an idiot. Some people own up to their mistakes and others don't. Note: I'm saying it's understandable, not saying it's excusable.

    But the basics were right. Almost. She said P.R. was warning the Brits by making the noise, ringing the bells, sounding the warning shots. They were being warned that we would remain free. Still, she is not a good storyteller.

    Well...technically the Colonists did consider themselves British. So he and the other riders were warning the British. Just not the British Palin was talking about.

    The real issue as I see it is that Palin has something more than a track record of mangling history, geography and a few other topics. Her lack of depth in so many areas defines her. She is consistently "off". That is the difference. Everyone has a bad day. God knows, traveling all around the nation in the It's All About Me bus can be tough, even for a narcissist. No one is perfect. Palin is, however, consistently over her head - even on trifling things. It is the rule, not the exception with her.

    In that case then Paul Revere would have raced through the streets screaming, "I'm coming! I'm coming."

    No, I meant it that way.
