Sarah Palin has accomplished more than Barack Obama has? I`d love to hear your thesis on that. One is currently President of the USA, the other had a reality TV show.

Please, enlighten us.

WHO CARES? Obama also said the US had 57 states but he is still president.

Yeah, um the bells and warning shots were the exaggerated specifics part. Did you not read my quote?

But the idea of sending a message to the British about the commitment of Americans to freedom, if not executed in such a dramatic fashion as described that night, I think was the gist of her anecdote. She`s trying to pump-up her base! We stuck it to the man once, we can do it again! That`s the closest I can come to interpreting her story in a rational way.

"Umm, did anyone actually listen to her? If not, read BostonKaiser comment. Her statement was clearly intended to be metaphorical, if a little exaggerated on the specifics." Metaphorical statements still need to make sense. She just kept saying "ringing those bells" and rambling incoherently. Aside from referencing, incorrectly, a historic event in U.S. history she couldn`t even get a full sentence out...

Correcting a person isn`t `bashing` them.

There were no warning shots.. Revere was unarmed. There were no warning bells, the method was to knock on doors. As for warning the British.. it was intended to be a secret mission that would escape any British notice. Kind of hard to warn someone about something if you are actively avoiding them.

It is fun to watch the teabaggers bend over backward to support her version, when everyone knows if a Democrat had said the same words they`d crucify them. So thanks, ignorant Sarah, for the entertainment.

Feh. ALL wrong. Paul Revere and William Dawes rode to Concord to warn Sam Adams to lock up the beer. "The redcoats can HAVE the damn tea!" he famously said.

So, after reading the Palin site`s spin, I guess the only correct conclusion is that both sides are right. Paul Revere did warn the British we were ready to fight, because he had ALREADY warned the volunteer militia. I might also add, he only warned them because he was stopped by a patrol. I doubt that they were one of his intended "stops".

I love how people try to divert attention with Obama`s 57 states slip (He meant 47 but was exhausted from the campaign trail). Sara is refreshed being on basically what is a family vacation. What is her excuse? Bush made so many misquotes a daily calendar was made each year. You could do the same with Sara Palin but it would just be sad.

The spin doctors are out in force on this one. It is easy to get the facts on Paul Revere. Just don`t go to the conservative spin sites that say Sarah Palin is basically right. Go to the historical sites that were already in place before Palin`s debacle.

Paul Revere warning the British that they were not going to get our guns? hahaha "Hey, British dude, I am warning you. You will not get our guns!"

she`s somewhat right (I still don`t think she has any place in politics), because, if my memory serves me right, the British were going to attack armories and take weapons. There wasn`t any bells, and Paul Revere never did make the full trip (he just got the credit for it)

"Maybe this is why she still refuses to give an open press conference(!)"

Yes, it probably is. She knows that the legacy news media are biased against her and too dumb to understand what she says, about America or about policy. This is just one example (remember "party like it`s 1773"? She really owned the media on that one). So what is in it for her?

give me a break, she was ignorant as a brick two years ago, suddenly, after a bunch of fox news and realtiy tv, you`re giving her credit for like "knowing more" about Paul Revere or something?? lol that was a simple question from the classroom with a simple classroom answer. Hey maybe in other school, they teach Paul Reveres ride as the time that rode aaaaall around... to talk to the brits... lol i`d believe that too smh

For @Burton_ian and all the Sarah haters: SHE IS CORRECT!

Revere DID warn the Redcoats, and the Redcoats WERE after citizen`s guns and ammunition.

Proof Here!

SO what does that say about the MSM? They have TWICE accused Sarah of "not knowing history" and TWICE she`s been 100% correct. Who`s the idiot? You kool-aid drinkers are!

While the MSM ignores Obama`s MANY failings, they distract you with good old-fashioned hate. Like lambs to the slaughterhouse you lefties all just blindly follow. Sad really.

@BostonKaiser - MSM stands for "mainstream media". I`d say "the MSM and leftist media" but that would be redundant!
Also: the point, you missed it.

But Megalo, you must see the irony; she is going on a trip to visit "historic landmarks that helped shape America" so you would at least expect her to know the third-grade background knowledge of said places. But i guess things like "knowledge" or "facts" are too concrete for a maverick mama bear.

"Paul Reveres ride was unsuccessful anyway the history on his ride was taken from a poem by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. Historians have since rewritten that time in history."

Exactly.
Plus, she`s only human. You might make the same mistake too if you were put on the spot like that. I understand that she knows who she is, and that she will be interviewed and be on TV, so she should watch what she says. However, she is still human.

Sarah Palin is right.

That is why Sarah Palin is so entertaining. It is not her, it is the effect she has on the haters. They get so worked up about this perfectly charming woman, irrationally angry and distressed with her perfectly liberal policies, and decide she is stupid. Then she makes them look utter idiots.

@cazalicious This was not at random question, posed at a random time. She was visiting historical Revolutionary War sites that day and the question directly references her visit Paul Revere`s home as well as the Old North Church. If she is going to visit these historical site and then seek out media interviews, the least she can do is actually spend 5 minutes to research what the hell she is visiting and why it`s relevant. It`s hardly the `gotcha` question you make it out to be.

Look, misspeaking is when, in an otherwise cogent, logical, intelligible sentence or phrase, the speaker inserts an incorrect (though often similar or easily explainable) word that has an unintended meaning. Had she only said "British" versus "Founding Fathers" or whatever politically savvy description she should have used for the colonists, that would be one thing. But, instead, she sputtered, doubled back, got a poo-eating grin on her face, and then tried to insert a talking point in a completely clumsy, ignorant and nonsensical manner in the hopes of saving her ignorance. That was not misspeaking. That was verbal diarrhea. And she does it ALL THE DAMN TIME! You want her as president, fine. But let’s not pretend that was a simple slip of the tongue. That was par for the course with her.

He did technically warn the British. We were all British citizens at the time. But the fact that she stuttered so much means that she didn`t know what she was talking about.

Sarah Palin may have gotten her facts all wrong (and I do mean all wrong) — but so does nearly everyone else.

Revere certainly didn’t ring any bells or fire any warning shots, but neither did he shout `the British are coming!` In fact, he — along with some 40 additional riders — took care not to draw too much attention to themselves as the British were practically everywhere. And the riders’ warning to patriots would not have referred to `the British`, but rather to `the Regulars`, as the British army were known.

[quote]I bet she knows how many states there are in the US. Obama said 57. [/quote]

It`s true that Obama said "57 states." He clearly was thinking "primaries.”

In the primaries there are 50 states plus D.C., Puerto Rico, Guam, U.S. Virgin Islands, the Texas caucus (someone thought it was a good idea to have both a primary and a caucus in Texas and split the delegates so it counts as two separate races), American Samoa, and finally voters abroad like soldiers and diplomats that get all lumped together and treated as one separate race.

So there are a total of 57 races counted in the primaries. They allocate 57 sets of delegates. Campaign teams focus everything on the 57 races that send delegates to the convention.

He was thinking of races but said states. It was a minor slip of the tongue, nothing more.

Ok, I`ll concede that she was answering in a way that could be construed as misspeaking. That happens. Speaking off the cuff is difficult in such arenas. It was further muddled by her attempt to bring it back to a stump speech about freedom. But what irks me is that she always talks about being "free and secure." Are these not mutually exclusive? We really just can`t have both.
