Everyone has already had a grand old time mocking this video of Sarah Palin bungling her Paul Revere history, but I actually think it amounts to quite an eloquent statement. Its as eloquent an argument as anyone could make that this woman really should not be treated by any of us as anything resembling a presidential candidate until its absolutely necessary which is to say, until she actually runs for president.

If only they devoted a tenth as much time getting after Obama's many gaffes.
I missed the gaffee. Was it a true oops or just a matter of opinion of the so called elites.
Maybe she should jab them a little harder by publishing a list of her gaffes that the media has reported versus a list of all of obama’s gaffes up to the present. Any guesses as to which is longer?
As Rush said today the media did not make Sarah so they cannot destroy Sarah..
They are terrified of her and angry over her attitude towards the media....
IF THEY HATE HER, SHE MUST BE DOING SOMETHING RIGHT...
But you know, most people stumble over words a little when, especially when they're actually talking without a teleprompter.
the same Greg Sargent with the posting below about pullling an ad and the Progressive Change thingy???
Oh yeah, I’ll jump right on it.....Sarcasm intended.
Aman goes to England, he knows he has to make a toast, He has no friggin idea how to do it, He doesn’t bother to ask or he forgets his instructions, He screws it up and the Media gives him a pass.
Sarah cannot sneeze without them jumping al over her. The Washington Post is toilet paper.
He who warned, uh, the the British that they weren't gonna be takin' away our arms, uh, by ringin' those bells and, um, by makin' sure that as he's ridin' his horse through town to send those warnin' shots and bells that, uh, we were gonna be secure and we were gonna be free and we were gonna be armed.
OMG the horror.
I think it is more accurate to say they smell a potential candidate they can pull a Dan Quale on.
Luckily for Sarah, no one in her party needed an aspirator or inhalator after passing out. Bob
Make it stop?
Unemployment 9.1 and it’s Summer Recovery II...
The Obama, Pelosi and Reid spending spree’s bought what???
Wait... the Washington Post doesn’t like Palin?
Much ado about nothing. The media is grasping at straws to try and bring her down. I’ve listened to her enough to forgive some silly gaff from a lady who has been out there talking the talk (and walking the walk) since the 2008 campaign. I’m positive she knows the true hhistory of the event and just got to talking to fast and her tounge got ahread of her brain. Happens to all of us (except Barry and Joe and the media elites of course - their special).
The lady has them biting their fingernails and making up comforting statements targeted at making them feel better.
Only a liberal is stupid enough to make something up out of whole cloth...and then believe it.
That's why they come up with ridiculously skewed polls...they'll believe them even though they know it's contrived.
He signs the guest book 2008. Imagine if Sarah or even Bush had done that. They would still be laughing.

I hope you all do know that Quayle was given the card with the misspelling - by the school principal.
That said, I worked in an industry that had many high-fliers, and none of them (all guys) could spell worth a darn. But on the other hand, they could answer any question you asked them, knew enough to find out about things they may not have known, and could speak without a teleprompter.
Personally, I think Palin doesn’t want to be president and is thinking about who she wants to support. But that has the press scared out of their collective wits too.
This kind of sophomoric crap isn’t going to phase her it only serves to make the author look petty and small. (Put another way, it makes him look like a Wiener)
If that were true, they'd be begging us to nominate her.
I don't see that happening, do you?
Please show me, if you can.
If you can't, then you're either a liar or an idiot.
Remember when Sarah tweeted some of the embarrassing Obama gaffes several months ago? It was comical. These few seconds of fractured speech would have been hailed if said by Obama, without a prompter. It would have been BHO at his finest.
Everyone has already had a grand old time mocking this video of Sarah Palin bungling her Paul Revere history,
Bet no Democrat in Congress and no one from the MSM can tell us about our Constitution, Declaration of Independence, Bill of Rights or any of our founding documents. Bunch of elitist frauds and narrow minded socialist twits.
I know which one I'm going with.
In my world the sun doesn’t rise and set on Sarah Palin. People, she is human and not worthy of the god-like respect she gets on this website. I think West, Cain and Backmann are just as much if not more worthy of our adoration. Only God is perfect. This woman is human and makes mistakes just like we all do. Stop the worship, PLEASE!
OK, that’s the basic friggin’ IDEA, IIRC, without much handwringing bullsh!t about whether during his ride, he frightened some deer and upset the delicate balance of nature, or got dust in the eyes of some Native American, or other such nonsense;)
I’ll bet you a Weiner on that one! There is no way that Sarah Palin will choose to be nothing more than a cheerleader for others, at a time when we need HER as President. Bob
She should ask some of the reporters if they have the map of the 57 states obozo visited in 2008.

Greg Sargent at the Post has an interesting theory on the real meaning of Obamas memorial speech (Re: Arizona shooting):
Its true that Obama stated clearly there that rhetoric didnt cause the shooting. But these lines are best understood as a set up to the larger point that followed, which is that the shooting confers a moral obligation upon all of us to improve the tone and integrity of our discourse. If Obama had delivered this latter message in isolation, without the set up, conservatives would have rejected it as political, as criticism directed at them
Even if Obama didnt say so, his larger mesesage that we all tone it down was mainly though not exclusively directed at the right. In a context where prominent conservatives have called accused Obama of not loving America and have called him a socialist, a Marxist, a secret Muslim sympathizer, and a coddler of our enemies, Obamas insistence that we improve the discourse for the sake of our children and our country was unmistakably aimed mostly at them.
yeah, because they’ve been giving her a free pass up until now.
STAND UP CHUCK!!
Except she didn’t completely bungle it.
The delivery left much to be desired. The content, not so much. Chances are she had a whole bunch of data crammed into her head during a tour there, and was trying to rattle it all off.
Oh, for shame, poor delivery. At least she didn’t say all that during the National Anthem.
One of the finest moments of his presidency. Obama didnt just stand up for the legal right of the group to build the Islamic center. He voiced powerful support for their moral right to do so as well, casting it as central to American identity....Obama directly confronted the demagoguery at the core of much of the opposition to this project....Ultimately, though, Obamas speech transcends the politics of the moment, and will go down as a defining and perhaps even a breakthrough performance.
Washington Post Plum Line blogger Greg Sargent in an August 14 posting.
Several comments are posted defending her and at first those comments had by far the most votes which tells me she has much more support than we are being led to believe. Problem is anybody can vote the comments up or down on dailymail without a logon and paid dem operatives will clear their browser cache to be able to vote the defending comments down over and over again.
That’s right! That’s why we don’t expect her to be perfect, only committed, tenacious, courageous and correct on the issues. Sarah has two decades of successful executive experience, and that’s why for me she is head and shoulders above the crowd, even above these excellent people you mention. Bob
Not a single word is published about Palin by the MSM that they haven't thought long and hard on for maximum impact.
When they make a headline such as “Please make it stop”
they are hoping to make Palin the focus of desperate crazy people and maybe one will “Please make it stop” by killing her.
Otherwise, why the emotional appeal “Please”?
Why the definite end “make it stop”?
“It” can be anything, like voices in a crazy persons head.
How about this for the headline:
“There should be no campaign coverage of Sarah Palin”
Ever since that Arizona woman got shot in the head the MSM has been playing this game against Palin. The MSM was not upset that a politician was shot. They were upset it wasn't palin but they are trying hard on fixing that.
So what. Libtards don't have a clue when it comes to knowing anything about the principles of Americanism of the Founding Fathers.
I don’t agree. I don’t think she’d see herself as a “cheerleader” for others. She could make or break somebody, frankly.
But I think she wants to stir up people’s courage and enthusiasm with this tour, but not necessarily to run herself. Unless we get courage and enthusiasm and hope back, we’re not going to win in 2012.
And I think she wants us to win, but if she doesn’t want to be the candidate, she wants to have a lot of say in picking him or her. Which she should have. But the only way to get around the GOP establishment, which has already nominated the unelectable Romney, is to build her base and work outside of the “system.”
Good summary of the Obamanation.
WaPo Hires Lefty Blogger Greg Sargent, Foe of Conservative ‘Wingnut Mendacity’
Greg Sargent, who worked for the Bush-bashing blog Talking Points Memo and for a time wrote a poor-mans-Media-Matters blog called “The Horses Mouth” attacking the idea of liberal media bias
Sargent signed off to his hard-core liberal readership this way:
I’m heading over to The Washington Post, where I’ll be writing the lead blog on a new site that WaPo is launching. This will drive you mad with curiosity, unfortunately, but the details on the new site and blog will only be forthcoming when it launches the week after next.
In response to saddened TPM readers, asking him if hed back to the partisan blogging for 2012, he said “all I can say is I really hope to be part of TPM again...”
Washington Posts Greg Sargent Demands Unions Get Violent
The Washington Posts leftwing mouthpiece, Greg Sargent, who they ostensibly pay to be an objective reporter is on twitter demanding that unions in Wisconsin get violent to get their way.
on Twitter that Sargent was calling for unions to get violent in Wisconsin, Sargent declared he was not promoting violence despite actually writing on twitter:
Dear union thugs: Will you please get violent in Wisconsin already? Pretty please?
Gay Alert! Gay Alert! Gay Alert!!!
“...we were gonna be secure and we were gonna be free and we were gonna be armed.”
Sounds good to me. Paul Revere would likely approve.
Sarah has them literally running in circles! This is a great maneuver. It’s fun to watch the press fall all over themselves. LOL!
Isn’t it called gaydar?
JournoListas like Greg Sargent formally of Soros-funded Talking Points Memo never gain national attention except in scathing critiques on blogs by people lamenting the loss of journalistic integrity from people who live off the unearned credit of the term journalist.
Greg Sargent of the Washington Posts The Plum Line Blog recently posted a piece scolding BigJournalism.com for not properly observing journalistic ethics. Yet in the process Sargent made a number of assumptions based on his own biased beliefs and ultimately ended up not only muddying the waters but seeming to commit the same errors he claimed Big Journalism was perpetrating.
Most of those mediots have no idea who Paul Revere is let alone the average HS student.
Pray for America
“Thank Goodness that Sarah didn’t say that her bus tour was going to visit 57 states.”
Maybe she should say it!
“Just as Ubama said, we’re going to visit all 57 States!” Then burst out laughing!
