WASHINGTON (AP) Sarah Palin says she didn't mess up her history on Paul Revere.

I listened to what she said it it sure sounded dumb to me. The train-wreck candidate.
why?are you truly unaware that paul revere did in fact warn the british that the colonists were ready to fight after he was captured?read your history before you say palin mispoke.
I want a middle column, Undecided.
I want to be the first Undecided.
why? What did she get wrong? Please enlighten those of us who don’t know this history
Why? She didn’t misspoke, even Chris Wallace said that he looked it up and that she was right, just like when Sarah said ‘1773’ about the Tea Party and many Libs were laughing, thinking that she goofed it up because she was suppose to say 1776 but later on it was proven that she was right
Revere confronted 2 British regulars manning a road block as he headed north across Charlestown Neck. As he turned around, the regulars gave chase and he eluded them. He then continued on to Lexington, to the home of Jonas Clarke where Sam Adams and John Hancock were staying. There, his primary mission was fulfilled when he notified Adams and Hancock that "The Regulars are coming out!" (he never exclaimed, "The British are coming". This would have made no sense at the time since they considered themselves British).
Revere and Dawes then headed for Concord and came across Doctor Prescott who then joined them. They decided to alarm every house along the way.
Just outside of the town of Lincoln, they were confronted by 4 Regulars at another road block. They tried unsuccessfully to run their horses through them. Prescott, who was familiar with the terrain, jumped a stone wall and escaped. Revere and Dawes tried to escape and shortly into the chase they were confronted by 6 more regulars on horseback. Revere was surrounded and taken prisoner. Dawes got away as they were taking Revere into custody.
The British officers began to interrogate Revere, whereupon Revere astonished his captors by telling them more than they even knew about their own mission. (HA!) He also told them that he had been warning the countryside of the British plan and that their lives were at risk if they remained in the vicinity of Lexington because there would soon be 500 men there ready to fight.
Revere, of course, was bluffing. (end of excerpt)
The only thing Palin got wrong was she didn't point out that Revere was bluffing.
I forgive her.
This Paul Revere thing has done more to restore
actual history than just about everything tried
Trying to prove Sarah wrong, the LSM are forced
PRAISE GOD minds and eyes opening at last.
Which is nothing near the innovative way Revere warned the populus of the Brittish invasion.
Yeah, Palin knew where she was going, and one would think the at least she would do a little homework before fielding questions from the media.
Yes, their hatred of her is very personal. She exemplifies a class of women in this country, that doesn’t get the credit it deserves. Truthful, follows a moral compass, lives her beliefs, loyal and worthy of respect. She won’t get bullied and they know it.
If she promised to watch your bank account, pick up your mail, or feed your dog, you’d never need to worry while you were gone. I also think she gives a damn about my family. Thats how i see her.
The ones on that panel, not so much,,, ya know?
We had Party boy for a president, now maybe it’s time for a responsible woman, like one we all know to walk in the door and straighten out the mess that the REp/Dem adolescents have made.

She sounded dumb? Well was she right about Paul Revere? Yes she was, Chris Wallace said he googles it and found out that she was right after all, and a professor also said that Palin was absolutely correct. Where does that put you?

Exactly! She is actually baiting the media and talking heads to jump on her “mistakes” only to later confirm that she is correct.
...the only problem with this strategy is that the story subsides before the second part of the strategy can come to fruition.
laughing my azz off!
I hate to get personal (Im lying, I love it!) but some women have a real problem with Sarahs beauty. She looked amazing today with the most beautiful necklace and cross around her neck.
I also loved the necklace. From a distance I was thinking it was perhaps turquoise, what with her being in AZ, but when I was walking a little closer to the TV later in the interview, I was thinking it might be tanzanite. Very pretty whatever it was.
Loved her makeup and hair too. I’m sure many other women don’t like her because of her looks, especially U-G-L-Y liberal women. I think Sarah & Todd are a very nice looking couple. And I bet she does her own makeup too.
The untold story is the vast number of Americans that are learning about Paul Revere and the events of April 19, 1775. Thanks to Sarah and her bus tour theyll learn more as the tour continues.
If the AP&LSM ever figure out that by covering the tour theyre playing right into Sarahs wheelhouse, why, their heads will explode!
Of course, as we all remember Dorothy and her FRiends did not surrender!
