Paul Revere's Ride, Revised!
Everyone must know by now of Sarah Palin's infamous retelling of the story of Paul Revere's Ride. It was a hot day, maybe she got confused; OK, I'm being kind. I mean come on, every school child knows what happened. I am utterly floored that anyone with such a distorted view of history should be in the public eye. The worst part is, later, when asked by Fox News Sunday anchor Chris Wallace, "you realize you messed up about Paul Revere, don't you?" , she replied "Part of his ride was to warn the British that were already there. That, hey, you're not going to succeed. You're not going to take American arms. You are not going to beat our own well-armed persons, individual, private militia that we have," she added. "He did warn the British."Sad. I almost feel remorse for poking fun at her. Almost.
