He who warned, uh, the British that they weren’t going to be taking away our arms uh by ringing those bells and making sure as he’s riding his horse through town to send those warning shots and bells that we were going to be secure and we were going to be free and we were going to be armed.
Where to begin? First off, the Midnight Ride was to warn the colonists that the British were coming, not to warn the British that they wouldn't take the guns of the colonists. Second, there weren't any bells or gunshots; Paul Revere went to the town to warn the militias by hanging lights in the church tower, one if by land, two if by sea. To make this kind of mistake is not only ridiculous, but it's completely unacceptable. Palin wants to be a force to be reckoned with, a personality that no one can touch. But when she continues to prove how stupid she is, it makes it harder to take her seriously. And the fact that she has become such a personality for the Republicans and Tea Party movement, it makes it harder to take either of those groups seriously also. If the GOP knew what was good for them, they would ditch Palin, NOW!
