Listen my children and I'll be tellin'
Of the mid-day tour by Sarah Palin
On the third day of June in Twenty-Eleven
Libs thought they'd died and gone to heaven
"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."
I didn't know that.
HMM: Another tough day for Palin's critics, including yours truly - Paul Revere did in fact warn the Brits, after being subjected to enhanced interrogation (under which, as Cheney's detractors insist, people will say anything except the truth. People other than Paul Revere, I guess.) However, one might note that Mr. Revere did not set off with the intention of warning the British, and I question whether Ms. Palin projected a Presidential level of confidence and authority as she brought these facts forward. I'll hide behind Patterico on this one.
