Palin Supporters Invade Wikipedia With True Story Of Paul Revere
Sarah Palin and her supporters are doing many idiotic things today, so here we are posting about her again. Upon hearing that their illiterate leader revised American history to tailor Paul Revere's ride to reflect her NRA-themed wet dream about scaring off British soldiers by hollering and waving guns, Mama Grizzly's supporters' first reaction was to immediately try to change the historical record to match this account. So let's see, where is all actual history stored? Wikipedia! Her supporters flocked to Wikipedia and furiously edited factual inaccuracies into the Paul Revere page, because Palin is never wrong, like the Pope.
Here is the brilliant line that her moron faithful were trying to add:
"Accounts differ regarding the method of alerting the colonists; the generally accepted position is that the warnings were verbal in nature, although one disputed account suggested that Revere rang bells during his ride."
Isn't an "account" usually when someone has had the opportunity to observe an event firsthand? Is Sarah Palin a time traveler?
