Sarah Palin Has No Idea Who Paul Revere Was, Or What He Did
Jabbering imbecile Sarah Palin and her rented tour bus continue to bring laughs to America. Here's how she described Paul Revere's famous 1775 secret horseback ride through the countryside where he quietly warned revolutionary conspirators of the British Army's progress between Boston and Lexington, where they planned to arrest Samuel Adams and John Hancock: “He who warned uh, the British that they weren’t gonna be takin’ away our arms, uh by ringing those bells, and um, makin’ sure as he’s riding his horse through town to send those warning shots and bells that we were going to be sure and we were going to be free, and we were going to be armed.” You must watch this video from the local news in Boston.
Could Sarah Palin bestupider?
Yes, and sheisstupider: She also claims Paul Revere's "midnight ride" on the eve of the Revolutionary War has something to do with the U.S. Constitution's second amendment -- the Bill of Rights wouldn't exist until 1789 and wouldn't be ratified until the end of 1791 -- another 16 years after Revere's famous ride. Ugh, every time Sarah Palin speaks in public, the nation's collective IQ drops another point.
Oh, and those British takin' away our arms? Paul Revere was British. Hancock and Adams were British. (Revere also never shouted "The British are coming," both because that would defeat the purpose of quietly riding by night to alert his fellow revolutionary elitists and because they wereallBritish.) He rang no bells, he fired no shots. Again, what would be the point of a secret midnight ride -- and he was one of approximately 40 revolutionary conspirators and spies riding around Lexington that night warning of the army's approach -- if he was banging on bells and firing shots into the sky like some common Wasilla meth freak with a semi-automatic?
And then Sarah Palin's stupidity and vapidity reached the known threshold and she vanished into space-time. Not really. Not ever. [ PoliticsUSA ]
