People misspeak all the time. No big deal.

Just like Obama and his 57 states.

Still mistakes happen.

the problem is that a bunch of her supporters been actively trying to re-write Wikipedia's page on Paul Revere, to make it sound like Palin was correct.

Don't get me wrong... I'm no Obama supporter. It's just funny and that's why I post it.

I understand people can "misspeak" sometimes - like citing the wrong number of states. But telling a story that is completely different? That's not misspoken, that's miss-informed.

I think it's fine that she made the mistake, but she needs to stop insisting that she was right in the first place. I was a history major in college and actually did a large presentation on Paul Revere and never came across any information that supports her.

I'd give most politicians a pass on this, but not her. At first I thought she misspoke and said "warned the British" instead of "warned the Americans"...but nope- that's what she meant, and she ran with it.

She knew she was going to Boston, and knew she wanted to say patriotic historic crap, so there's really no excuse other than her not being all that bright. She can't answer a question (even softball questions) or make a statement without it be rehearsed. And then not owning up makes her look even dumber, except to her base. When Obama goofed and said "57 states", you didn't see him or his supporters saying "yeah, well....if you count Puerto Rico, Guam, the USS Nimitz and....."

It was an obvious goof from someone who obviously knows better, and we leave it at that. With Palin, she has yet to demonstrate any kind of intelligence about anything, and then she stand by her inane statements.

The wikipedia thing doesn't surprise me. Palin and her supporters are all about revisionist history anyway.

She could actually be technically right. Until England surrendered in 1787 thus ending the war of Independence and freeing the english colonies from the Empire the patriots were still british subjects. So Paul Revere did warn the british when he told the patriots that the british garrison was coming out of its quarters to fight.

That is definitely one way to interrupt it, however, what makes it funny is she did not admit she got it wrong or misspoke, he now actively trying to defend what she said was factually correct and no one but here supports are backing her up.

Our current president messed up his "inauguration speech" ffs.
