    My neice was taught that Greenland was a continent.  She had points taken off an exam because she identified it as part of North America.

    "But no, they went off and screamed Revere never told them that armed colonials waitin on their a55es, and that bells were never rung." Nice strawman.  The entirety of her word salad was the joke.  The idea of Revere riding around Boston shooting warning shots, ringing bells and riding with the intent to send a message to the Brits was the joke. It's simple.  Somebody says Paul Revere and his midnight ride.  You say one if by land, two if by sea, riding to warn of the coming of the Brits.  You don't make it into a bold statement of defiance to the Brits about 2nd amendment rights.  And after his ride, he was captured, and lied to the Brits, who then let him go.  That was not his ride. Anyway she's a joke, and you look silly for defending her.  She represents the dumbing down of America, and willful ignorance.  Whatever happened to being thoughtful instead of going with your gut or what God tells you to do, that religious certainty that defies reason and logic?  Being wrong is one thing, but the doubling down and willful ignorance is the real problem.  A gotcha question, really? Wingnuts defend her because they think the argument was that at no time were bells rung, and that Paul Revere never encountered the British AFTER his ride.

    Regardless of whether Palin was right or wrong, let's advance the story.  The real issue is that the left sees this as an absolute horror that she could get something so insiginficant wrong.  I mean, this is so much worse than claiming to have been to all 57 states.

    The left has been caught caring deeply about the accuracy of something that is irrelevant.  Waste all the ammo you want.

    Again with the 57 states.  I will agree that this was a mistake that no one saw coming.  I am willing to forgive what candidates  say while debating or when months into a physically taxing campaign trail.  When I say forgive, I mean comments like 57 states or when Palin did not know who was in charge of the senate, or the names of the Generals in Iraq.

    The thing about this palin mistake was:  it appeared that someone had just briefed her.  She was speaking slowly and was unsure of her comments.  In other words, speaking as she does all the time.

    Interestingly, just a quick look at the recent trove of emails has shown that Mrs. Palin is actually an effective writer and uses proper syntax - something many, many college grads (esp. in business) can't seem to grasp.

    Why that efficiency in her writing does not translate into the same efficiency in her speech is unclear.

    "appeared" 

    Always looking for that angle to get in a dig.  When wrong on the facts, argue how the facts "appeared".

    I understand it.  It is how people compensate.  I do most of my communication face to face, write little.  when I do write, it is a challenge to capture all the information I need to convey, or receive.  Maybe Palin is the opposite.

    anyone who believes that palin was right, should be sent back to the 4th grade to learn some history

    and when you watch the video...you can see that even she knows she said the wrong thing and then tries to cover it up

    but its ok...conservatives and history go together like conservatives and fiscal responsibility

    or did they find the billions "lost" in iraq yet?

    How about them Mavericks?  We on the Celtics board are STILL waiting for you to come on and offer congratulations.  But I know you won't, for, as I've said all year, you are a passive-aggressive coward who can't ever admit he's wrong.

    Have a nice day, and don't come back!!

    anyone who believes that palin was right, should be sent back to the 4th grade to learn some history Egads man, this is page 8! Revere told the Brits there were hundreds of armed colonials waiting for them because he had a gun to his head. No, it wasn't planned and no, it wasn't about taking guns away.  If the idiot dems so obsessed with this dunce had gone after that, they'd have been fine. Oh, and yes, bells were a-ringing.  I live on his route. I will type slow. PAUL REVERE WARNED THE BRITISH ARMY THAT THE COLONIALS WERE ARMED AND WAITING FOR THEM. - Source, Paul F'ing Revere. We all set now???

    because im sure that is what she meant

    and giving out information because you have a gun to your head is not a warning, its a plea for your own life...which would actually make revere a bit of a coward right?

    warned? good grief...anything to support a conservative dummy huh?

    Not done with basketball, just blogging, coward.

    It IS a Celtics board, as I've told you all year, so who cares about the HEAT???  Only you, and your obnoxious bragging.

    Clearly, while I may be good at math, politics isn't your bag either.

    Pierce's handicap is about one better than LeBron James, the King of Nothing, who flamed out in the playoffs, and is a bigger quitter than bandwagon fans like you.

    You are a coward, come on back to the Celtics board and see how much everyone missed you!!

    I see there is a history between a few posters on basketball.  I wish I had more insight to participate.

    I will say that I have never seen anyone lay down like Lebron did in the last several minutes of game 6.  I am sure one day he will get a ring, but right now he is not in the same class as Paul Perice, who does have a ring.

    How does Lebron's a55 feel after Dirk violated him???

    I taught for more years than I care to remember. Sarah Palin is the first one to come out with this particular version of US History.

    Maybe why our kids are so far behind the rest of the world in US History! Teachers are not teaching facts! Wouldn't want to hurt anyone's feeling!
