Palin on Revere

June 3, 2011 at 10:59 pm 4 comments

Remember the secret “one if by land, two if by sea” signal that Revere carried while sneaking past the British patrols?

Here’s how Sarah explains Paul Revere’s midnight ride – she learned about it from a Bugs Bunny cartoon:

“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.”   

She makes him sound like some drunken redneck riding with a giant bell in one hand and a gun in the other.  Like Revere was just blaring through town yelling “Yeeeeee-haaaaww” – while firing his musket in the air (and then stopping and getting off his horse and putting his bell down so he can pack another shot into his muzzle-loaded rifle).

I think that in her head, she see Larry the Cable Guy riding in a monster truck, with the Liberty Bell mounted in the bed of the truck, and a Dukes of Hazzard horn on the hood, shouting “git r dun” into a megaphone, while firing a Dirty Harry revolver out the window.

How stupid does someone have to be to look at Sarah Palin and say “wow, Sarah Palin is really smart!

 As Rick Ungar (Forbes) humorously writes:

While I had been led to believe that Revere’s historic ride was actually for the purpose of warning our forefathers that the British were coming, it turns out that his midnight ride, complete with ringing bells and warning shots, was really all about letting the English know that we were armed.

No wonder the British lost. They apparently went into the Revolutionary War in the mistaken belief that we would not be armed and, as a result, failed to bring sufficient weaponry of their own.

    Right-wingers like Sarah Palin because she’s one of them: uninformed, religious, and hateful.

    To quote Billy Madison…we are all now dumber for having listened to it. However, I’d much rather listen to Billy than Sarah. Any day of the week.

    She makes me feel smart and scares me at the same time.
