Sarah Palin is making all kinds of headlines on her "One Nation" bus tour.
Some say Palin fumbled while talking about Paul Revere's midnight ride which is most famous for the phrase "the British are coming."
The former V.P. nominee says it was a candid answer and she knows her stuff.
On Fox News Sunday, host Chris Wallace challenged Palin, "You realize that you messed up about Paul revere, Don't you?" asked Wallace.
Palin replied "You know what? I didn't mess up about Paul Revere. Here is what Paul Revere did. He warned the Americans that the British were coming, The British were coming, and they were going to try take our arms and we got to make sure that we were protecting ourselves and shoring up all of ammunitions and our firearms so that they couldn't take it."
So, did Paul Revere actually warn the Americans and also, as Palin said in that bakery over the weekend, warn the British? In a word, yes, Palin is right.
5th grade history will teach you about Paul Revere's late night ride. Revere was riding from Boston to Concord alerting farmers that the British were crossing the Charles River. He warned that the Redcoats were trying to get the ammo dump at Concord. The part of the story we rarely hear about though is that later that same night, Paul Revere, was stopped at a British checkpoint.
Revere was questioned by British soldiers at gunpoint. They demanded to know what he had been doing and Revere told them that he'd been waking up the farmers. He also told those soldiers that British Regulars had run aground trying to cross the river. And he told those British soldiers that "there would be 500 Americans there in a short time."
So, in addition to warning the Americans that the British were coming, he did warn the British sentries that the Americans were coming.
In fairness, the one place Palin was a little off in her history, was that she inferred that Paul Revere was warning the British that they weren't going to take the guns from Americans. In actuality, Revere was warning those soldiers to let him go because he had 500 brother's-in-arms on their way.
Here's what you need to know.
Sarah Palin is held to an unbelievable standard for everything she says but if she plans to run for President, the media should hold her to a high standard but not an unfair one.
On the other hand, the media themselves, should also be held to a standard of checking the validity of the statement before "riding off" to proclaim the message that Sarah Palin finally gave them a sound-bite.
