Okay … we all know that teabaggers love to rewrite recent political history to suit their agenda and/or their abject ignorance and abhorrence of all things intellectual.
But Sunday, the teabaggers’ “I hate the mainstream media” darling once again stuffed her face in front of any camera she could find, to demonstrate how Sarah Palin – the Prophet of Profit – rewrites not-so-recent American history by thoroughly mangling the basic story of “The Midnight Ride of Paul Revere.”
On Sunday, at the actual house of Paul Revere and then at Boston’s Old North Church, Palin opened her face-anus once again, and what came out was as ignorant and wrong as we could possibly expect her to be.
“He who warned, uh, the British,” Palin said, “that they weren’t going to … umm … be taking away our arms uh by ringing those bells and … uhhh … making sure as he’s riding his horse through town to send those warning shots and bells that we were … uhhh … going to be secure and we were going to be free and we were going to be armed.”
Warned the British?!? Hasn’t this imbecile ever even watched an episode of Schoolhouse Rock? What kind of “American Super-Patriot” doesn’t even know the basic facts about one of America’s FIRST super-patriots?
Sarah Palin thinks Paul Revere’s ride was about the Second Amendment — which didn’t even EXIST when Paul Revere (and Israel Bissell, who made the *true* warning ride – but that’s another story) made their historic rides. The “Gun-Totin’ Grizzly Mama” spews and babbles incessantly about Second Amendment rights and about being “real American patriots” but she literally does not know when the 2nd Amendment was written or why, and she doesn’t know the most simplistic nursery rhyme details of Paul Revere’s ride. And this constantly-proving-herself-to-be-an-imbecile wants to be president.
Paul Revere wasn’t ringing bells or firing shots into the air. He had to quietly deliver the message that the regulars were coming to arrest John Adams and John Hancock. But details like those are just “silly things that intellectuals and academics worry about,” according to America’s foremost female idiot.
The Second Amendment to the United States Constitution – about which Palin claims to be an authority – was adopted on December 15, 1791 — almost 17 years *AFTER* Paul Revere’s ride on April 18, 1775.
How many of these demonstrations of her ignorance and stupidity should we allow Sarah Palin to get away with? On Saturday, she repeatedly called the Statue of Liberty the “Statute of Liberty” and nobody corrected her. Her defenders call that “picking on poor Sarah.” Here’s just one article that details more than a dozen gigantic screw-ups Palin made, in just ONE half-hour interview.
And every time Palin shows her ignorance (i.e., every time she opens her mouth), the teabaggers and Palindrones all resort to the same lame, singular all-encompassing defense: “Oh yeah? Well what about Obama’s 57 states”? In their feeble, Fox-programmed minds, one verbal mis-speak by a visibly exhausted campaigner is the same as HUNDREDS of stupid statements by the same person, over and over, under even the best of conditions.
They use the same defense when America’s other idiotesse, Michele Bachmann, dips her own toe into the pool or morondom, such as when Bachmann said, repeatedly, that the “Shot Heard Round the World” which started the Revolutionary War, occurred in Lexington and Concord NEW HAMPSHIRE, instead of Massachusetts where it was actually fired. Once again, and exactly like Palin, forcing them to sit down and shut up for an hour and make them watch Schoolhouse Rock cartoons would do them – and us – a world of good.
Sarah Palin has absolutely no idea what she is talking about … EVER! She’s constantly wrong and screws up even the simplest concepts and ideas. Yet she — and the pathetic dullards who support her (and keep giving her money) think she is qualified to be the President of the United States.
When these idiots spew their own incorrect version of history, we have a duty as Americans to correct it. As Sarah Palin considers running for president, we have a duty to report on what she says and does – not make equally stupid excuses for her having said or done it. If we keep making excuses for Sarah Palin’s incalculable ignorance, we will have no excuse if she happens to wink and buy her way to the presidency some day.
I actually fear that somebody will eventually get so fed up with Sarah Palin’s stupidity and 24/7 media self-exposure, that they’ll shoot her in the head. That would be indeed tragic … because the resulting vacuum implosion will damage untold billions in property and acreage all around her. And then her buddy Eric Cantor can withhold federal disaster aid unless we give Israel another hundred billion a year.
Remember, nobody on the left thought George W. Bush was smart enough to be president either. And as proven-stupid as Bush is, Palin makes him look like Stephen Hawking in comparison.
