Update below the fold.

Oh, my – Sarah Palin really stepped in it this time, didn’t she? She completely bungled the history of Paul Revere while up North. Yes, this short little clip says it all:

What an idiot, right? I mean ALL the Lefty blogs and news channels are claiming so, from Think Progress above, to Mother Jones, to Chris Matthews (big surprise), to USA Today, and many news outlets in between. Yes, they are all laughing with glee at the ridiculous, preposterous account by Sarah Palin of Paul Revere’s ride.

Except – she’s right. Whoops.

I am sure all of these outlets are just RACING to correct the record. Ahahahaha – not. Of course they aren’t. It is far too much fun to attack Palin for being the biggest idiot this side of George Bush, so why would they bother?

What I have really found funny is when people point out Obama’s misspeaks, his minions are quick to defend him. Check out this comment from Mother Jones in response to someone’s mentioning the 57 (and counting) states comment by Obama:

Nishant Srivastava; Except Obama, at the time a rookie national campaigner, said “We’ve visited 57 states”, when he obviously meant stops in states at a press event he did as part of a campaign for President.

Palin has endured the heat of a prior political campaign, so one can reasonably argue that she should have more experience. [snip]

Uh huh. Except at that point, Obama had been on the campaign trail for months and months, and that was not the only stupid thing he said then, or now. And never mind that Palin had been riding around on a bus for hours and hours and hours – she couldn’t possibly be the least bit tired when she said what she did about Revere.

Which, as I noted above, turned out to be correct, as this historical document highlights:

[snip] I observed a Wood at a Small distance, & made for that. When I got there, out Started Six officers, on Horse back, and orderd me to dismount;-one of them, who appeared to have the command, examined me, where I came from,& what my Name Was? I told him. it was Revere, he asked if it was Paul? I told him yes He asked me if I was an express? I answered in the afirmative. He demanded what time I left Boston? I told him; and added, that their troops had catched aground in passing the River, and that There would be five hundred Americans there in a short time, for I had alarmed the Country all the way up. He imediately rode towards those who stoppd us, when all five of them came down upon a full gallop; one of them, whom I afterwards found to be Major Mitchel, of the 5th Regiment, Clapped his pistol to my head, called me by name, & told me he was going to ask me some questions, & if I did not give him true answers, he would blow my brains out. He then asked me similar questions to those above. He then orderd me to mount my Horse, after searching me for arms. He then orderd them to advance, & to lead me in front. When we got to the Road, they turned down towards Lexington. When we had got about one Mile, the Major Rode up to the officer that was leading me, & told him to give me to the Sergeant. As soon as he took me, the Major orderd him, if I attempted to run, or any body insulted them, to blow my brains out. We rode till we got near Lexington Meeting-house, when the Militia fired a Voley of Guns, which appeared to alarm them very much. [snip] (Click here to read the rest.)

So, tell me where she was wrong?

Like Palin or not, the issue here is one of hypocrisy. We saw it with Hillary Clinton when she exaggerated a story about a trip in Bosnia, one that was fraught with danger, which was, of course, omitted from the accounts.

Obama has misspoken PLENTY, but his misstatements are often underreported by the media or just plain ignored. I don’t recall ANY major news outlet going through his books the way they did Palin’s book. If ANYONE else had said in a speech so blatant a lie as he did describing how the March on Selma enabled his (glorious) birth into this world, though he was born at least FOUR YEARS BEFORE the March, they would have been treated like, well, like Sarah Palin was for what she said about Paul Revere. Though, again, she was accurate, and Obama was not.
At least Hillary Clinton’s claim about Bosnia had SOME truth to it – Obama was just a liar, and allowed to get away with it (then as now).

And they wonder why Palin doesn’t like to talk with MSM? Sheesh.

Bottom line, I don’t care if you love Palin, or think she is Demon Spawn, want her for president, or are horrified at the thought of it. What I DO care about is the media lambasting her for something she was actually correct about, when it fails repeatedly to acknowledge Obama’s foibles (or other prominent Democrats – Biden’s gaffes are now treated as routine), and to do so in such an incredibly juvenile manner. That is the purview of hacks and rags, not prominent news outlets.

My advice? Try checking your facts before you go on the attack, and grow the hell up already. Be a big enough person to admit you attacked her in error, and APOLOGIZE for it. There are legitimate reasons to question ANY politician in a rational manner. But the uproar over this alleged “gaffe” was far from reasonable, and far from adult. Issue a retraction, admit your mistake, and try and be a little less biased in your coverage. Just a thought.

Oh, and for all of those who jumped on this bandwagon just to attack Palin, this is for you:

UPDATE: Thank goodness I was sitting down when I saw the following article from the LA Times, “You know how Sarah Palin said Paul Revere warned the British? Well, he did. Now, who looks stupid?” I know, right? I still almost fell over. Now, of course, despite pesky facts, the commenters are still raging on, attacking the messenger of this reality rather than being big enough people to say they were w-w-w-r-r-o-o-n-n-g-g-g-g, but who really expected them to have that much integrity? They continue to attack Palin relentlessly because, well, just BECAUSE, okay?!?! Here is the pertinent part of the article:

You may have heard recently something about that Sarah Palin telling a reporter that Paul Revere warned the British on his famous rousing revolutionary ride.

Now, that so many Americans have wallowed in their smug confirmation that Palin is an idiot unqualified for anything but repeating sixth-grade history, how far, wide and fast do you think the contradictory news will spread that the former governor of Alaska was indeed correct?

That the Republican non-candidate, in fact, knew more about the actual facts of Revere’s midnight ride than all those idiots unknowingly revealing their own ignorance by laughing at her faux faux pas? How secretly embarrassing this must be, to be forced to face that you’re dumber than the reputed dummy.

As it happens, though, such phenomena are regular occurrences in American politics, reminding consumers of news to be wary when some fresh story seems to fit contemporary assumptions so absolutely perfectly.

The well-known fable is Revere’s late-night ride to warn fellow revolutionaries that….

…the British were coming. Less known, obviously, is the rest of the evening’s events in which Revere was captured by said redcoats and did indeed defiantly warn them of the awakened militia awaiting their arrival ahead and of the American Revolution’s inevitable victory.

Palin knew this. The on-scene reporters did not and ran off like Revere to alert the world to Palin’s latest mis-speak, which wasn’t.

Like a number of famous faux gaffes in American politics, the facts of the situation no longer really matter. [snip] (Click here to read the rest.)

Read the rest – there is some interesting information about someone I always assumed was an idiot for not being able to spell “potato” – turns out he was set up a bit. Who knew? Gore is included, too, for his “creating the internet” comment, though the reality of what he actually said was lost in the rush to (erroneous) judgment.

Anyway, pretty amazing that such a big time outlet actually did the right thing. I do believe we have witnessed a miracle!

    The Left Hates SarahPalin and Paul Revere

    Townhall.com,
    by John Ransom    
    6/6/2011 

    It shouldn’t surprise anyone that when it comes to American history, journalists- who are practically all some variety of socialist
    now- get it wrong most of the time. They study at schools that teach that ideology and point of view come before facts when recounting history. You don’t like the conclusion? Change the facts. Academics and journalists have gone about trying to re-write American history for a half-century. It’s easier to change
    facts than it is to read actual books about an event. That’s partly why journalists have the story of Paul Revere’s ride so fouled up.

    Want to see Palin Derangement Syndrome at it’s finest? Dayglow Cheetos is now practically Daily-Rev, lol. All things Paul Revere! Poems, biographies, paintings, historical timelines!!

  • Prime Obot

    Speaking just for myself, I wasn’t laughing at Palin because she was wrong on the history, I was laughing at her because she’s such a subliterate speaker. The poor woman literally cannot say an ordinary English sentence without creating all these unnecessary dependent clauses while her brain hunts around for meaning. It is truly hilarious. I hope she runs. I really do.

        Sorry, they aren’t in the same class. At all. Obama sometimes speaks slowly and pauses as he decides what to say, but his results, even the extemporaneous ones, sound like English. 

        But ultimately, the proof is in the pudding. He’s the President, and highly likely to remain such until 2106, and she’s a reality TV personality. Honestly, it’s difficult for me to believe that she’ll even try to win the Republican nomination.

        Oops! Fox News uses photo of Tina Fey for story on Sarah Palin

        By Daily Mail Reporter

        Last updated at 6:16 PM on 6th June 2011

        Tina Fey’s impersonation of Sarah Palin is so
        spot-on that Fox News apparently thought she was the former Alaska governor, at
        least for a moment.

        A Fox News report on Sarah Palin’s undeclared
        presidential aspirations showed a photo of comedian Tina Fey impersonating the
        politician.

        When the picture of Ms Fey, in character as
        Mrs Palin, was shown on the screen, the text below the news presenter read:
        ‘Tracking the movements of some 2012 contenders’.

    I love the way Sarah does things.  She knows what she is doing to the MSM.  I agree with you, RRRA, there is nothing fair about the difference in treatment certain politicians receive; and it’s especially no fair in regard to how women are being treated.  But I think Sarah has learned who the people are who follow her.  She knows those people know what idiots the MSM can be.  She knows her followers are not stupid enough to be swayed anymore by the MSM.  And the more she proves the MSM idiots, the less power these people will have.  I know I make it clear to anyone I know who loves Obaby and hates Sarah whenever she is right and the MSM is wrong.  I then always ask why there was never an outcry about O’s mistakes and give them proof that he did indeed make some pretty stupid mistakes in his many, many, many speaking events.

    Thanks for posting this.  

    I was having fun posting how the media is actually coming around to defend Sarah.  I guess it didn’t hurt that she went on Chris Wallace yesterday and recounted it, pointing out how she was not wrong, she knew her history.

    I was laughing that “hell was freezing over”  Left coast, NE and Historians coming to Sarah’s defense in declaring SHE WAS RIGHT, MEDIA IS WRONG! 

    in their rush to try to again attack her. They went with a lead some idiot put out and didn’t check the facts.  Egg Foo Young is what they are. LOL

    I also was shocked to see Salon print a rather surprised take on the Documentary The Undefeated..  There were so many revelations, they had NO IDEA about Sarah Palin that they disclose.

    “The Undefeated” was tested before focus groups of liberals who, according to the filmmaker, almost uniformly came away with a greater appreciation of Palin. This was especially true of women. Two different people told me that a liberal producer at a major television network (it was not Fox News) left the movie in tears after “realizing” how badly Palin had been treated by the media.” 
    ……of course, this is written by former Bush speechwriter, but still, the NeoCons are VERY threatened by Sarah.  They are too quick to use the Liberal attacks. charles K is a winner on that.  And in this account, he too did a back handed Mea Culpa when he showed he was still to quick to further LIES and not use facts.  Claiming her “short 18 months” in office. REALLY, really?  try 32 months.

    The Battle of ‘The Alts’
    against the Mainstream Media

    Canada Free Press,
    by Judi McLeod   
    6/6/2011  

    We all knew it even it before Sarah Palin showed them
    at their worst: the mainstream media are (by and large) male sissies and female
    primps. Before heading out on the “story”, mainstream media men need their
    fizzling out batteries recharged with multiple lattes; mainstream media women
    need convincing from their cameramen that every blonde hair is in place; that
    their lips really do look bee-stung.

     Here’s a question for all of the Palin defenders with regards to her statement on Paul Revere: if Sarah Palin really was correct in her assessment that Revere was “warning the British”, why have Palin’s supporters been furiously trying to edit Paul Revere’s Wikipedia entry for the past 48 hrs to back up her claim?  Shouldn’t it have already included her version of events?

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:Paul_Revere#Sarah_Palin.27s_army_needs_to_go_away

    One more thing: is asking a politician “”What have you seen so far today, and what are you going to take away from your
    visit?” a “gotcha” question?

    • Lana2

      I visited the wiki link you cited. It has far more Palin haters on it than supporters trying to change it.

      If you are here to voice your opinion and to have a conversation, fine. It seems, though, you are only here to stir things up and bait people. You have no intention of having a genuine discussion of why each side has their views. I am referring to the many posts I’ve seen from you, not just the ones here.

      If you read RRRA’s article, you’ll note that the gist of it is the hypocrisy of the media that holds some candidates to different standards. Let’s assume for a moment that Palin is entirely wrong. (I don’t believe that, but let’s suppose.) Therefore would it not also be entirely appropriate for the media to jump all over Obama for saying such geographically incorrect statement as there are 57 states and that the Great Lakes are in Oregon? Yet they didn’t. They defended him. And that is the point.

      • arturo_ui

        “If you are here to voice your opinion and to have a conversation, fine.
        It seems, though, you are only here to stir things up and bait people.”

        That seems to be an opinion only afforded to unpopular points of view on this site.  People who toe the anti-Obama line here are never accused of “baiting people”.  Only those who simply disagree.

        “You have no intention of having a genuine discussion of why each side
        has their views. I am referring to the many posts I’ve seen from you,
        not just the ones here.”

        If you have truly been following the “many posts” you’ve seen from me, you would understand that it is not me who is not intent on “having a genuine discussion”, but rather those who attack me ceaselessly like Ferd Berfle, simply for offering an alternative point of view.  I’m not abusive, I don’t go off on people, I don’t call people “idiots” or whatever else.  That is the kind of language directed AT ME–not the other way around.  If you sincerely have a problem with people obstructing “genuine discussion” here, you have a problem with Ferd and some other abusive commenters here, and you should take it up with them.  I am the one trying to start a conversation; they are the ones trying to shut it down.

        • Lana2

          Of course.  Absolutely.
           
           
           “they didn’t. They defended him.”
           
           
          I don’t recall the media “defending” him on that one, other than maybe some saying he must have meant 47 and he had a verbal gaffe, brainfart, whatever.  For better or worse (probably worse), the media tends to build narratives around public figures like Obama and Palin, and stick with those.  Obama’s narrative is that he is Spock, emotionless, elitist, but also highly intelligent.  Palin’s is that she is an uninformed celebrity prone to impulsive, poorly thought-out statements.  She gave a series of really poor interviews right out of the gate when she was nominated in 2008 (Gibson, Couric, etc.).  That was more or less her first impression to the media, and she never really was able to correct the negative impression.  After the election, she had another chance to rehab her image by working hard as governor and immersing herself in national policy.  She declined to do both of things.  Quitting the governorship was probably the worst decision she ever could have made, next to her post-Tucson whining about “blood libel”.

        • Lana2

          Have to reply to myself here, arturo, since there aren’t enough levels to reply to you.

          I don’t recall the media “defending” him on that one, other than maybe some saying he must have meant 47 and he had a verbal gaffe, 

          You’re absolutely right. The media didn’t defend him. They didn’t report it.
          The only place it got reported was on conservative blogs, where the liberals excused him because he was tired…
          Palin can’t say anything wrong. Liberals/Media will not allow her to have a human moment. It’s front page news when Palin makes a gaffe.

          the media tends to build narratives around public figures like Obama and Palin, and stick with those.  Obama’s narrative is that he is Spock, emotionless, elitist, but also highly intelligent.  Palin’s is that she is an uninformed celebrity prone to impulsive, poorly thought-out statements. 

          Again, the media did not create this narrative about Obama…except for the intelligent part. Show me one mainstream outlet that calls Obama elitist or emotionless (except for his calm collectedness when he went in and shot bin Laden.) The media did create Palin’s narrative and have no interest in allowing her to be anything but. Both politicians have made gaffes, but the media does not cover them equally.

        • arturo_ui

          “Both politicians have made gaffes, but the media does not cover them equally.”

          I think that is in some ways true.  However, I also believe that Sarah Palin has done herself no favors by going to war against the “lamestream media”.  She’s basically daring them to cover her hypercritically at every turn, and in some ways they are obliging her.  I also think she has made more “gaffes” than the President, and he is no stranger to gaffes.

          Thanks for the polite conversation.  It is refreshing.

        • Lana2

          She’s basically daring them to cover her hypercritically at every turn
          At this point and to some extent she may be. But if you think about how the media began their attacks against her the moment she was announced as VP candidate, it is totally understandable. They mocked her family, her way of life, canvassed the neighbors, questioned her ability as a VP because she has kids to take care of etc. To this day there are people who think she said “I can see Russia from my house.” Obama was never questioned by the media. He should have been asked about his cocaine use (they certainly got after Bush about his alcohol use), his grades (ditto), his foreign policy experience (none), his quotes from his book about standing with the Muslims, his association with Wrght, and so on. At the beginning of his campaign he got away with not allowing reporters on his bus and not taking questions from the media. Palin isn’t even a candidate yet and the press is complaining that they aren’t in on the itinerary. Their lives are in danger!

           I also think she has made more “gaffes” than the President, and he is no stranger to gaffes.

          Can’t agree with you at all on that one. Again it goes to media coverage. At some point during the primary and election there was a list going around on conservative blogs that had over 100 gaffes Obama had made. The media just didn’t report on them. Remember the time he said Pennsylvanians were bitter people who cling to their guns? Do you seriously think the media would have allowed Palin to get away with that?

      As I stated above after this posting is a link to a slew of enclyopedias with posting dates several years old that back up Palin’s story about Revere…I knew this from College
      Its such a shame that our young people, especially the easily gullable ones that will follow anyone are either not being taught our country’s history in school, are not listening in school, or are not doing their own research before believing whatever is passed on to them as gospel..
