Sarah Palin Messes Up The Paul Revere Ride

Somewhere Poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow is spinning in his grave. You see Longfellow made famous the ride of Paul Revere to warn fellow patriots that the British were marching on the towns of Lexington and Concord, Massachusetts. His poem is one that every school child has heard and remembers the first famous lines, "Listen my children and you shall hear; Of the midnight ride of Paul Revere." Yeah, it's not totally accurate history but still the poem burned into every school child, the story of Paul Revere. Unless you happen to be Sarah Palin.

Sarah Palin was touring Boston on her family vacation, paid for by her PAC. Okay she says she's trying to "educate" Americans of our founding principles. At least she says that in the dialogue box asking for money on her PAC site. Anyway, when asked about Paul Revere's ride, Sarah Palin tried to "educate" the public about Revere by saying she was warning the British that they couldn't take away our arms and was ringing bells. What the ... ? Just check out the video of her below. Note to the Daily Show, this video doesn't need any jokes.
