Stephen Colbert Tries To Prove Sarah Palin Was Right About Paul Revere

Previously I posted the ludicrous comments Sarah Palin had about Paul Revere's famous ride to warn the patriots that the British were coming. She said Revere was trying to warn the British that they couldn't take out guns away, and he fired his gun and rang bells. FactCheck.org cut Palin some slack but called her view of history badly twisted. Look, Revere's mission was to warn the rebels that the British were marching on Lexington and Concord. He was to warn John Hancock and Samuel Adams that they were going to be arrested. And while the British were going to seize an arms cache at Concord, Palin's Second Amendment fantasy is still stupid. Here's the FactCheck.Org story.

Anyway, last night Stephen Colbert tried to prove Sarah Palin was right. In this brilliant piece, Colbert shows how ludicrous it looks to ride a horse, while firing a musket and ringing a bell. Hilarious.
