Uh, yes she did…
It’s so hard to post this without an outburst of profanity…
She was WRONG and she can’t even admit it.
Facts are facts and she doesn’t know hers.
She is an ignorant simpleton who wants all the media coverage she can get, but only on her own terms.
I can’t believe people take her seriously. Her being accepted as a “legitimate” candidate for President of the United States is just ridiculous. It makes the entire country look bad.
That sounds so much nicer than what I’m really thinking….
WASHINGTON (AP/The Huffington Post) — Sarah Palin says she didn’t mess up her history on Paul Revere.
The potential 2012 presidential candidate was in Boston on Thursday as part of her bus tour when she was asked about the Revolutionary War hero.
Palin said Revere “warned the British that they weren’t gonna be takin’ away our arms.”
Palin, a paid Fox News contributor, told “Fox News Sunday” that she was correct. She says there were British soldiers in the area for years before Revere’s legendary ride, and that he was warning them, as well as his fellow colonists.
“Part of his ride was to warn the British that were already there that ‘hey, you’re not going to take American arms, you are not going to beat our own well-armed persons individual private militia that we have.'”
She blamed her previous answer on the media, saying it was a “gotcha question.”
The Paul Revere House’s website says that on April 18, 1775, Dr. Joseph Warren instructed Revere to ride to Lexington, Mass., to warn Samuel Adams and John Hancock that British troops were marching to arrest them.

Another case of Palin-style revisionism… stupid things come out of her mouth and her followers believe every word because they are either illiterate and/or ignorant of the facts.
The day she owns a mistake is the first day of the Apocalypse.
