More Quote of the Day Honorable Mention Part 296

Special "Paul Revere & the Haters" Edition

Adrienne Ross, at Motivation Truth:
“Over and over again, people who try to prove that Governor Palin is stupid show themselves to be the epitome of the same... One would think that the haters would learn their lesson, check their facts, and back the heck up! But no. The result? Further embarrassment, as Governor Palin teaches yet another lesson in history... The media follow her everywhere she goes, she graciously grants them interviews, answering every question they have about substantive issues that affect our country, and when they think they've happened upon a gotcha moment, they pounce. Is there any wonder good people who simply love their country shy away from public service? God bless Governor Palin. May she ever speak the truth, take a stand for what's right, and persevere in highlighting the history of this great country.”
Jim Hoft, at Gateway Pundit:
“Sarah Palin was right. Paul Revere did in fact tell the British that the colonial militias, who had been alerted, were waiting for them.”
Aaron Worthing, at Patterico's Pontifications:
“This is frankly a textbook case of someone believing their own propaganda. They have spent the last few years convincing themselves that Palin is stupid and uneducated, and they have forgotten that this simply isn’t true. She isn’t dumb. She’s just a down-to-earth woman with a funny accent. And if you keep acting like she is dumb, you’re going to keep making yourself look stupid.”
Susan Duclos, at Wake up America:
“I am beginning to think Palin is deliberately picking parts of history that aren't well known just so she can make fools of the liberal left... they are so easily manipulated into discrediting themselves.”
Dave Blount, at Moonbattery:
“Remember when the clueless propagandists who run the liberal establishment media ridiculed Sarah Palin for being aware that the Boston Tea Party occurred in 1773, not 1776 as historians of Gwen Awful's caliber seem to believe? They are at it again, taking their half-informed pettiness to new extremes of self-parody in their attempts to discredit a voice for freedom... Although Palin was speaking metaphorically, the reference to bells was apt, considering that Paul Revere owned a foundry that made bells. Colonial Americans did in fact use bells to warn against the statists of their day...”
Darleen Click, at Protein Wisdom:
“Wonder how many Lefties in the 57 states will admit they stepped in it, yet again?”
MacRanger, at Macsmind:
“Score another zero for the media rush to judgement about Sarah Palin’s supposed gaffe about Paul Revere’s ride. Over at the Obama Apologetic -- aka The Politco -- resident pinhead Ben Smith... must have been asleep during his history classes as well, along with his buds in the lamestream media and leftwing blogsphere. As others rightly have pointed out, she’s right.”
Paul Zummo, at The American Catholic:
“Palin’s comments are pretty much right on the money. Revere was in fact warning the British, but more as a way of bragging. But hey, it’s so much easier to call Sarah Palin an idiot than bother with facts.”
Dan Riehl, at Riehl World View:
“Palin Gives Media A History Lesson, Revere Warned British And They Retreated... The media and the Left are celebrating as they believe they'e shown-up Sarah Palin. Oops! Turns out she's correct. They appear to be taking their history from Longfellow's ‘Paul Revere's Ride’, which wasn't written until 1860, almost 100 years after the event.”
AJStrata, at The Strata-Sphere:
“Palin was right, every left wing nut who used Longfellow’s poem were wrong.”
Peter Ingemi, at Datechguy's Blog:
“Yesterday morning on Twitter a gentleman of the left was commenting on Sarah Palin's ‘ignorance’ on Paul Revere. I hadn’t seen the clip and was frankly on a writing roll on other things, but the glee in his tweets and the MSM/Left pile on was incredible. Unfortunately for them all Legal Insurrection found a writer who agrees with Palin’s version. His name? Paul Revere... There is nothing less certain than what the MSM/Left believe are facts.”
William A. Jacobson, at Le·gal In·sur·rec·tion:
“Revere did in fact tell the British that the colonial militias, who had been alerted, were waiting for them... I've learned something new today, about Paul Revere.”
Jeffrey Lord, at The American Spectator's AmSpec blog:
“So everybody at Think Progress is having a nice chortle at Palin's expense for supposedly screwing up her history. Or, as Think Progress says, ‘Sarah Palin Flubs American History.’ ... Er…no... Revere didn't hang a solitary lantern in the belfry arch of the North Church. That assignment was given to ‘his friend.’ Why? Because Revere could not possibly be in two places at the same time... Think Progress…well…ah…flubs American history. And these people think Sarah Palin is dumb?”
International Business Times:
“Sarah Palin, the Midnight Ride and Paul Revere in His Own Words...”
Poor Richard's News:
“The mainstream, left-wing media is foaming at the mouth, giddy that Sarah Palin seemed to have re-written history yesterday when she answered a question about Paul Revere. Her answer (which admittedly isn’t exactly well-spoken) is in fact far more accurate than the traditional account which you and I probably heard when we were in 5th grade... ”
Donald Sensing, at Sense of Events:
“Seems that Paul Revere's personally-written account of his famous ride includes his admission that he did, in fact, warn the British that American militia were waiting for them in force.”
Whitney Pitcher, at Conservatives 4 Palin:
“There were no claims by Governor Palin that Paul Revere’s ride had anything to do with the 2nd Amendment as some spuriously claim. She simply indicated the immediate concern of Revere and the colonists. It appears that the media once again fail to grasp the history of our Founding... You may recall that the media were in an uproar when Governor Palin encouraged Tea Partiers to party like it’s 1773, and the media claimed she didn’t know her Revolutionary War history. Oops. Governor Palin stated that this ‘One Nation’ bus tour would, in part, draw attention to America’s founding and history. It looks like she is doing just that.”
“But hey, it’s so much more fun to trash Palin than to actually try to learn anything, isn’t it?”
Steven, at Bucks Right:
“A mass of uneducated rubes, and not only those from the left, mocked Sarah Palin over her statement that Paul Revere warned the British that the Patriots were awaiting their attack. As it turns out, much to the consternation of those whose sole education on the subject is a children’s rhyme, Sarah Palin is correct. That is, if Paul Revere’s own words are to be believed. They are so scared of her it makes me wonder if I shouldn’t support a Palin candidacy.”
Reagan Revolt:
“It looks like the folks at ‘Think Progress’ didn’t think very hard.”
