Moved by the historic importance of Boston as she takes her “summer vacation bus ride”, Palin decided to recognize the Boston’s own Paul Revere and his famous “Midnight Ride” in which he hung two lanterns and rode to Lexington to warn Patriot leaders that the British army was arriving “by sea.”
Palin, however, offered her own take on the revolutionary tale:
PALIN: He who warned, uh, the British that they weren’t going to be taking away our arms uh by ringing those bells and making sure as he’s riding his horse through town to send those warning shots and bells that we were going to be secure and we were going to be free and we were going to be armed.
Not exactly the History Channel’s version of things, but hey, she doesn’t read much as she’s already admitted.
Palin has already portrayed the question put to her as a “gotcha” question. Here’s the actual question: “What have you seen so far today, and what are you going to take away from your visit?”
Yeah – that sure is a trick question…
