"You realize that you messed up about Paul Revere, don't you?" "Fox News Sunday" anchor Chris Wallace asked the potential 2012 presidential candidate.
"I didn't mess up about Paul Revere," replied Palin, a paid contributor to the network.
"Part of his ride was to warn the British that were already there. That, hey, you're not going to succeed. 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 added. "He did warn the British."
Palin, who again said she has not decided whether to run for president, was asked about the Revolutionary War hero during a stop Thursday in Boston on her East Coast bus tour.
"He who warned the British that they weren't gonna be takin' away our arms by ringing those bells, and makin' sure as he's riding his horse through town to send those warning shots and bells that we were going to be sure and we were going to be free, and we were going to be armed."
Palin's brush with the nation's history came toward the end of her "One Nation" bus tour that generated intense interest as she traveled from Washington to New England. Along the way, she steadfastly refused "a million times" to say whether she was running for president.
"I'm publicizing Americana and our foundation and how important it is that we learn about our past and our challenges and victories throughout American history, so that we can successfully proceed forward," Palin said in the broadcast interview. "It's not a campaign tour."
And was she leaning toward or against running, Palin was asked?
"Still right there in the middle," she said.
There's no ambiguity about the interest Palin generates, a point that doesn't sit comfortably in some quarters of a party without a clear front-runner to face President Barack Obama next year.

'For those who haven't heard rightwing extremist Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli has subpoenaed all of the documents related to climatologist Michael Mann's state-funded research while Mann was at the University of Virginia (italics mine):
In papers sent to UVA April 23, Cuccinelli's office commands the university to produce a sweeping swath of documents relating to Mann's receipt of nearly half a million dollars in state grant-funded climate research conducted while Mann-- now director of the Earth System Science Center at Penn State-- was at UVA between 1999 and 2005.
If Cuccinelli succeeds in finding a smoking gun like the purloined emails that led to the international scandal dubbed Climategate, Cuccinelli could seek the return of all the research money, legal fees, and trebled damages....
Given Cuccinelli's political lunacy leanings, it's not just climatology we should worry about. What about someone who is also doing stem cell research? Or sexually transmitted diseases? The latter is not far-fetched. In a field I work in, one project addresses sexually transmitted diseases in teenagers using some creative methods. It's an important study, but every single colleague I know has said that if conservative fuc%ing morons like Cuccinelli were to find out about it, they would start complaining--the funding agency showed some guts and took a chance on this.''For those who haven't heard rightwing extremist Virginia Attorney General... more
A recent analysis by Roger Simon of PJTV Media maintains that Obama is showing signs of mental illness. A wide variety of commentators have observed that Obama displays severe narcissism. Obama is conceited, and he is demonstrating a serious disassociation from reality.
Obama sees himself as the greatest man to be president in all time. He truly believes it when he said "we are the ones we have been waiting for," and "this is the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and the planet began to heal." He believes that he can do anything he pleases and the people will love him for it. Obama plans to radically transform this country and go down in history as, in his mind, the greatest ever. Obama is clearly disconnected from reality.
Obama is, according to Newt Gingrich, “potentially the most dangerous (president), because he so completely misunderstands reality.” Gingrich was referring to Obama’s inept and weak stance on missile defense amongst other things. Even Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has said that Obama is an amateur; so much for wowing the world. Obama lives in an alternate universe where he treats our friends poorly and expects our enemies to change and become our friends. Here’s hoping that the voters help to connect this president back to reality in November.A recent analysis by Roger Simon of PJTV Media maintains that Obama is showing signs... more

Dear Pat Robertson,
I know that you know that all press is good press, so I appreciate the shout-out. And you make God look like a big mean bully who kicks people when they are down, so I'm all over that action. But when you say that Haiti has made a pact with me, it is totally humiliating. I may be evil incarnate, but I'm no welcher. The way you put it, making a deal with me leaves folks desperate and impoverished. Sure, in the afterlife, but when I strike bargains with people, they first get something here on earth -- glamour, beauty, talent, wealth, fame, glory, a golden fiddle. Those Haitians have nothing, and I mean nothing. And that was before the earthquake. Haven't you seen "Crossroads"? Or "Damn Yankees"? If I had a thing going with Haiti, there'd be lots of banks, skyscrapers, SUVs, exclusive night clubs, Botox -- that kind of thing. An 80 percent poverty rate is so not my style. Nothing against it -- I'm just saying: Not how I roll. You're doing great work, Pat, and I don't want to clip your wings -- just, come on, you're making me look bad. And not the good kind of bad. Keep blaming God. That's working. But leave me out of it, please. Or we may need to renegotiate your own contract.

The dumbing down of America began with Ronald Reagan who made idiots feel good about being idiots. Reagan proved that not only was intelligence not required to be President, it might even be a handicap.
Reagan proved that any politician ignoring the 'idiot' voting block [the GOP] imperils his/her political future. Thus, Sarah Palin, who became an expert on Russia by observing its coast line from across the Bering Strait, is assured a growing constituency: the growing legion of idiots!

In a move certain to fuel the debate over Obama’s qualifications for the presidency, the group “Americans for Freedom of Information” has released copies of President Obama’s college transcripts from Occidental College. Released today, the transcript indicates that Obama, under the name Barry Soetoro, received financial aid as a foreign student from Indonesia as an undergraduate at the school. The transcript was released by Occidental College in compliance with a court order in a suit brought by the group in the Superior Court of California. The transcript shows that Obama (Soetoro) applied for financial aid and was awarded a fellowship for foreign students from the Fulbright Foundation Scholarship program. To qualify, for the scholarship, a student must claim foreign citizenship. This document would seem to provide the smoking gun that many of Obama’s detractors have been seeking.
The news has created a firestorm at the White House as the release casts increasing doubt about Obama’s legitimacy and qualification to serve as president. When reached for comment in London, where he has been in meetings with British Prime Minister Gordon Brown, Obama smiled but refused comment on the issue. Meanwhile, White House press secretary Robert Gibbs scoffed at the report stating that this was obviously another attempt by a right-wing conservative group to discredit the president and undermine the administration’s efforts to move the country in a new direction.
Britain's Daily Mail has also carried the story in a front-page article titled, “Obama Eligibility Questioned”, leading some to speculate that the story may overshadow economic issues on Obama’s first official visit to the U.K.
In a related matter, under growing pressure from several groups, Justice Antonin Scalia announced that the Supreme Court agreed on Tuesday to hear arguments concerning Obama’s legal eligibility to serve as President in a case brought by Leo Donofrio of New Jersey. This lawsuit claims Obama's dual citizenship disqualified him from serving as president. Donofrio’s case is just one of 18 suits brought by citizens demanding proof of Obama’s citizenship or qualification to serve as president.
Gary Kreep of the United States Justice Foundation has released the results of their investigation of Obama’s campaign spending. This study estimates that Obama has spent upwards of $950,000 in campaign funds in the past year with eleven law firms in 12 states for legal resources to block disclosure of any of his personal records. Mr. Kreep indicated that the investigation is still ongoing but that the final report will be provided to the U.S. attorney general, Eric Holder. Mr. Holder has refused to comment on the matter.

I must have missed a few subtle literary points in college when I was taking a Charles Dickens seminar.
I missed the spot where Fagin, in Oliver Twist, is wearing a gigoondo yarmulke.
Also, blasting right by yours truly—alas, never the best of students—is the part where Fagin abstains from eating pork chops because they're not kosher.
Who knew that Fagin was an observant Jew?
And I must have skipped the part where Fagin—going all bi-polar—talks to himself in fractured Hebrew and intones: “Never trust the goyim.”
Last night I was flipping through my 150 channels—you can get obese watching all the cooking shows—when I stumbled on this new adaptation of Oliver Twist.
I had no idea I had access to Al Jazeera. It was kind of scary, I mean I know the Arab world with its state controlled TV and film industries is a sewer of Jew-hatred, but this Fagin is pretty darn close to the image of the evil Jew pushed by the Nazi propaganda machine.
He's not just the Jew, he's the devil.
This Fagin is such a leering, salivating monster that I wouldn't be surprised if, in next week's exciting installment, he molests a few doe-eyed kids then slaughters them so he can use their blood to bake matzo. Believe me, the Blood Libel is alive and well in the Arab world, and fast making headway in oh-so-civilized Europe.
Imagine my surprise when the station ID popped up and I learned that this was not Al Jazeera, but PBS.
Okay, I really wasn't surprised.
And I wasn't surprised that this grotesquely anti-Semitic Oliver Twist is a British production. Most sane people recognize that Britain, in about 25 years, will be ruled by Sharia and cheerily Judenrein.
Say hello to the happy-go-lucky 7th century.
European Jew-hatred is so common, so darn fashionable that Charles Dickens' Oliver Twist is now part of the arsenal to make Jew-hatred accept able.
Director Coky Giedroyc and writer Sarah Phelps are the chief criminals in this repulsive exercise in sophisticated Jew-hatred. They will, no doubt, argue that they are restoring a fresh perspective to Fagin's Jewishness. This is the corrupt academic language of deconstruction, where “texts” have no real meaning, where all interpretations are equally valid.
Naturally, it's a one-way deconstructionist street.
You can bet your bottom dollar that no Muslim would ever appear in such a dark light in a BBC production. Because the Islamists would issue a fatwa and Giedroyc and Phelps would be living under 24/7 protection.
No doubt, this dynamic Jew-hating duo would hunker down with The Koran and deconstruct it in order to prove that beheading is not terribly sporting.
But it's open season on Jews because, well, what are we going to do but protest in print, be dismissed as right wing nut jobs, or y'know, pushy Jooz.
Question: why does PBS exist?
Oh right, desperately needed government support for people—and by people I mean losers—who can't make a living in the business like yours truly.

Freedom of speech is dead at current. Al Gore's libtard island at 188 King St, SF, is very much intact.
When I posted articles critical of current's bias, I was banned.
They then posted lies that they allow all types of discussion,
and then locked the discussion thread. Unbelievable cognitive dissonance.
When an antisemitic person repeatedly wrote vile things against the Jews and Israel she was allowed to keep her account and current's article scoring put her on the front page. We have clear cases where articles by these antisemites jump immediately to the front page without a single view.
The fascists at current can lie all they want, they can defend all they want, but the truth is in their actions, and their actions were to 1) ban someone who spoke out against them 2) to lock up a discussion thread critical of them so no one could give dissent 3) to delete entire accounts and all articles from people critical of them.
Yes, that's right, we have documented accounts where current deletes entire accounts and all articles by that person, and when questioned says "oops". I guess you have to retype in all your posts again. Freedom of expression my ass. We'll delete all your content and apologize later.
Keep up the fight. Post articles, vote up the good, vote down the bad.
ask people for reliable sources and citation whenever they say b.s.

The national ballot results are in, and let me tell you--I am disgusted and ashamed of my fellow "Americans". Ballot measure after ballot measure, bigotry won by a narrow margin.
How dare anyone who voted against same-sex marriage call themselves Americans? Or those voting to keep same-sex couples from adopting children? How DARE you?
How dare you burn our Constitution and Bill of Rights, how dare you toss aside everything this country is supposed to stand for? Whatever happened to equality under the law? What deranged, hateful idea got into your heads that you had the right to control the personal relationships of others? Whether it be in the name of God, family, or tradition, the real reason was hate.
America is not a free country, it seems, and only half the country desires it to be free. The rest of you, it seems, would prefer an ultra-right wing country where "freedom" is only allowed for the Christian, conservative, traditional minority.
If marriage is not a right guaranteed to all consensual adults, who are engaged in legal relationships (remember, folks, homosexual relationships ARE legal!), then it is not a right for you, either. Supporters of the bans against gay marriage, I'm sure you would gladly give up your 'privelege' to be married, then? Until you've earned it as a group?
You bigoted, hateful people amaze me...
Do any of you faux Americans understand the company you keep, and the damage you have done?
Many of you whined and said that you weren't against gays, but you were for children and families. You used children for your hateful, bigoted politics. Any idea who else did this?
That's right, Adolf Hitler.
Adolf Hitler, too, claimed to want to "defend" marriage. He himself used children for his own political gains, and perhaps that's where the campaigners for these freedom-killing measures got their strategy: you can convince a population of anything, he said, by doing it in the name of the children. He brainwashed children into singing for his cause (sound familiar?) and used the cause of children and family as a cover for his policies.
Hitler, too, hated gays, though he took it a step further and killed thousands of them because they didn't fit into his narrow worldview. It was done in the name of family, children, and traditional "morals".
When 52% of the people get to tell the rest how to live their lives, you know freedom is dead. I only hope that someday, 52% of the people strip you of your rights to be married. You deserve it.
I truly hope there is a hell sometimes. The national ballot results are in, and let me tell you--I am disgusted and ashamed of... more
