I’m usually more pumped about hitting the treadmill in the morning, because my self-bribe is listening to the Adam Carolla podcast.
However, I’m dreading it today because it looks like I’m in for a drive-by take on “Revere-quiddick.”
(Earlier this week, guest Dana Gould complained bitterly that Sarah Palin broke some kind of news-to-me rule for, er, daring to talk in public on the same day Romney announced his candidacy. That’s all you’ve got, huh? Palin is now breaking “rules” that never existed before.)
Anyhow, the Revere stuff was Friday. Today it’s Monday. Tween time, folks have been checking primary sources and, well, I doubt the folks at Ace Broadcasting spend a lot of time at Legal Insurrection…
…as pointed out at Conservatives4Palin, Revere did in fact tell the British that the colonial militias, who had been alerted, were waiting for them.
Palin’s short statement on the video was less than clear; that sometimes happens but the part of the statement which has people screaming — that Revere warned the British that the colonial militias were waiting — appears to be true.
I agree, she didn’t express herself that smoothly (again).
Then again, you’ve got the Smoothly Express in the White House right now.
