A couple of days ago, I provided my take on the liberal media’s reaction towards the Sarah Palin/Paul Revere situation.
A number of readers took issue with my assertion that Palin had erred in this matter and provided this link in support of the argument that Paul Revere had warned the British after all. Joel J. Miller, who wrote a book about Revere, argues that Palin got the story wrong. Miller writes, “From Revere’s own account, it’s clear that he didn’t fire a shot, he didn’t ring a bell, and he didn’t intend to warn the British of anything.” I would add that Revere hadn’t planned on being captured by the British either.
So Palin made a mistake and let us not pretend otherwise. The point of my post was that when Palin makes a mistake, the liberal media pulls out all the stops. But when Obama errs (as when he said he had visited 57 states) the proverbial cat has caught their tongue.
Now that it has been established that Palin is imperfect I would still vote for her over Obama in a heartbeat. Yet she is not beyond criticism. If she makes a mistake, I will take her to task for it but I will do so with good will. After all, I have defended her on numerous occasions (here, here, here and here) and will continue to do so when warranted. All in all, I see far more positive than negative in Palin.
You could even say that I revere her.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
