|This first bus design|
was dismissed by Palin as
too dull and family value-y
The whole Paul Revere thing is a debacle. In summary, Palin is saying that by Paul Revere warning that "the British are coming" he was in essence warning the British who were already there that more British were coming to fight, but that the Americans were armed and ready to fight for their freedom and that they were armed and that they meant business and weren't going to give up being free, or bearing arms. Did she mention that early Americans were bearing arms? Oh, and all this just shows that the 2nd Amendment (which, p.s., was written after the Revolutionary War) was meant to insure citizens the right to bear arms so they would always be prepared to fight for freedom.
Upon being told that she was not actually correct in her account of events, Sarah dug in and insisted that she was right about Paul Revere and that she knows her American History. Sigh. But, I guess you have to admire someone who won't let the educated writings and evaluations of past historians distort her interpretation of events.
I have a slight suspicion that this tour might also be a "Beers of the United States-Drink Your Way Coast to Coast" kind of party bus thing as well. If the president thing doesn't work out, she can then get endorsements for all the beers she's tried. Come on! Based on the stuff she says, it sort of doesn't sound so out there, does it? No, it doesn't.
A beer fest would certainly account for her other brilliant statement which was to say that any time there is a government mandate, it's not good. I am almost certain that there is no way she knows what the word mandate means. As I suggested to Mom in A Million, whose post is where I saw the information, maybe she thought that the government was trying to support man dates. You know she is not on board with man dates. Do you think Sarah knows that laws, like say the 2nd Amendment, are um, like government mandates?
Also, it is my understanding that Palin is the gal who believes that schools should be teaching creationism and abstinence, not science and sex education. Was she planning on getting that to happen via a volunteer system? I am pretty sure she wants the government to insist.
