Nothing, perhaps with the exception of progressives' misplaced disdain for Andrew Breibart lately, is more symbolic of the MSMs dishonesty when it comes to painting Sarah Palin as the bumbling idiot that she most certainly is not. This portrayal of supposed conservative ignorance is nothing new as we have witnessed from Dan Quayle's never uttered words about speaking Latin in S. America to progressive generated, media propelled caricature of Rep. Michele Bachmann, who actually has more intellect in her pinkie than 90% of Democrats in politics or political punditry.Listen, my children, and you shall hear
Of the midnight ride of Paul Revere,
On the eighteenth of April, in Seventy-Five;
Hardly a man is now alive
Who remembers that famous day and year
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
In the latest episode of this nearly daily charade, the MSM got on the case of Palin for saying that Paul Revere's famous ride was as much to warn the British as it was to warn patriots. At least, this time I can say that it was not a made up statement as in the case of "I can see Russia from my house" farce. However, my charity towards MSM stops there as they got egg on their face once again.
As Boston University history professor Brendan McConville grudgingly admitted, Palin got her facts correct.
Andrew Malcolm of the L.A. Times also backed up Sarah's account.
So does a cursory search on the internet, were the members of the press professional enough to research.
Sometimes I wonder what the media feeding frenzy would be like if a conservative claimed anything like visiting 57 states, nuking Pearl Harbor, or made demonstrably false statement as to where his/her parents met.
The lack of truth and veracity of those who criticize her and other conservatives is appalling and, as I said, testament to their complete lack of integrity and moral compass.
