“Paul Revere’s Ride,” by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow and Sarah Palin

A very funny take off by Ben Greenman on Sarah Palin's description of Paul Revere's ride is here.

What's more, if you understand the true history of Abraham Lincoln, this take off is even funnier than Greenman likely intended. Actually, read by those suspicious of our great leaders, this is a great spoof on a bunch of them.


  1. This is a not a defense of Sarah. Just asking you to educate yourself a bit.

  2. Palin got it right, and all those smug dumb anti-Palin haters got it wrong, but we won't see any apology of course

    Whatever historical accuracies happened to extemporaneously stammer forth from the mouth of Gidget from Galilee, you can be sure it was purely coincidental and not the result of her academic prowess. One clue to her indisputable cluelessness is when she shamelessly works in a plug for Second Amendment rights. Paul Revere's account shows no anxiety about such matters. He was appropriately concerned with the bigger picture of a looming crisis facing his fledgling nation. If Palin has any Presidential aspirations, she had better start doing the same.

  4. All that was missing was: "They're our next door neighbors and you can actually see Britten from land here in Alaska."
