Sarah Palin And Michele Bachmann On U.S. History

While visiting Boston’s historic Old North Church, where the famous “One if by land, two if by sea” lantern signal sent silversmith Paul Revere on his even more famous “Midnight Ride” to warn of the approach of the British, 1/2 Ex-Alaska Governor Sarah Palin was asked “What did you learn on your visit today” by a local journalist.

Palin proceeded to give a rambling and incoherent answer that seemed to be about gun control: “He who warned the British that they weren’t going to be taking away our arms by ringing those bells and, um, making sure as he’s riding his horse through town to send those warning shots and bells that, uh, we were going to be secure and we were going to be free.”

To her credit, Palin did correctly state that the British were planning to confiscate arms and ammunition stored by American rebels. She also scores a point for identifying Revere’s mode of transportation as a horse. But he didn’t “warn the British” of anything – he alerted American rebels of the British forces’ approach by shouting “the Regulars are coming!”, referring to the British “regular army” troops.

Apparently Palin was in the same history class as Tea Party favorite Michele Bachmann, who told an audience in New Hampshire their state was the site of the famous “Shot Heard ‘Round The World”. Unfortunately for Bachmann the clash between British troops and American rebels she was talking about happened in Massachusetts at the towns of Lexington and Concord.

Palin claims the question "What did you learn on your visit today" was a “shout-out, gotcha type of question’’ from the "lamestream media", possibly because it involved giving an answer.

Weiner Tweeted His Wiener

Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY) admitted Monday that he lied about his Twitter account being hacked, and confessed that he did send an image of his bulging shorts to a young woman via the social networking Web site. Weiner said he has had online “relationships” with “about six” women over the past three years, and engaged in “inappropriate conversations conducted over Twitter, Facebook, e-mail and occasionally on the phone, fax, by telegram, courier, carrier pigeon, pony express, those blinking light things the Navy uses, hand signals, smoke signals, and several times using a shiny piece of metal reflecting the Sun.”

Weiner said he will not be resigning his office, leaving his wife, or even feeling particularly bad. “I mean, c’mon, you saw the picture – wouldn’t YOU want everyone to see something like that?”

Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY) prepares to make a clean breast of the fact that he sent an image of his erection over the Internet. And speaking of "breasts", a new image of his buff and tan naked torso has now surfaced.

Palin’s Bus Tour Is About America

Sarah Palin and her family are on a bus-tour vacation (legally paid-for with PAC money) across America which she claims isn’t political and isn’t even about her. That’s why the bus has her name on the side of it in three-foot-high letters, and the words “We the people” superimposed over what looks like the U.S. Constitution, and the words “One nation under God with justice and liberty for all”. Because everyone on vacation in a huge bus has a gigantic custom-made billboard glued to it as they drive through key primary states and meet with important local conservative political organizers.

The Sarah Palin "One Nation" tour bus makes a pit stop.

Is It Weiner’s Wiener?

Did someone hack Rep. Anthony Weiner’s Twitter account and post a picture of a penis, or did Weiner actually tweet his own wiener? Considering this story was broken by Andrew Breitbart we should probably give Weiner the benefit of the doubt. Because even though the Democrat congressman from New York has the name “Weiner”, there’s little doubt Breitbart is a dick.

Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY) uses some metrics to defend himself against charges he tweeted his wiener. "Only I tweet his wiener" said his wife Huma Abedin.
