A Cup O' Kapeng Barako

 

 

T hey laughed at her.  They ridiculed her.  They called her an "idiot." 

 

Is Sarah Palin really an idiot for flunking grade-school American History? And an irreversible idiot at that, for reversing the reason of Paul Revere's historical midnight ride? 

 

She said daw in Boston to the laughter and ridicule of know-it-all reporters, and smug late-TV comedians, and twits on twitters that, "Paul Revere warned the British that they weren't going to be taking away our arms, by ringing those bells and making sure as he was riding his horse through town to send those warning shots and bells that we were going to be secure and we were going to be free."

 

History tells us, if history is to be believed, that the reason of Revere's ride was to "alarm the countryside, stopping at each house, and when he arrived in Lexington about midnight, he approached the house where fellow rebels, Adams and Hancock were staying, to warn them that the Brits were coming to arrest them."

 

NOT to warn the Brits that "they weren't going to be taking away our arms," as Ms. Palin said.

 

And, it's true that shots were fired and bells were rung, but not by Revere.  So, Ms. Palin got Revere's ride on "reverse," so to speak.  Paul Revere made his famous ride NOT to warn the Redcoats, but to warn the colonist rebels that the Brits were coming. 

 

You betcha, she fumbled again.

 

A CCORDING TO OBAMA, THERE ARE 57 STATES: Now check this out: When Barack Hussein Obama was campaigning for president, he said that they were "57 states" in the United States of America!  As y'all know, there are only 50 states. 

 

Even, I, know that!  And I am no Harvard graduate, like Mr. Obama.

 

So, who's the bigger irreversible idiot then? 

 

Sarah Palin or Barack Obama?

 

During a fundraiser for Democrats, President Obama also managed to mangle America's Declaration of Independence, saying: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that each of us are endowed ... with certain inalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness," omitting three key words.

 

On purpose? 

 

These three missing key words were: "by their Creator," located where I had the ellipsis in the quote above.  Perhaps, Mr. Obama misread his teleprompter, ha?    

 

Even, I, know that!  All people are "endowed" by our "Creator with certain inalienable rights." 

 

True Americans --- no matter what race, creed or religious belief, or origin of birth --- all know that.  Those words, "by their Creator," are important key words, penned within that sacred declaration by Thomas Jefferson and approved by the Founding Fathers.  For they all believed in a Creator, a Christian Creator, that is. 

 

To quote America's Declaration of Independence, and omit our "Creator" from it, is IDIOTIC, I think.  This nation was founded, based on a Christian religion.  And that's a fact that cannot never be altered by anybody, even by BHO.

 

A LONG LIST OF IDIOTS: Another politician who should be called an idiot for mangling and re-writing American History is Rep. Michele Bachman of Minnesota, who told a crowd in New Hampshire that the "battles of Lexington and Concord" took place in New Hampshire

 

Those battles were fought in Massachusetts, as we all know. 

 

Ms. Bachmann should be laughed at, too.  Isn't she also a presidential wannabe?  Why is it that only Sarah Palin is laughed by twits and "know-it-alls"?

 

According to The Washington Post, "a search of the Congressional Record and C-SPAN archives," turned up at least 30 instances of politicians mangling history and the words or deeds of the Founding Fathers.  Some even invent words that were supposedly said by those Fathers.

 

Like this quote from Rep. Virginia Foxx of North Carolina during a speech in the halls of Congress, where she was quoted, "As Jefferson said, the price of freedom is eternal vigilance."  According to Monticello Researchers, Thomas Jefferson never said those words.  They were attributed to him long after he had died.  Now, can you imagine that?  Jefferson speaking words of wisdom from his grave, per this idiot.

 

Even Sen. Orrin Hatch, a veteran senator from Utah, was quoted to have said, "President George Washington said that the right to keep and bear arms is 'the most effectual means of preserving peace.'" 

 

Senator Hatch, just like Governor Palin who was ridiculed and laughed for "reversing" the reason of Paul Revere's midnight ride, has gotten those words of George Washington in reverse, too.  Washington's true words were: "To be prepared for war is one of the most effectual means of preserving peace."

 

Ha!  I tell ya....

 

The list is long of these politicians, who had either mangled the words of the Founding Fathers, or had re-written history, or had reversed historical events.  According to research and fact checks, the list of political idiots goes on and on.  Too numerous to lay them all out in this column.

 

Dear Readers, I have a question to ask.  May I?

 

Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who's the fairest of them all ... among America's political idiots?  My answer is: Sarah Palin.  She's fair to look at.  Who's yours?  Tell me please, so I, too, can laugh at that idiot of yours.  JJ
