Listed below are links to weblogs that reference One if by moose, two if by sea [lion]: 'The Midnight Bells of Paul Revere,' by Sarah Palin:



The baggers are going to lose their minds…if they’re knowledgeable. I, for one, am glad he didn’t stop halfway through his ride.


I think the Republicans and Tea Party candidates have finally decided to be honest with the American public and admit that the world of politics is just one big joke.


What makes it extra funny is the truth is that Paul Revere never finished that ride that was named after him. Paul Revere was stopped by a British patrol on his way to Concord. Dr. Samuel Prescott who was riding with him, reached Concord, where he delivered the warning. Blame Longfellow for romanticizing it..but his information was wrong. Its like when people believe the junk about the first Thanksgiving they were taught in elementary school. Somewhere around here I have a book about the myths of American History. When I find it I will post a link.


The left will be disappointed to see that she will not be the nominee for POTUS - big surprise...

Stay tuned. Keep calling her a media whore - that will keep the fire in her belly - hahahaha


Maybe next she will remind us that Washington cut down a cherry tree and had wooden teeth.


Can't wait for the Sarah Palin Facebook explanation of how the media ambushed her and took her out of context.

Palin. Trump. Gingrich.

Where's Dr. Kervorkian when you really need him?

Mike D

So Paul Revere was a fierce defender of the 2nd Amendment, and the founders ended slavery. I've been learning so much from the Republican candidates for president!

BR, your take on Paul Revere is as sketchy as Palins...LMAO


Where's Dr. Kervorkian when you really need him?

Posted by: Itchy | June 03, 2011 at 11:47 PM

Death has exacted revenge on Dr. K. He was undoubtedly a member of the Democratic Party.


I'm surprised the Progressives are not falling at her feet after this blunder. Thinking back when Obama said there were 57 states we Progressives were out there adding stars to the flag and telling our children that Obama was correct. This falls way short of that blunder. Bet Mr. Hood didnt give that blunder headlines here.


And good to see youmade it back BlackRhino. Sarah tried her best to hold ALpha Joanie's water but kept spilling it. Give her few tips for the next time you go away.

Puget Sound Blathers

Black Rhino doesn't stay long before screwing up and having to scamper away.
One of those more hat than cattle types. LMAO....


PS - Hat tip for your quote; "All hat and no cattle" - ROFLMAO ! That sums up the usual suspects.

Joanie is trying to emulate Jeanine Garofalo. If you haven't heard her - check out this piece of work on YouTube. She has the master baiter of race and the alpha thing going on. If you corner her for a debate, she and Joanie sound quite a bit alike. I just happened to come across this last night.


After his ride didn't he start a company called RevereWare that sold plastic kitchen cookware?


Here's the difference, of which I'm sure you are fully aware.

If or when Obama said something about 57 states we all know that it was a misstatement. We all know that he is an intelligent man who knows there are 50 states. (After all, he was born and raised in the 50th state.)

But when Palin was talking about Paul Revere, she starts spouting nonsense and you can clearly tell that she doesn't have a fucking clue what she's talking about.

The sad thing is she seems to believe that she is smarter than the people asking her questions, whether it's Katie Couric or a local TV reporter in Boston or just some regular citizen at a bakery.

But every time she opens her mouth she proves beyond all doubt that she is the dumbest person in the room, regardless of the room.

She needs to either never speak off the cuff and hide her stupidity. Or just realize she's a ditz, which could be kind of endearing.

But she wants to ramble like a moron and then try to act like she's intelligent.

Does. Not. Work.

Puget Sound Blathers

Itchy is right, she needs to travel with a teleprompter. Seems to work well for our current President.

Ray good catch.

KS, you are correct. In terms of celebrity twins separated at birth that Joanie and Jeanine are sympatico.

Except Jeanine does have talent.


You and the filthy liberals who read your blog pretend that they are somehow "fighting the power", that they are "standing up" for whatever it is that liberals support. The reality is that the left has complete control over American socierty. The entire media is pro-left and Hollywood is a hive of marxist radicals and anti-american militants. Our colleges are entirely staffed by the most far-left atheist hatemongers imaginable. Most federal departments are breeding grounds for communism and anti-american activity, especially State department and the Education deparmntent. State dept is infiltrated by islamists and is under foreign influence, with most employees being ideologically close to Weather Underground.

Also, the FBI and other law enforcment organizations are used not to catch criminals but to harass and threaten conservatives. Emails sent by conservatives are hacked, the accounts of conservative organizations are "randomly" audited and false charges are made and later droppes, all this done by stalinist thugs in the employ of the liberal leadership. Violence and vandalism against conservatves are common and on the increase (I had 17 McCain lawn signs stolen from my yard in 2008 and eggs were thrown at my house on three separate occasions; the police of course "couldn't do anything", mostly because our chief of police is a democrat). Deplorable actions by deranged individuals, like the murder of the abortionist Tiller, are linked to all conservatives and then used to dehumanize conservatives.

You use your media allies to attack and defame every potential conservative presidential candidate years before they even consider running. And most incredibly, you seem to think that the "moneyed interests" are somehow in the conservative camp. The fact is that most banks give money to democrats and are run by democrat loyalists. Most corporations like GE, GM and Chrysler are run by socialist toadies hand-picked by the liberal elites. Leftist profiteers like Soros and Buffet operate above the law and then divide their criminally-obtained billions to trusted socialist lackeys like you. Current estimates are that Obama will raise one billion dollars for his reelection camoaign. A billion dollars for God's sake! And most of this money comes from the big corporations and taxpayers (recycled through public sector unions). What little money the GOP nominee can raise will have to come from real people who work hard for that money, not faceless and godless institutions or union thugs. Running against the democrat machine is like trying to outbid Bill Gates in an auction.

Not only do you have these advantages, but thanks to your ingenoius election-fraud strategies the result of the election has probably already been decided. the key here is the legendary absentee ballot. These are always found, after the election, in sufficient quantities to push the losing democrat over the 50% mark. this is why you get so angry when some attempts to ban the use of absentee ballots are made; you fear losing your ability to manufacture votes. The photo-ID requirement is also poison to the most important democrat voter group, illegal aliens. These always vote, and democrats try to block all attempts to prevent this massive fraud.

In short, you are an agent of a illegitimate domination machine, not someone "fighting the power". You are the power. Please just admit that you are the KGB to Obama's Stalin. That would be refreshingly honest. Unfortunately for you dictatorships are beginning to fall, one after the other (see: Egypt, Tunisia, Libya). And when the american public rises up, you, like these other dictators will live the rest of your life in exile in Saudi-Arabia (I hope you like warm weather). I personally promise you that I will work my ass off to support the American/GOP nominee for president in 2012, and afterwards to make sure all democrats and their co-conspirators (this includes you) are tried for their crimes. Purging all leftists from positions of power will be impossible, but you can be sure that prominent democrats like you WILL be held accountable.


Umm, wow PTBC. Paranoid much?

Ray - you do know Tupperware is the plastic stuff and Revereware is the copper bottom cookware many of us grew up with when we learned how to cook?


Actually, Palin is no more qualified to be POTUS than Obama was. Obama never bothered to correct his gaffe about visiting 57 states with one more left to go, which is disturbing in itself. Palin opens her mouth without engaging brain and whenever she does it, the numbnuts in the media love to jump all over her, but half of the time they get it wrong.

Obama demagogues and trash talks with reckless abandon and like Palin opens his mouth without engaging the brain. He is also a cheap shot artist.
With that said, Paul Ryan would make a good nominee for Vice President - he has already smacked down Obama in an exchange about Obamacare -where the POTUS showed him by signing this POS into law and then BO commenced to deliver another cheap shot and demagogue the Ryan economic plan and now his lies about it are starting to be exposed.

Katie Couric was mediocre for giving the news while wearing their biases on her sleeve - (just like Dan Rather did) as is Brian Williams, who needs a personality implant and biased in that he hides stories - he'll talk about Chris Christie's helicopter ride, but keep his piehole shut about Weiner's alleged twitter hacking - which has been determined to be a coverup. Newscasters are a mediocre lot - the best one on is Sheperd Smith, followed by Bret Baier - the most professional in that line of work.

PTBC - you were on borderline of civility, but if you engage in defending your positions - thats cool, You are running the risk of lowering yourself to the level of Joanie, BR, Zim and a number of leftwing haters/ ideologues here by commenting and leaving - if thats what you end up doing.


You think I wasnt civil enough but Im mad and Im tired of liberal crap. Everything you said about Obama is true.
Is there a minimum number of times I have to write something for you to take me seriously?


Meow = of course I know the difference, but does Sarah Palin? I bet if I told her that Paul Revere invented Tupperware she would spout it as an absolute fact.

The Republican mob is a joke, so far.

Mitt Romney whines about how much of a failure Obama is, but I don't see him coming up with any kind of intelligent plan to solve our problems.

Newt was house speaker in the nineties when the Congress saw fit to shut down the government for three weeks (he's hoping people will have forgotten by now.)

Palin and Trump are media whores.

Thanks to all these clowns and jokesters the credibility of the Republican party is pretty much in negative numbers. Too bad the leadership doesn't seem to get the message.


It can stated less forcefully and still get that message across. In the world we live in, the extremists (left and right) are not taken very seriously. The more facts you have in your argument, the more seriously you will be taken by most.

There are more extreme leftists on the blog, so judge for yourself on how seriously they are taken outside of their echo chamber.


Ok lacking concrete facts, the media automatically assumes Palin's motives include gaining political power. They have completely overlooked the fact that Palin already has more than enough influence and political power to participate in (and possibly prevail) in our national debate. That this influence is not subject to constraints from either politician or the media is unprecedented. And dangerous.
I believe Palin realizes that real change is almost impossible within the existing political system. It could be argued that right now, Sarah Palin has more ability to influence political outcomes than does the president of the United States. So why should she play by rules that have been set up by those already in power, rules that are designed to keep them in power? Rules that place her at a great dis-advantage.

San Diego

Thanks for the common sense definitions of the cookware, Meow, and let's face it. the media has already poisoned the well for Ms Palin. She's just a figurehead and an ATM for the GOP.
PROUD, you're a great America. I hope you'll come here more often. There are friendlies were most of the time.
Did anyone know that Tupperware makes plastic bullets that are actually lethal and also vests that withstand a 9mm bullet. The company sells more armaments than food storage containers, and is owned by a very conservative family out of Georgia. The Tuppers have long financed conservative think tanks and other political operations. It's ironic, but they have probably given $ to Ms Sarah.

saint rudy

WOW, I thought you had to attend The Conservative University of Joseph Gobbels to get an education like this!!! With great minds like these, is it any wonder Adolph Hitler came to power through (LEGAL?] elections?


Wow, she is hot in that pink sweater! Yowza!! Got my vote!


Sarah Palin IS hot but she's Playboy quality not White House quality plain and simple.
She is above: Al Gore, Scott Ritter, John Edwards and the Werner tho.


Itchy, misstatement or blunder, no difference. But what you wont see from any conservatives is them trying to change what Palin said and defend it. Like you just did for Obama.

One other thing itchy, i kind of find it interesting that you just decibed Alpha Joanie to a tee in that post. Good job.


that should be "described" alpha Joanie to a tee.


"more hat than cattle". That was good. But Black Rhino was a regular when i first came to this blog late last year. Then he disappeared and Sarah came around. Alpha Joanie must have a revolving door for those who hold her water. And honestly, still havn't heard one reasonable thing from her yet. Its all about the rich and how they control the world. Wonder if she is the teacher or the student with autism.


Wow, one crazy statement form Palin and the crazy cons come out of the wood work.

Puget Sound Blathers

Black Rhino
You sport about a 7 and a 3/8s, correct?
Now that we established your lack of substance, I want to make sure we at least got your headband sized correctly.


Yes Putz, you have me nailed.

How've ya been? Last I heard you were out of the Blog biz.

Puget Sound Blathers

wrong again, Black Rhino.
I was asked to reconsider. I did.
Simple as that.

So, at this point we've established your no fan of Sarah Palin even if you were also ignorant of the facts surrounding Paul Revere's historic ride.


Yep, Hood's no dummy. Having you guy's around brings the eyeballs.

And no, I'm not a Palin fan for Prez. But I sure love her work. And Revere never quit, he was arrested. There's a bit of a difference.

Puget Sound Blathers

The baggers are going to lose their minds…if they’re knowledgeable. I, for one, am glad he didn’t stop halfway through his ride.

Posted by: BlackRhino | June 03, 2011 at 10:44 PM

so what exactly did you mean then that you are glad he didn't stop halfway through his ride?


Thin Putz, very thin.


Nothing like throwing in an obfuscation as some kind of litmus test like Revere didn't complete his ride or constitutionally - was the fact that one slave in the early days of this nation originally counted as 3/5 constitute racism ?

Substance is typically foreign to the discussion. No wonder we are on the verge of financial collapse...


KS, what on earth are you talking about?

Ya see Putz? Hood knows what's good for his blog.

Puget Sound Blathers

Black Rhino.
i can see you are in full skedaddle mode. why dontcha go the 'full joanie', call me and KS nazi's and be done with it.
i gotta party to attend. i'll check it out in the morning.


Com' on. I never called you a Nazi. Strange? You call me a skedaddler, then skedaddle. Oh well, Next!


PROUD TO BE CONSERVATIVE is a sock puppet. A quick search shows his screeds have actually appeared, word for word, in other forums. It is nothing but propaganda and lies crafted to manipulate. You should be ashamed, PTBC. Get the fuck out.


Thanks Clearwater, we’ve been looking for this tard.

J.T.M.(PROUD TO BE CONSERVATIVE), you don’t know the trouble we have gone through. Please, put down the banana and come with us.


as a lib pundit said, Palin will not run, she will simply continue to make "more money than God ever intended her to have" (Fox News contract, speaking fess , etc ).. we could be wrong...my belief that she wil not run is based on my belief that she is merely profoundly stupid, but not a moron....she may actually be a moron, in which case she will probably run.......


Boy, another flub from Palin. This is from the internet:


Well, you know, I'm glad to be here with my Protect Family Bus Tour ...well..here you know, in Mount Vernon. Where it was landed, Mount Vernon was where Columbus landed, uh, came to from Israel and discovered America. And some even think he may have helped teach the Indians how to kill off the dinosaurs..and so that is why George Washington, as you may know, built this lovely house near the Mountain called Vernon so all Indians would remember to thank the White Man.



Leave it to itchy to blow Blackrhinos statement of the crazys all the hell.


Maybe you have scared off PBTC with all that bluster and tough talk from Scratchy, Clearwater and BR. You all project yourselves as sock puppets just as much as PBTC did and with the rest of your bluster.

Carrying Joanie's water is becoming more evident and your steadfast support for our economic demise. thpfft...


Bill Maher, "I Think Anybody Could Be President In This Dumb Fucking Country"

Isn't Bill one of Alpha Joanie's heros on the left.

BlackRhino? Sparky? Sarah? Itchy? Are you gonna Progressives going to defend Bill or sit this one out. We all know Joanie will be out in support of Bills outrageous comment. I think this statement says alot as to why we Progressives voted in Obama 2008. Will you make the same misstake again in 2012?


To your great disdain, yes we can.


None of my heroes are on TV.
