God I love that woman!!! This country desperately needs her as President to scare the shit of it!!! Two Bushes weren't enough...Coolidge wasn't enough, it took Hoover to goose the people into voting for FDR and keeping him in power....we need that woman badly!!!
As far as Revere is concerned, it took until a college history class before we learned that Revere spent that night in jail, after his clumsy horse clattered across his first bridge...that ride was actually made by Charles Dawes...but Longfellow apparently couldn't find a rhyme for Dawes, so he replaced him with Revere...so we could have,
"Listen my children and you will hear
Of the midnight ride of Paul Revere"
...it could have been,
"Listen my children because
you will hear of the midnight ride of Charles Dawes"
...you can see the problem.
I came away thinking that if there was so little respect for scholarship and accuracy and truth, what else were we being lied to about?
