Of course, Colbert is always ahead of the curve and he totally gets it. He even picked up where Palin & Co. left off after they were foiled by the Wikipedia nerd police:

Unfortunately, the hardcore fact addicts at Wikipedia have undone the changes and locked Paul Revere's page. Which is why I want all of you to go to the Wikipedia page for "bells" and make sure it reads, "Bells: Used by Paul Revere to warn the British that hey, you're not going to succeed in taking our guns. USA! USA!"

And in an act of devotion not dissimilar to a Palin supporter, Colbert Nation responded within a minute.

Watch the whole clip below which culminates in Colbert showing exactly how Paul Revere could have accomplished riding a horse, firing and reloading a musket, and ringing a bell all at the same time.

Just like Palin. You can NEVER admit you were wrong, even when the whole world knows you are talking crap.

Palin's quote was just another brick in the wall piece of evidence that she is an idiot.

No gotcha question here.

They're all like that.

Sara's a joke, and the whole world knows it.

Just look at the part of the country that believes she's brilliant! Same dummies who still think the President isn't a citizen.

Colbert was hilarious!

Everyone knows, Palin screwed it up AGAIN!

Gotcha question?

LMAO!

She's a trip! They all are.

Like all of the righties here, she was wrong, and refuses to admit it.

Rather than linking to a repeat of a news show you wouldn't/didn't understand ... how about, in your own words-no spoon feeding, explain where she was wrong?

I already know the answer ... but none of you have the testicular/ovarian fortitude to repeat it because you realize how completely stupid the reasoning is.

But, I'll gladly give you the opportunity to embarrass yourself. Again.

That the left's PDS is sophomoric and spiteful, fueled by fear, and devoid of integrity?

I agree then.
