( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )

>> Jon: WELCOME BACK.

WE CONTINUE DOMESTIC POLITICS.

NOW WE ALL SARAH PALIN'S NADA

PRESIDENT SHL BID, NOTHING TO

SEE OTHER THAN THIS GUMBO

RALLY.

WHO THE HELL KNOWS WHAT THIS

THING IS ROAD TRIP.

PEOPLE WONDER WHAT IS IT ABOUT

SARAH PALIN?

WHY SO DIVISIVE.

ON FRIDAY SHE WAS AT A BAKERY

IN BOSTON AND OFFERED UP HER

VERSION OF THE FAMOUS MIDNIGHT

RIDE OF PAUL REVERE A MAJOR

LANDMARK OF WHICH SHE HAD JUST

VISITED.

>> HE WHO WARNED US THE

BRITISH, THAT THEY WEREN'T

GOING TO BE TAKING AWAY OUR

ARMS BY RINGING THOSE BELLS

AND MAKING SURE THAT HE'S

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.

( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )

>> Jon: I DON'T KNOW WHAT SHE

JUST SAID BUT SHE APPEARS TO

HAVE TAKEN A WELL KNOWN

HISTORICAL EVENT AND TURNED IT

INTO A FOLKSY TALE.

THERE WAS ENOUGH ADJACENT

THINGS.

WHO REALLY ACTUALLY CARES?

THIS IS THE PART THAT DRIVES

PEOPLE A LITTLE BONKERS.

>> YOU REALIZE YOU MESSED UP

ABOUT PAUL REVERE, DON'T YOU?

>> YOU KNOW WHAT, I DIDN'T

MESS UP ABOUT PAUL REVERE.

>> Jon: RIGHT THERE.

THAT'S THE THING.

THAT'S THE PALIN... YOU DO A

LITTLE OFF-THE-CUFF JUMBO AND

THEN YOU GO ON TV TWO DAYS

LATER AND YOU'RE WEARING

SOMETHING THAT MAKES YOU LOOK

LIKE YOU ROBBED A VATICAN OR

ABOUT TO MARRY JESUS IN LAS

VEGAS.

THEN YOU INSIST THAT YOU

INSIST THAT YOU MEANT TO SAY

YOU WERE RIGHT AND YOU WERE

THE VICTIM OF SOME AWARENESS.

>> IN A SHOUT-OUT GOTCHA TYPE

OF QUESTION THAT WAS ASKED OF

ME I ANSWERED CANDIDLY.

I KNOW MY AMERICAN HISTORY.

>> Jon: IT WAS A GOTCHA

QUESTION.

WHAT WAS THE QUESTION AGAIN?

>> I'M GOING TO REPEAT THE

GOTCHA QUESTION.

WHAT HAVE YOU SEEN SO FAR

TODAY AND WHAT ARE YOU GOING

TO TAKE AWAY FROM YOUR VISIT?

>> Jon: HERE'S A TIP.

IT DOESN'T MAKE IT A GOTCHA

QUESTION, IT DOESN'T MAKE YOU

A GOTCHA QUESTION JUST BECAUSE

IT GOT-YA.

BY THE WAY I THOUGHT YOU SAID

THAT YOU WERE RIGHT.
