Stephen Colbert Reenacts Sarah Palin's Version of Paul Revere's Ride (VIDEO)

Stephen Colbert set out to defend Sarah Palin's version of Paul Revere's famous ride on 'The Colbert Report' (Weeknights, 11:30PM ET on Comedy Central). That version had Revere "ringing those bells and making sure as he's riding his horse through town to send those warning shots and bells."
"For those who say it's implausible for Revere to have ridden a horse while ringing a bell and firing multiple warning shots from a front-loading musket," Colbert said, "Prepare to eat historical re-enactment."
He then used an amusement ride horse to see how easily he could reload his musket while riding, which as it turned out was nearly impossible. Of course, there was one other problem Colbert was facing as his ride came to an end.
