McCain Touts Pork Barrel Queen As Reformer

This video from TPM is great:



What can you say about John McCain when everyone across the nation is pointing out the lies his lobyist bought'n'paid-for campaign is putting into Sarah Palin's lipstick place holder?

The McCain camp has made her signature issue shutting down the Bridge to Nowhere. But as The New Republic put it today that's just "a naked lie." And pretty much the same thing has been written today in Newsweek, the Washington Post, the AP, the Wall Street Journal. Yesterday even Fox's Chris Wallace called out Rick Davis on it. (Do send more examples when you find them.)

On earmarks she's an even bigger crock. On the trail with McCain they're telling everyone that she's some kind of earmark slayer when actually, when she was mayor and governor, in both offices, she requested and got more earmarks than virtually any city or state in the country.

Think about that. On the stump, not a single word that comes out of her mouth -- or not a single word that the McCain folks put in her mouth -- is anything but a lie.
McCain's speech writers keep having her saying she said "No thanks!" to the "Bridge to Nowhere" - a straight up lie - and the reality is that she took every single penny of the money and spent it elsewhere.

I'll say one thing about the McCain-Palin Campaign:
They are consistent... Liars.


But that is just what we have come to expect from Bush and neocon minions in the GOP. It is all they have left to offer America.

"Neocon minions..."

How can any liberal blogger NOT love that phrase? LOL!

It is the little things that make the difference... "A twist of the knife as you turn a phrase." thanks.

They're allergic to truth.

So many lies and so much hypocrisy that it would take a lifetime to refute them all one-by-one. That's quite a strategy.

I agree charliehiphop. But it is important to kick back their big lies in their faces.
