Liar, Liar, Pantsuit on Fire
Well, Sarah Palin has made a lot of statements since she accepted the Republican vice-presidential nomination. Many of them have either been falsehoods, or misrepresentations of the record. Several reports have said that, although she still comments about turning down the infamous "Bridge to Nowhere," she actually supported it until it was already almost dead in Congress...AND, the state kept the money. Also, as someone who promises to change the way things are done in Washington, she has reportedly taken advantage of many earmarks. The "Washington Post," states that, according to a government watchdog group, while she was mayor of Wasilla she hired a lobbyist to secure almost $27 million in federal earmarks for her small town. Palin and McCain are both bending the truth, or lying, for political advantage. I guess that's what happens when you have a candidate whose foreign policy experience is that she can see Russia from Alaska.
