Sarah Palin Has Decided To Keep On Lying aBout the Bridge To Nowhere

Amazing! You remember I said yesterday that Jeanne Cummings of Politico said on the Diane Rehm show that the McCain campaign had acknowleged that she DID support the bridge and then changed her position... but she had no concrete source for it? I looked and looked and cannot find where McCain said they were lying. I don't see, frankly, how they CAN say they're lying, it only makes them look bad because EVERYTHING they're saying lately is a lie. But a lie it is.

And she continues to lie.

Palin has come under fire in recent days for misleadingly saying she told Congress “thanks but no thanks,” refusing an earmark for a bridge to a sparsely inhabited island in her home state. Independent groups and media fact-checkers have said Palin advocated for the federal earmark before opposing it, only ended after Congress had essentially killed it, and kept the $223 million for the appropriation after the project was killed.

What did she do with that money?

Palin had cut the refrain from her speech during her three-day visit to Alaska. But she came back to it today, citing it as an example of earmark reform she and McCain would push for in the White House.

“I told Congress thanks but no thanks to that Bridge to Nowhere -- that if our state wanted to build that bridge, we would build it ourselves," she said.

What a LIAR! Does it make no difference to her that EVERYBODY KNOWS SHE IS A LIAR? 

Palin did not deviate much from the speech she had given the last two weeks on the road with McCain. She reiterated a line that she put the governor’s luxury jet on eBay. While accurate, the jet wasn’t sold on eBay.

But why change a good lie with the truth?

Nevada Lt. Gov. Brian Krolicki said on stage that 10,000 people were in the crowd, but parks officials said the pavilion held only 3,500 people. The audience consisted of significantly more women than McCain-Palin joint rallies over the last two weeks, and Palin addressed her historic candidacy head on.

Again, is there anything that is dang well TRUE that the McCain camp is running on ? They both have NO character.
