Did John McCain Pick Sarah Palin Because they're BOTH BIG FAT LIARS???

I guess McCain will do ANYTHING to try to win and no longer gives a hoot about his own integrity. I read somebody say the other day that maybe he just didn't know what was going on and his campaign was doing all these dirty tricks and making him say those lies that are so easily found out... but if that WERE 1, that sure would make him a senile and toothless old man, eh? I think he knows and he doesn't care, even if he's called on his lies, because he thinks people are stupid.
Here's the View on the disgusting lying ad about Obama. Pretty amazing when it takes the VIEW to hold McCain's feet to the fire.
Sarah Palin lied about the Bridge to Nowhere. She FINALLY admitted to Charlie Gibson that she didn't say "Thanks but no Thanks". She was LYING about it. Notice she says it's not inappropriate to be asking for earmarks.
Here's Eric Cantor getting hauled over the coals for lying about Palin's Bridge to Nowhere crapola.
Pay attention to this. Palin took the money and KEPT IT.
What gets me is that his campaign has apparently decided that lying about stuff and not ever admitting you're lying is what he needs to do to win... A
To top it off, McCain spokesman Brian Rogers said this to the Politico about the increased media scrutiny of the campaign's factual claims: "We’re running a campaign to win. And we’re not too concerned about what the media filter tries to say about it.”
They even lie about the size of the crowds coming out to watch them.
Sept. 13 (Bloomberg) -- Senator John McCain has drawn some of the biggest crowds of his presidential campaign since adding Alaska Governor Sarah Palin to his ticket on Aug. 29. Now officials say they can't substantiate the figures McCain's aides are claiming.
McCain aide Kimmie Lipscomb told reporters on Sept. 10 that an outdoor rally in Fairfax City, Virginia, drew 23,000 people, attributing the crowd estimate to a fire marshal.
Fairfax City Fire Marshal Andrew Wilson said his office did not supply that number to the campaign and could not confirm it. Wilson, in an interview, said the fire department does not monitor attendance at outdoor events.
Get that? The McCain campaign LIED about getting estimates from the fire marshall.
In recent days, journalists attending the rallies have been raising questions about the crowd estimates with the campaign. In a story on Sept. 11 about Palin's attraction for some Virginia women voters, Washington Post reporter Marc Fisher estimated the crowd to be 8,000, not the 23,000 cited by the campaign.
Palin lied about going to Iraq. She never stepped foot in Iraq. I guess we'll hear about that the same way we heard about Hilary Clinton's lies about Bosnia, Right?
Here's what the Obama campaign has to say about it.
To: Press Corps From: Obama Campaign Re: Unraveling the myth of the Straight Talk Express
Since naming Governor Palin as their Vice Presidential nominee, the McCain campaign has distorted, distracted, and outright lied to the American people about her record in a desperate attempt to hide the fact that a McCain/Palin Administration would be nothing more than a continuation of the failed Bush policies of the last eight years.
Indeed, today alone we learned that the McCain campaign’s claim that Governor Palin traveled to Iraq is a lie. In fact, she didn’t cross the Kuwait border. We learned that the McCain campaign is desperate enough to tell the press phony crowd numbers, which they 0ly attributed to local elected officials and the United States Secret Service. And we learned that despite Senator McCain’s claim that Governor Palin is a fiscal conservative, spending actually increased during her brief tenure as Governor.
Here are the facts. Governor Palin supported the Bridge to Nowhere, requested hundreds of millions of dollars in earmarks, never visited Iraq, increased spending as governor, increased taxes as governor, and was about as successful selling that luxury jet on eBay as the McCain campaign has been selling her reputation as a reformer. Oh yeah, and the gas pipeline she touts won’t be usable for at least a decade, if it’s completed at all.
While the media is slowly starting to call the McCain campaign on their dishonest tactics, McCain’s staff boasts that they don’t care. As a McCain spokesman told the Politico, “We’re running a campaign to win. And we’re not too concerned about what the media filter tries to say about it.”
