“Thanks, but no thanks for that bridge to nowhere” Palin keeps saying.

September 10, 2008 | By | 6 Replies More

Chris Matthews is now driving the point home:  Sarah Palin is a pathological liar.   She fully supported the bridge to nowhere, but here she is, seven times, claiming she didn’t support it.

BTW, Sarah Palin claims to be quite religious. See her performance at her church here.  She believes in the Bible as a literal account–historical and religious truth.   She need to go sit in a quiet corner and think of this part of the Bible: the Commandment that prohibits lies like the one she’s currently repeating for personal gain:

You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.

I see that the media is actually showing some courage about this blatant lie.  They should because this is either evil or pathological.  Whatever, Palin is demonstrating that she is not fit for office.

After they grill Palin into premature withdrawal from this campaign (on this lie and Palin’s many other honesty and character issues), they should then move on to ask a few dozen pointed questions to McCain himself. This list includes some petty questions to even the playing field (considering the flag pin bullshit questions repeatedly fired at Obama).  But this list also includes dozens of legitimate questions that go to McCain’s highly questionable character and judgment.   Especially the judgment he is exercising when he continues to allow his partner to stand up and repeatedly lie to the American Public while he stands there with his silly grin.

McCain is in charge of this freak show he is putting on. Bring it on, Media.  Please (in fact, here’s a convert).  Show the people who McCain really is.  We’ve got a country at stake.

  1. I think McCain is already regretting his choice of Palin. I predict she will be the downfall of his campaign. If America elects that insincere duo I hope that the new Large Hadron Collider does create a mini black hole that swallows the Earth because we will deserve it!!

    I tire of this Palin distraction. It is an issue with no meat. The selection of this wannabe tie-breaker of the Senate is an attempt to appeal to that very demographic that believes that a woman's place is in the kitchen.

    The real question is: From what are they trying to distract us?

  3. I just read that Palin is good for distracting from Obama, because he may be a "newbie" on the political scene, but she is even more. It's just more interesting to write about an ex-beauty queen who might become vice president one day. She is the talk of the day, whether you like her or don't. Everybody is talking about McCain and Palin and less about Obama.

    Palin has now shown that she hasn't a clue as to foreign policy, even in a softball interview with Charlie Gibson. This is abysmal and frightening that this person is being offered to lead the United States in complex and dangerous situations. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2008/09/11/sarah-pa

    Dan: I agree that these are distractions. Here’s is what they are trying to distract us from:

    [H]ere’s a thumbnail. The day after Sarah Palin’s historically overrated Edie McClurg With Lying performance at the Republican convention, the Dow tanked 344 points. The day after that, the Republicans got their bounce — an unemployment rate bounce to 6.1 percent — the highest level in five years. Two days after that, Secretary Paulson announced the government’s “deprivatization” of Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae. And yesterday, the Dow dropped another 280 points. All of this within the last seven days. So what are the Republicans and the barbecue media talking about today? A pig metaphor that’s older than John McCain.

    Here's another big lie for the quickly growing mountain of lies. Palin tries to argue that she didn't support billing rape victims for evidence kits while she was mayor. http://www.dailykos.com/storyonly/2008/9/12/17301
