Straight Talk

Here’s a little Straight Talk for you since the media seems reluctant to go here. John McCain is a liar. Sarah Palin is a liar. There, I said it.

Palin did NOT oppose the Bridge to Nowhere – she supported it, then opposed it when it became politically untenable.

Palin did NOT come up with the idea to put the jet on EBay – Alaska already had a policy of doing that with big ticket items.

Palin does NOT have national security cred just because Alaska is close to Russia

Palin’s son is NOT shipping out today, 9/11.

Obama did NOT request $1 billion in earmarks last year

Obama does NOT support sex ed for 6-year olds. He supports sexual predator prevention for
young children.

Obama did NOT call Palin a “pig”.

Palin DID charge rape victims for their own rape kits.

Palin DID request $750 million in ear marks while governor.

Palin DID fire Wasilla’s librarian.

Palin DID try to ban books in the public library and local stores.

Palin DID fire the man who would not fire her sister’s ex-husband.

Palin WAS cautioned by a friend (a former US Attorney) – that she should apologize for “overreaching or perceived overreaching” in trying to get the ex-husband fired.

Palin WAS cautioned by a judge to stop disparaging the ex-husband, and that encouraging her daughter to disparage the ex-husband could constitute “emotional child abuse.”

Palin DID cut funding for a teen mothers shelter.

Palin DID charge Alaska a per diem lodging expense while staying in her own home.

Palin DID promote the commander of the Alaska National Guard after he made damaging comments about her to the press. He’s got nothing but glowing praise for her now.

Palin DID say “I've been so focused on state government, I haven't really focused much on the war in Iraq. I heard on the news about the new deployments,” when asked about sending more troops to Iraq.

Palin DID leave Wasilla with $22 million in debt, after inheriting ZERO

Palin DOES believe in abstinence-only education.

Palin DID say about being mayor of Wasilla “It's not rocket science. It's $6 million and 53 employees." So much for exec experience there.

Palin DID say about the phrase “under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance “If it was good enough for the founding fathers, its good enough for me and I’ll fight in defense of our Pledge of Allegiance” The pledge was written in 1892 (over 100 years AFTER the Founding Fathers), and amended with “under God” in 1951 (nearly 200 years after the Founding Fathers.)

Palin DID call Hillary Clinton a "whiner"
