Palin begins Campaign by Lying

Today in Dayton, Sarah Palin began her campaign to be the Vice President by lying to America about her record.

She declared in no uncertain terms that she was against the Bridge to Nowhere. Always had been in fact.

But that turns out to not be the case.

The New Republic has the story

October 2006 she said the following:

5. Would you continue state funding for the proposed Knik Arm and Gravina Island bridges?

Yes. I would like to see Alaska's infrastructure projects built sooner rather than later. The window is now--while our congressional delegation is in a strong position to assist.

In 2007 she said this:

"Despite the work of our congressional delegation, we are about $329 million short of full funding for the bridge project, and it's clear that Congress has little interest in spending any more money on a bridge between Ketchikan and Gravina Island," Governor Palin added. "Much of the public's attitude toward Alaska bridges is based on inaccurate portrayals of the projects here. But we need to focus on what we can do, rather than fight over what has happened."

And in March of 2008, just a few short months ago, her top legal counsel said the following:

Congressional earmarks for roads and bridges have received much attention in Congress and have become a principal impetus for reform. Unfortunately, Alaska has featured prominently in this discussion.

The Palin administration has responded to this unwanted attention in a number of ways. Certain previous decisions concerning transportation earmarks are being re-examined. Currently, the Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities is conducting an audit to determine the status of all recent earmarks.

In addition, the department will have further discussions with local governments that are interested in particular earmarks. This discussion is precipitated not only by the earmark reforms in Congress but by requirements imposed on all states by the Federal Highway Administration.

The department wants to ensure that sufficient funds are available to complete earmark projects and that such projects are consistent with statewide planning and priorities.

I know that isnt the clearest of statements, but where in that does he express regret for anything other than the attention Alaska has gotten recently? Oh, and the title of that article?

My Turn: Palin not abandoning earmarks altogether

Oh and PS, and off topic:

Doesnt support a woman's choice, even in cases of incest and rape. Supported Pat Buchanan and Steve Forbes. Lying about her record. Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you, the Republican nominee for Vice President, Sarah Palin!

That lying cheating bastard.

Yet at precisely the time that Mr. Smith was a guest in what appeared to be a happy household, in April 1979, Mr. McCain accompanied a group of senators on a trip to China. The Navy threw a big cocktail party for the group during a stopover in Honolulu.

''John and I were talking, and then somebody tapped me on the shoulder and I turned around and exchanged a few words,'' said Albert A. Lakeland, then a Senate staff member. ''When I turned around, John was gone. I looked around, and he was making a beeline for this very attractive blond woman.

''He spent the whole party talking to her, and he kept avoiding me when I approached,'' Mr. Lakeland said. After the reception, Mr. McCain and the young woman, Cindy Hensley, went out to dinner, and the romance blossomed.

Mr. McCain continued to pursue Miss Hensley, calling her to keep in touch. When she thanked him for sending flowers that had just arrived (signed ''John'') he said it was nothing. As she discovered years later, they were from another man named John.

Over the next six months, Mr. McCain pursued Miss Hensley aggressively, flying around the country to see her, and he began to push to end his marriage. Friends say that Carol McCain was in shock.

Oh, and she was crippled and addicted to pain medication at the time.

Jesus Swept ticked me off. Too short. I loved the characters and then POOF it was over.

Addiction to pain medication...

I thought John was into that. We know how Cindy just loves her pills.
