Here is a site that keeps track of all of the rumors being spread about Sarah Palin, just about all of which are vicious lies. The list has 71 entries, and I suspect it will keep growing.
Here is a possibly more authoritative site, the non-partisan FactCheck.org, which also vindicates Palin. Yes, Republicans also twist the truth and unfairly accuse their opponents sometimes, and FactCheck calls them on it, though none of those entries go as far as the anti-Palin entries do. But this is a good site to bookmark and to check throughout the campaign.
Here is a more detailed refutation of the biggest one some people are currently trying.
Bearing false witness like this is just evil.
Certain questions, of course, are valid paths of inquiry. Consider the “Bridge to Nowhere.” Democrats are saying she supported it before she opposed it. I don’t doubt that. Local and state officials are always trying to get federal money. At the end of the day, though, she did kill the project, so as to use the federal highway funds for more worthy projects. But here is the kicker: As Glenn Beck reported last night, both Barack Obama and Joe Biden VOTED FOR the Bridge to Nowhere. They even voted against a counter-proposal to take that money and give it to the victims of Hurricane Katrina in order to build that bridge! John McCain, of course, consistent foe of wasteful spending, fought it tooth and nail.
Do the Democrats really want to get in a war of campaign ads about earmarks?
The Democrats seem to be in a panic, which leads to ineptitude. Turning Sarah Palin’s pit-bull with lipstick joke into that other joke about how a pig with lipstick is still a pig? Do they not realize how this is going to go over among ordinary women who are deserting the Democrats to the Sarah Palin banner in droves?
