Sitting here wondering if John McCain just forget to tell the VP vetting team he said this– or if they already knew and covered it up…

?Maybe if we had done it right, maybe some of that money would have gone to inspect those bridges and other bridges around the country,? McCain said at a campaign stop in Ankeny, Iowa on Aug. 4, 2007. ?Maybe the 200,000 people who cross that bridge every day would have been safer than spending $233 million of your tax dollars on a bridge in Alaska to an island with 50 people on it.?

Sarah Palin’s Exploitation of 9/11

On September 10, 2008 By

Tomorrow is the 7th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. It’s also the day Sarah Palin’s eldest son Track leaves for the Middle East.

And, as you’d expect, Sarah Palin has some big plans.

No, she won’t be quietly memorializing the nearly 3000 people who died in the attacks that day (or the 4155 US soldiers who have died in the war that followed).

Get off your ass, Hillary. We […]

Ted’s doing a new conference now announcing big, across-the-board budget cuts.

You can watch the news conference on ONN or online at

So far it looks like he’s not planning on cutting education, mental health or prisons.

More to follow.


Just got the press release. The plan is to make “$201 million in agency cuts and $339 in accounting moves” – basically a “4.75% across-the-board reduction for all agencies”

Is anyone out there still trying to push that “tax and spend liberal” line? Matt? Mark? Anyone? Anyone?

Labeling the same old Bush-McCain policies as change? Still the same old policies.

Putting lipstick on a pig? Still a pig.

Latest Sarah Palin Lies

On September 10, 2008 By

Additional recent Palin stories I haven’t had time to write about…

Sarah Palin continues to claim she cut unnecessary state government spending as Governor of Alaska but it turns out she ripped off Alaska’s taxpayers by billing the state a travel-related per-diem for 312 nights she actually spent at home.

Also, Sarah Palin continues to lie about her stance on the “bridge to nowhere” – which she originally supported and campaigned for – until the scandal broke and congress removed the earmark.

Hardball did a great little short showing all of the times she’s repeated this lie since the […]
