A matter of distrust

I would probably need to update this site about eight hours a day - essentially full-time work - to keep track of all the lies and half-truths and garbage coming out the McCain-Palin campaign.

But, unfortunately, I have to earn a regular paycheck, among other daily obligations. Not to mention, there's plenty of other bloggers and sites out there doing a much better job than I at putting this farce into perspective.

So, at some point in the near future, I may place a brief moratorium on posts about Palin. I'm still thinking this over.

However, until that time, here's a few links of interest:

Size (of crowds) doesn't matter, except when it does.

About a year ago, McCain didn't seem to think much of the experience of mayors and governors. But like any true man of honor and conviction, he changed his mind as soon as it became politically expedient.

More about book banning. Palin is lying about this, too.

Palin supports another Bridge to Nowhere. This one only has a price tag of about $73 million.

The Boston Globe is all over Palin today. But what do they know? Damn liberal media. How dare they do the vetting that McCain didn't have the time or gumption for.

In addition to the Bush Doctrine, Palin also appears to be woefully ignorant about the federal budget in general and entitlement programs specifically. But, hey, she's just a hockey mom. Sort of like the female version of Unfrozen Caveman Lawyer (pictured above).

And from a good friend, here's a link to James Fallows' take on Palin's interview with Charles Gibson. "Sober, dispassionate and dead on," in the words of TNC.
