Since arriving on the scene a couple of weeks ago, GOP VP Nominee Sarah Palin has consistently denounced the "Bridge to Nowhere" and has claimed that she was against earmarks from the federal government. Yet fact checkers have repeatedly debunked those claims--citing her public support of the infamous bridge and her acceptance of hundreds of millions of dollars for the bridge and in earmarks. Yet she and the McCain campaign continue to make those claims, and the American people are buying it. And when people try to call the campaign on it--the McCain camp cries sexism.
It constantly astounds me how blind and uninformed we can be. And it's scary too. There is so much at stake in this election and the idea that the GOP may actually win this thing because people believe Republican propaganda is alarming. It happened in 2000 and it happened in 2004 (i.e. they magically turned John Kerry's Vietnam service into a negative when, G.W. never even served).
Thoughts on the election? Comments on Palin's avoidance of Sunday morning political shows and interviews? Nauseous over the claims of sexism?
