Rumors and lies ...

First, let me provide an updated corrected version of a rumor I helped spread yesterday. Sarah Palin, it turns out, was not a member of the Alaskan Independence Party. Her husband was. Here are some of the details. Of course, the fact still remains that the head of the party said Sarah Palin had been a member, although he may have misremembered.

The GOP is accusing the DNC and Obama supporters of running false insinuations against Sarah Palin. This is a bit rich considering what McCain and GOP supporters are running against Obama. This is just one example of the type of rumors and accusations that they are circulating - this one through a paid online banner. The fascinating thing is that a close examination of the photograph reveals that it was doctored to add a cigarette in Obama's mouth.

This does not justify unwarranted and unjust attacks on Sarah Palin, but so far, the respone to her have been rumors which have largely been substantiated. Methinks the GOP doth protest too much!
