Does The Palin Truth Squad Get Per Diems Too?

Do they have uniforms?


Does the Stumblin' Bumblin John McCain Campaign, ala Batman, have a enormous searchlight that burns a gigantic "P" in the sky, the moment they're needed?

Are they hampered (that is, if they have uniforms) by the lack of public telephone booths from getting to the scene of the needed smear or exploitation?

Will they, as the person they will be welding lies and smears for, be able to claim Per Diems during their work?

The Palin Truth Squad?


For a moment, I thought this was some internal mechanism, signaling that Stumblin' Bumblin' Johnny was throwing out a Mea Culpa, and promising to launch what he promised months ago, that being running an "honorable campaign".

Starting with putting a muzzle on Mommy Moose, and her fabricated, phony bold stance on saying "No" to the Bridge from Nowhere (you know, the dreck she's been repeating every day, for the past 10-days; Christ, even the Murdoch Street Journal slapped them down on this).

But, Noooooooo!

The Rove Rats are setting up a propaganda arm, a Ministry of Information, a Rapid Smear Response Team

It's all here, and it gives the list of who these people are

So, let's give'em a hand.

I will defer to someone else, with graphic art abilities, to design an appropriate uniform for the gaggle of prevaricators.

Maybe, we can officially roll them out with this;

Faster than a speeding smear,
More powerful than a pig with lipstick,
Able to heap tall lies in a single call,
Look, up in the sky!
It's a bird!
It's a plane!
It's the Palin Truth Squad!

Yes. It's the Palin Truth Squad, strange visitors from another political party, who came to the campaign with powers and abilities far beyond those of mortal men.

The Palin Truth Squad, who can change the course of media content, bend truth with
their bare hands, and who, disguised as McCain-Palin surrogates, mild mannered supporters for a great swiftboating cause, fights a never-ending battle for non-truth, injustice and the Republican Party way.
Hmmm ... That may be giving them too much respect.

Afterall, Superman is the King, and he wouldn't have put up with their nonsense for very long.

Wait a minute ...

I got it ...

And this will keep it in the species that it belongs.

Mighty Mouse!
Mr. Honesty never hangs around,
when he hears this Mighty sound,
Here we come to save the day!
That means the Palin True Squad is on the way!
Yes sir, when there is a wrong to right,
The Palin Truth Squad will join the fight!
On the sea or on the land,
They've got the lipstick well in hand!

So though she is in danger
We never despair
Cause we know that where there's danger
The Palin Truth Squad is there!
The Palin Truth Squad is there!
On the campaign!
On the stump!
In Alaska!
We're not worryin' at all
We're just listenin' for her call
"Here we come to save the day!"
That means the Palin True Squad is on the way!
(Need help with the tune - go here and sing along)

If it wasn't obvious by now, it's crystal clear that the Rove Rats are firmly in control of Stumblin' Bumblin' Johnny, and what's going down this week will seem like a day-on-the-beach before we see what else they (and the Palin Truth Squad) throw in the road, right up to the minute the polls close on November 4th.

The name Palin Truth Squad should be a national joke.

That's why I started that site -- I'm trying to tell the joke :)
