The Lies To Nowhere Report

In case you need help sorting through the lies and fabrications coming from Stumblin' Bumblin' John McCain, and his Vice Presidential running mate, that he chased "to the gates of the Arctic Circle", Mommy Moose, aka Sarah Palin, the good folks over on Think Progress have been diligently busy.

Lies To Nowhere: The McCain Campaign’s Inaccuracies On Palin’s Bridge To Nowhere Support

From the day he nominated Gov. Sarah Palin (R-AZ) to be his vice presidential running mate, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) and his campaign advisers have been repeating the lie that Palin opposed the infamous Bridge to Nowhere. (In fact, Palin repeatedly expressed strong support for the project.) ThinkProgress has been keeping track of these lies and compiled them here. Please let us know if we’ve missed any, and you can comment on this document here.

The McCain campaign, however, continues to repeat the lie. ThinkProgress has put together a Lies To Nowhere report, documenting every time the McCain campaign repeats the myth that Palin opposed the Bridge to Nowhere. So far, we have counted the lie being repeated at least 18 times:
Here's a nugget;
Campaign Manager Rick Davis: “Congress didn’t beat back the ‘bridge to nowhere.’ … That funding was in the grant, and she said, ‘I’m not spending that money.’ And what they did — they took a $500 million bridge and she turned it into a $2 million ferry. And that’s what she did on her own without any help from anybody else.” [Fox News Sunday, 9/7/08]
Check it out, and, remain vigilant - If the Dead Campaign Express comes rolling through your area, keep track of the lies and fire them off to Think Progress's "Lies To Nowhere Report".
