Will McCain-Palin Lies Hurt Them?

By Robert Parry
September 13, 2008

Despite all the chatter about how “historic” Campaign 2008 has been, it is the McCain-Palin ticket that it is truly testing the limits, not of race or gender politics, but whether the United States is ready to enter into a new dimension of political lying.

Read on.

OBAMA'S LIES CERTAINLY HAVEN'T HURT HIM...

Thanks to the MSM and websites like Consortium. Still waiting and hoping to get a real article from Consortium telling the truth about his long term association with Ayers and Resko. Won't hold my breath!

About the Bridge to Nowhere earmark: according to the Alaska Journal of Commerce (posted Sept. 2007) part of the $223 million (not $233 million) earmark was for a (3-mile) road connecting the airport on Gravina Island to the bridge.

That section of the earmark was for $48 million -- and it kept it's status as an earmark. The other $175 million was un-earmarked but given to Alaska for other major road projects.

The earmarked road has been built but runs out at the beach. It doesn't connect with the island's current ferry service.

So when she says, and other refer to, the "thanks, but no thanks" for the bridge, she should be nailed for accepting an earmark for a Road To Nowhere. And spending it -- irresponsibly, too.

This should be included with her other misrepresentations on the bridge and earmarks.

I smell Karl Rove in McCain's campaign-don't you? If we where to impeach bush and Cheney and show their fellow Republicans telling lies has consequences, they would not have the courage to lie freely and shamelessly. This is the end of American democracy, especially with president McBush-unless America wakes up and alertly watches for liars like McCain and Ms. Sarah. What a pity that Democrats have not done their job to restore the American democracy.

The first anonymous commentator seems very zealous. I think he or she work for McCain campaign that cannot handle the truth. My friends, if someone lies you cannot use that an excuse to do the same, straight talker, mavericks, reformers (McCainians)!!! lie after lie. Power hungry opportunistic as MSNBC commentator put it 911 TM. Enough is enough.

Lies hurt them? That depends on whether enough voters who care about the truth can turn out to overcome the Millions of people (McCain-Palin voters) who are complicit in the lying. They're using the Big Lie idea... saying over and over to make it true. They're counting on the ability to make a lie "true" by repeating enough so that it (the lie) becomes "common" knowledge. They're eyes are certainly wide open about it.

They just don't think it matters as long as they win and rule. That's what's important... not the truth.
Our government-- hell nearly all governments-- practice this policy. The GOP is just taking it to a higher level.

By now most of their voters also know the voting systems have been reliably skewed and that Bush-Cheney didn't come close to winning in 2000 and 2004, and they know that voters are being suppressed a number of ways in key jurisdictions.

They understand that key parts of news & entertainment media is owned and/or managed by friends.

I hope there will be a way to hold the liars legally accountable for lying where it can be proven in some court. I hope news media (individuals and corporations) can be held responsible for lying and for the effects of it.

Individuals certainly can be held liable. Corporate, institutional and governmental bodies must also be held legally responsible. There must be consequences.

There has to be a way to do this or we are absolutely sunk.

What is it about "his long term association with Ayers and Resko" that you think has not been told?

The Ancient Warrior
With the twisted seductive smile of the Joker, the Ancient,battle scarred Warrior hoists himself in true Maverick style, to balance on the tight-rope of Republican reality, while down below a fawning one-eyed media is gorging itself on feast filling Democratic macabre lies. High above the exalting adoring crowd, the Ancient Warrior searches for a willing deputy. The two-faced Jewish harlequin cast off is thrown to the baying wolves of the Party Machine. The Ancient Warrior, in an unforgiving moment of righteous despair, peels off a layer of conscience and sets his sights to the Christian Mormon Right. The Party Machine shudders in genuflecting disbelief and closes God's open door to Salt Lake City. another skin is peeled by the Ancient Warrior. It gets easier, the closer to the Machine. In the peering tight-rope distance a Vision materializes from the frozen forgotten wastes of Alaska. She greases the line with tomorrow's night blubber and slips and slides between the legs of the Ancient Warrior and emerges near side as the Immaculate Male Conception.
Perhaps only an unexpected cough stands between her and Presidential History.
