Truthtelling

So the lies and distortions are revving up. The Republicans are very good at saying something again and again until people believe it is true. This is what Palin and the McCain camp are doing. And the media keeps comparing Palin with Obama when it comes to experience. Huh? This makes no sense. Their experience is completely different. Palin's recent experience: She has already tried using her influence for nefarious reasons. She is under investigation by the state legislature to find out if she fired a public safety commissioner after he wouldn't fire a state trooper who had divorced Palin's sister. And she tried to ban books and get the librarian fired who wouldn't do her biding.

Read more here. She's anti-choice, pro-tax cuts for the rich, and generally a right-wing fanatic. If you want to see Obama's plan for America, go here. Whatever you think of either party, the Dems have always tried to protect the working people, not the Republicans. Maybe once we have a Democratic president, we can work toward more Progressive policies. Right now, we're going backwards so quickly it is difficult to keep up—and easy to be kept down.

By the way, did you see Jon Stewart last night. Priceless. Watch to the end.

I really love that you put the Jon Stewart video in. I love proof positive of the really rude ways and means of the radical right. I copied it into my blog!
