Google “Palin lie ‘bridge to nowhere’” and you get tens of thousands of hits, many to left-wing blogs (and even a few “news” articles) telling us that that good woman lied when she said “Thanks, but no thanks” to the “bridge to nowhere.” You see, while campaigning for Governor of the Last Frontier n 2006, that Republican supported the bridge. But, she, like many of us, from time to time, changed her mind. And did so long before she spoke that line at the Republican National Convention in September 2008.
Indeed, the Alaska Democratic Party credited that reformed-minded Republican for killing the bridge.
Now, if changing one’s mind amounts to a lie, well, then Barack Obama is the biggest liar of them all.
When each of his promises reaches its “expiration date,” well, then the Democrat tells another whopper. He lied about using public funding for his campaign. He lied about delivering a “net spending cut.” He lied about going line by line through the federal budget and eliminating programs that don’t work. And on and on it goes.
So eager are some to “get” Sarah Palin that they apply a standard to her which, if applied to any one of their political allies, would make them look far worse, far, far worse than than accomplished conservative.
