If lectern barkers at the Republican Convention must wobble left and right to read canned words to us, perhaps better celebrities can be found, true citizens with a memory, then if ever we overcome ‘dis belief, we can enjoy these fibs in a nickle’s theater.
If liar insiders must introduce agenda such as flat-% taxes on broadcast television at a Convention, perhaps we can ask journalists to dig, dig, dig, to shed a tear for us and not merely POW McCain.
If Republican ‘narrative‘ is a lie, and owners know so, where are our police?
Hotline: RNC officials asked all the male delegates to hand their seats to female alternates to provide the impression of vast female support for Sarah Palin during her speech.
Convention Speech Summary: “She misrepresented [Obama’s] record and simply lied about her own, claiming to oppose earmarks that she supported, and dissembling on her $1.5 billion tax hike and record of raising sales taxes by 25 percent in Wasilla.
“Reviewing the McCain Campaign’s bullying, “unprofessional” onslaught against anyone who notes Palin’s extreme positions and dishonest claims, Time‘s Joe Klein urged reporters to face facts:
I hope my colleagues stand strong in this case: it is important for the public to know that Palin raised taxes as governor, supported the Bridge to Nowhere before she opposed it, pursued pork-barrel projects as mayor, tried to ban books at the local library and thinks the war in Iraq is “a task from God.”
“By all accounts, Palin faced a huge task in St Paul. She had to prove she was up to the job of commander in chief.
“She struck out big-time — in a biting speech that showed the only job she was ready for is RNC Chair, another ruthless soldier in Karl Rove’s army.”
