The Lies of Sarah Palin: Serial Denier
Oh, those gosh-darn liberal bloggers! They won’t let a gal get away with stretching the truth even just a little bit, don’t-cha know. Or even 32 documented times, in recent memory. Not that we here at Blog for Iowa weren’t impressed by the extremely coherent way Sarah Palin announced her (for whatever reason) resignation from the elected position of Governor of Alaska.
But now that Palin is “back” in the public eye, Andrew Sullivan of The Daily Dish has undertaken the enormous task of vetting Palin’s public claims while asking, “What wouldn't Sarah Palin lie about if she felt she had to?” Well, I don’t know either, but I’ll defend her and hazard a guess that perhaps she can’t think of the truth fast enough.
A sample or two:
Palin lied when she said the dismissal of her public safety commissioner, Walt Monegan, had nothing to do with his refusal to fire state trooper Mike Wooten; in fact, the Branchflower Report concluded that she repeatedly abused her power when dealing with both men.
Palin lied when she denied that Wasilla's police chief and librarian had been fired; in fact, both were given letters of termination the previous day.

And then watch this interview with Palin’s daughter’s baby daddy, Levi Johnston, as he explains why he feels that Sarah Palin is not qualified to be V.P. or POTUS. Cringe.
