    Hey you the one that brought it up and started comparing the Palin family and Obama family so it is hardly a silly question.

    But I guess since you refuse to answer then you admit you are at fault..

    Re: Palin's book goes rouge on some facts

    Palin: .....not "often" going for the "high-end, robe-and-slippers" hotels.

    Fact Check: ...travel records indicate she usually opted for less-pricey hotels while governor,...
    So she's telling the truth?

    PALIN: Boasts that she ran her campaign for governor on small donations,

    Fact Check: Of the roughly $1.3 million she raised for her primary and general election campaigns for governor, more than half came from people and political action committees giving at least $500,.......
    So Again, she's telling the truth? Tose sound like mostly small donations to me.

    PALIN: Says Ronald Reagan faced an even worse recession than the one that appears to be ending now, and "showed us how to get out of one. If you want real job growth, cut capital gains taxes and slay the death tax once and for all."

    Fact Check: The estate tax, which some call the death tax, was not repealed under Reagan and capital gains taxes are lower now than when Reagan was president.

    Economists overwhelmingly say the current recession is far worse. .........
    This one is the best of all. Palin didn't say that Reagan repealed the death tax.
    Reagan DID cut the capital gains tax. and since the book was written months ago, it is entirely debatable which recession is worse.

    Looks like the fact checkers need to be checked.
    From the ashes.

    No she did not. She says that Katie Couric was chosen by the McCain campaign on the grounds that she would probably give a more lenient interview because Couric had the lowest ratings of all the journalists at the time and that the interview would boost Couric's morale and give her a little bump to her possibly slumping spirits about being the lowest rated.

    None of that is untrue.

    Oh this is just going to be a field day.

    Seriously?

    Funny thing is, next Friday, she'll have the #1 best selling non-fiction book in the country. And nothing the AP twists will change that.
    1) Al Franken also had a best selling book. You are going to take that seriously too?

    2) Michael Moore won an Oscar. You are going to take that seriously too?

    3) The 911 Truthers have a movie out. OK, OK, it's not going to win any awards, but it certainly has a cult following. Would you take that one seriously?

    4) For the purposes of a quick poll, let me add Palin as choice number 4.

    5) Let me also throw in "None of the above".

    Who would you take seriously? Me? I think they are ALL idiots. I pick number 5. But you? Let me guess. Is it the one who has the (R) next to the name? How about that. I guessed right.

    Well that is quite a list to go over. Having other more important things to do than researching all of this out, I will assume most if not all of it is fair. I'll guess there is a good chance she is as contradictory and hypocritical as the next guy.

    The problem is we can compile an equal list for any of these people, and spend days meting it out to find the truth. Sorry, I just can't make the time. I am going to accept that you trust the AP on this one.

    But keep in mind, despite their flaws, I am going to support those who stand the best chance of running the nation the way I think it should. Right now, for me, it's not Palin. I want Romney to be my next President.

    You will find that when Palin Derangement Syndrome flares up around here, there is no reasoning with that crowd. It's best to jsut be ready to hand them a napkin so they can wipe the mouth foam off when the flare up subsides.

    But Jall....can you blame us. She provides countless hours of comic relief and glee to us. Even the prospect that the GOP might nominate her in 2012 makes me downright giddy. Sorry if I can't help the foaming.

    For being classless and having no regard for at least maintaining the illusion of being substantive and truthful?

    Yeah, I can blame you for that.
