    Now, I said:

    Where is the intentional false statement?
    How does this show that Palin knew the one (or both) of the statements was false?

    There's no proof of a lie, there's a difference in the two stories - for all any of us know, the trip could have been made by car, with Palin being worng both times she recited the story. That doesn't mean she lied.

    Its amazing the length you people will go thru to smear people you just don't like. Why does Palin scare you so much?
    the focus here is on the lie

    she indicated her brother's burned foot was treated in canada
    and another time indicated that it was treated in juneau

    and yes, the mode of transport was different in each presentation, depending on the destination

    her brother must have burned his foot a lot

    The focus here should be on who said what. The first quoted text is a direct quote from Sarah Palin. The second quoted text is someone else recounting what Sarah Palin said, and not a direct quote by Sarah Palin. I'm sure you trust the second source implicitly, as it supports your "gotcha" moment. A more honest person would be more prudent.

    Yes... but a contradiction of facts doesn't necessarily constitute a lie.

    Can you show that she intenionally made a false statement?
    Can you show that she knew the statement she was making was false?

    Absent those things, there is no lie.

    By the same logic, the territory that was northern Mexico remained part of that country until the late 19th/early 20th century rather than 1848.
