Reasons Sarah Palin Scares Me: Part 2-The Lies

Oh, the lies...

I could write a whole post on the lies. Hell, I could write a whole post about EACH lie. And, trust me that would keep me very busy for a long time.

Journalist Andrew Sullivan tried to keep up with all the lies she has told since she was picked as John McCain’s running mate. He ran a series on them called “The Odd Lies of Sarah Palin”. He had very clear ground rules for what would qualify as a lie: “Remember: we are not including contested stories that we cannot prove definitively one way or another or the usual spin that politicians use, or even hypocrisy or shading of facts. We are merely including things she has said or written that can be definitively proven as untrue, by incontestable evidence in the public record.” (From his blog, The Daily Dish) Here is a roundup he did on November 15, 2009. As of June 27, 2011, he is still counting. (Note: I tried to find a list of all of them together for weeks, but I have been unsuccessful.)

She is so notorious for her lies that noted writer and filmmaker Geoffrey Dunn wrote a book released this year called “The Lies of Sarah Palin: The Untold Story Behind Her Relentless Quest for Power”. Yes folks, she lies so much, it warranted a whole book written about them. A WHOLE BOOK!!!

There are days that I wonder if she is aware of the existence of the internet, YouTube, television, video tape, newsprint, the printing press. Does she not know that in this day and age, when you are in the public eye, you are being recorded for all time?
