Sarah Palin: Pathological Liar

Huffington Post demonstrates that Sarah Palin's pathological liar tendencies continue in her new book.

Wow, what a surprise.

I guess now she'll have to threaten them with a lawsuit, too.

Meanwhile, you can watch this video from two clueless Palin supporters.

Exposing Palin's lying ways is good and all, but her importance is nothing compared to our actual president. Would you care to post about any of President Obama's lies in an upcoming post?

Here's an example from NPR

You seem to be confusing the process of democracy - which involves compromise - with lying.

Miranda doesn't give a good example. However, in regars to civil liberties issues it seems quiite clear that Obama has reneged on many campaign promises sometimes not even bothering to try to push for them. Ed Brayton at has done a very good job chronicling the many examples.

There's no question Obama has reneged on campaign promises. But I don't count a broken campaign promise necessarily as a lie. For one thing, campaign promises are a statement of future intentions, and intentions can change if circumstances change.

BTW, I certainly don't approve of Obama's going back on promises about civil liberties.

Miranda said...

Maybe the following -- unrelated to campaign promises -- is a better example:

Then again, I forgot that this post was supposed to be about Palin.

Jeffrey Shallit said...

Not impressed, Miranda.

Just to take one example: the bill didn't cover illegal immigrants. If your blogger were honest, he would simply admit that.

In any event, it wouldn't surprise me that Obama lied about something, but Palin's lies are of a different order of magnitude.

Miranda said...

"it wouldn't surprise me that Obama lied about something, "

Only someone who never bothered to SEARCH for possible lies coming from Obama could word it like that.
