Worse than lying...

I’m so tired of this stuff I told myself this morning that it’s not worth the effort, and that I need to focus on more positive things. Hadn’t planned on anything political for a while. Then I made the mistake of checking Factcheck.org and found this nugget

http://www.factcheck.org/elections-2008/mccain-palin_distorts_our_finding.html

McCain will say anything, and will lie about anything, to win. According to Factcheck, McCain even has an ad misrepresenting the sites checking. Read the whole article but, check out this highlight. There’s another equally bad example in the story.

With its latest ad, released Sept. 10, the McCain-Palin campaign has altered our message in a fashion we consider less than honest. The ad strives to convey the message that FactCheck.org said "completely false"attacks on Gov. Sarah Palin had come from Sen. Barack Obama. We said no such thing. We have yet to dispute any claim from the Obama campaign about Palin.

They call the ad "Fact Check." It says "the attacks on Gov. Palin have been called 'completely false' ... 'misleading.' " On screen is a still photo of a grim-faced Obama. Our words are accurately quoted, but they had nothing to do with Obama.

Almost makes me want to cry. Literally.

At least CBS made them pull the commercial with the Katie Couric clip.
