What is this? "All lies all the time"?

Seems that Governor Palin is even lying about the teleprompter when she spoke at the RNC.

Of the claim that the teleprompter failed and she spoke on her own, it seems there is a powerful rebuttal:
This struck many of us -- who, as she spoke, followed along with her prepared remarks, and noted how closely she stuck to the script -- as an unusual claim. (Especially those of my colleagues on the convention floor at the time, reading along on the prompter with her, noticing her excellent and disciplined delivery, how she punched words that were underlined and paused where it said "pause," noting that "nuclear" was spelled out for her phonetically.) [...]

"The teleprompter did not break," wrote Politico's Jonathan Martin. "Sarah Palin delivered a powerful speech last night, but she did not 'wing it'..."
Thanks to Hunter for this update. Palin claimed last night to have been winging it. I guess they can't help themselves.

Who on earth thinks they represent "change" from the Bush-Cheney regime of lying? Or is their a collective wish for "sweet little lies" (and big, nasty sour ones)?

Fleetwood Mac offers commentary for us.

Update: Check out McCain's pointing the finger at Obama when his own position goes further than Obama's and without any nuance or careful evaluation. Plutonium Page lays the hypocrisy bare.

I know this is slightly off topic, but I just had to share. I just heard Hilary Clinton say on Good Morning America that the topic should not be "who are you for" but "who is for you." I hope those women who supported her and are now looking to vote for McCain actually listen to what she says and internalize it.

Have you heard about this one?

Palin said, "To any critics who say a woman can't think and work and carry a baby at the same time, I'd just like to escort that Neanderthal back to the cave."

On the one hand she supports the teaching of creationism in school, and on the other, she cites an earlier form of human being... Flip-flop.
