Wow.

FORMER ARKANSAS GOV. MIKE HUCKABEE: Palin "got more votes running for mayor of Wasilla, Alaska than Joe Biden got running for president of the United States."

THE FACTS: A whopper. Palin got 616 votes in the 1996 mayor's election, and got 909 in her 1999 re-election race, for a total of 1,525. Biden dropped out of the race after the Iowa caucuses, but he still got 76,165 votes in 23 states and the District of Columbia where he was on the ballot during the 2008 presidential primaries.
So basically it is a blatant lie? Even if you divide 76,165 by the number of states, 23, it is still 3000 something.

i'll say one thing.. and this is my IMO.. She did not once point out last nite what she was going to do if she were VP. She just mocked/attacked Obama basically and along with the 15 min talk about her family and the McCain is a POW crap that seems to be the only point the Republicans are stressing as if this is all that matters.. Isn't that the point of this speech is to say what they stood for and what they were going to do if elected? I know it's crazy thought but aren't you as a nominee supposed to bring up these things/points?
hey if i were on the fence about who to vote for this untold information surely wouldn't help at all.. Just saying..

Uncle Jed doesn't know how to use the Internetz yet, no big deal. He's been having too much fun in the ce-ment pond. To be fair, though, the Huckster was the only one who didn't get nasty and tried to refrain from personal attacks. I'll applaud him that much, at least.

But she's a very tolerant person, I'm sure she doesn't discriminate against soccer moms.

Yeah I agree.

So... 1525 is not greater than 76,165 or even 3311 (76165 / 23). Meaning it was a blatant lie. Is that right??? Or am I not seeing something I should be?

One thing we've learned, Republicans LOVE fuzzy math...

I would LOVE to see 2861, diamond or any other of our fine conservative FYM friends try and rationalize this.

Could it be that Palin's narrative isn't quite level with the truth?

Naaah, couldn't be...

All I heard last night were put downs. The speech that left me shaking my head the most was from Rudy Giuliani. When did 'America's Mayor' become a jerk? The whole tone last night just made me sad.

"Just from what little I’ve seen of her and Mr. Obama, Sen. Obama, they're a member of an elitist-class individual that thinks that they're uppity," Westmoreland said.

Asked to clarify that he used the word “uppity,” Westmoreland said, “Uppity, yeah.”
The Congresswoman from Georgia likes her black men when they're nice and quiet.

To be fair, I had him confused with another one from GA I saw yesterday, so this one is in fact, a man.

But he can be a bitch too if you'd like.
