It would be a useful test case to see if it spreads. Especially compared to the similar "whitey" video rumor.

So if the fabricator had not over loaded it,
then the story could have been considered credible?

How pedantic. You have a very poor opinion of me!

I hope the use of the word "and" is read as describing two independent statements, both of which make the case that this rumor is self-evidently false.

And like that one, probably meant to exploit the readiness of certain segments of the electorate to stereotype other segments as scary, hateful boneheads--the Angry Black Person who hates white people and can't wait 'til they get enough power to stab them in the back, or in this case the dumb Alaskan redneck whose "common, everyday chatter" is a stream of racial slurs.

It was not directed at you personally, I also quoted Carek1230.

I think we should all be skeptical of everything we see and hear until it has been thoroughly sourced.

I never believed the Michelle Obama "Whitey" video for any length of time at all.

If someone said an aide that had worked for Palin said she overheard Palin say "So Sambo beat the Bitch". And she would take a lie detector. This story probably would have longer legs.

How many people actually believe McCain called his wife a c*nt?

It seems many people that post in here do.

And it is as true as the Michelle "Whitey" video.

Well the media is finally doing its job.

Quote:
Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has billed taxpayers for 312 nights spent in her own home during her first 19 months in office, charging a "per diem" allowance intended to cover meals and incidental expenses while traveling on state business.

The governor also has charged the state for travel expenses to take her children on official out-of-town missions. And her husband, Todd, has billed the state for expenses and a daily allowance for trips he makes on official business for his wife.
washingtonpost.com

Then the librul bastion known as the Wall Street Journal wrote a massive article basically calling her and McCain liars re: bridge to nowhere.

Quote:
At a rally today, Sen. McCain again asserted that Sen. Obama has requested nearly a billion in earmarks. In fact, the Illinois senator requested $311 million last year, according to the Associated Press, and none this year. In comparison, Gov. Palin has requested $750 million in her two years as governor -- which the AP says is the largest per-capita request in the nation.

...

Gov. Palin's claim comes with a serious caveat. She endorsed the multimillion dollar project during her gubernatorial race in 2006. And while she did take part in stopping the project after it became a national scandal, she did not return the federal money. She just allocated it elsewhere.
The New Republic called it a "naked lie."

Newsweek and AP are pretty much reporting the same thing.

Didn't Obama and Biden vote for the bridge to nowhere?

Are Obama and Biden running on a platform of "I said no thanks to the bridge to nowhere?"

I'm not sure if they did or not, but that's not the point. It's McCain and Palin who are talking about earmarks and the Bridge to Nowhere, not Obama or Biden. So their hypocrisy is relevant here.

I'd love a study to see if there's a correlation between poll results and frequency of media coverage. As it stands, I think it is fair to say that our media has ADHD, where substantive issues are "boring," and the GOP is just the kind of non-stop circus that they crave.

I think we should start keeping track of headlines from the mainstream news websites that make any specific mention of the candidates or their spouses.

CNN.com

Pastor: GOP downplays Palin's Pentecostal past
Palin's 'faith has become an issue'
'View' co-host takes swipe at Mrs. Obama
Men's support gives Palin edge in latest poll
Palin shoves Biden out of the spotlight

FOXNews.com

Obama: McCain, Palin 'Lying' About Maverick Claims

MSNBC.com

Palin's expenses scrutinized
NYT: Missing public funds, Obama prods donors
McCain, Obama spar on the trail

Can you think of anymore mainsteam U.S.-based news websites? Blogs or partisan news sites (WorldNetDaily, etc.) are to be excluded.

The only thing I'd debate is whether it is mainstream enough, thus not having much of an impact on the opinions of "ordinary people," who do not go out of their way to research the candidates.

I agree but let them keep it up. Its pretty clear that these kind on attacks are backfiring and only serving to bring more people to the side of McCain/Palin. It's a sign of desperation. They will try to downplay her experience. They ignore her accomplishments and continue to refer to her as a mayor of a city of 9000. They say she is a gimmick to get votes. They can lie about her all they want but he effect on the Republican ticket is obvious. National polls are up for McCain. They are in a tight race in several key states., They have widened their lead in OH.

Time will tell but these baseless attacks by KoS and the like will not help their guy if they keep it up. Especially with the level to which they have stooped.
