Jon Stewart Exposes Republican Truth Spinners

Did you see The Daily Show on Wednesday night? I switched over at 10 sharp even though Sarah Palin hadn’t finished her speech. I was done listening to her lies and pettiness, anyway. I was not disappointed.

We all know that Republicans will spin the truth any way they want if it works for them on one day, and then flip their story when the very thing they criticized becomes a Republican talking point.

We know that but Jon Stewart’s people did a fantastic job setting Karl Rove and Bill O’Reilly against themselves, showing talking heads on Fox News in clear flip flops over playing the gender card, and even McCain’s own policy advisor displaying some “amazing double standards” (her words).

Republicans will say anything to get elected. Anything. It doesn’t have to be the truth, and they don’t necessarily have to agree with what they said a week or a month ago. And it doesn’t bother them, because the ends justify the means.

What lies? Instead of just saying they lied, can you cite an example of the lies in her speech? Seriously im interested.

Standards of writing present a statement, then back it up with facts.

If you don't, then how do you prove your point?

It wasn't the crux of the issue although the video does show a propensity for "alternative truths" among those people.

But on subject, how about the intimation that she sold the governor's jet on EBay? How about McCain claiming that she sold it at a profit? Lies.
