On “Meet the Press’ this morning, McCain “guaranteed victory” in the election. Meanwhile, at a rally in Florida, Palin accused Obama of acting like he’d already won the election. That, of course, comes on the heels of Obama’s repeated insistence over the last week or so that his supporters not be overconfident because the election hasn’t happened yet.
So, it’s OK for her running mate to act like he’s already won the election, but not the other guy (the fact that Obama hasn’t done anything of the sort notwithstanding).
Sometimes I wonder what it would be like to be able to lie so easily and often. If the stakes weren’t so high, this would be an interesting study in a person’s ability to ignore facts, evidence, truth, reality… It’s really quite amazing.
Go home, Sarah.
