Keith Olbermann has had quite a bit to say on the subject of Palin's hypocrisy too. (In fact, you only found part of it.) Over 11 minutes' worth:


I can't seem to post a comment without incident. Here is the link I gave above.

G Felis

In the same vein, here's a discussion of John McCain's long-time personal and political friendship (and political support from) convicted felon, notorious whacko, and recent terrorism/murder advocate G. Gordon Liddy.

Is it legitimate to smear McCain via his association with Liddy? Not really. But that's not the point. The point is that Liddy is an unrepentant vile criminal and lunatic with a comparatively close relationship with McCain. Compared to what? Compared to the reformed, violence-regretting, Chicago Citizen of the Year William Ayers' casual, not-particularly-close acquaintance with Barack Obama.

Shall we now talk about John McCain's many other very close associates that truly do reflect badly on his politics and character, like all the professional lobbyists for brutal dictators he hired to run his campaign?

Bah! Every time the McCain campaign and perky puppet Palin produce another smear of Obama, the attack on Obama proves to be demonstrably false and/or irrelevant, while vast mountains of evidence can quickly be found to show how McCain and Palin are actually guilty of the very sort of thing they are attempting to smear Obama with. We need a new word to describe this phenomenon, perhaps "hyper-hypocrisy."


I read somewhere recently that you can accurately predict what the right is about to do (or has already done or is in the process of doing) by what they accuse the left of doing.

Case in point...ACORN vote "fraud," though there's no such thing, I think we all know how Bush won the last two elections.
