Since the moment Palin burst onto the scene, the media has engaged in the most sustained attack I’ve ever seen on a single political candidate. Outright lies, partial lies, rumors, half-truths, full truths — it doesn’t matter. There’s just a giant information dump onto the public radar, with the hope that most people will never sort through the information, but will just be left with a general impression that Palin is an idiot who lies, cheats, steals, slaughters animals indiscriminately, hunts and burns witches, sleeps with her whole family, censors books (but probably can’t read ‘em), and (worst of all) believes in God.
The McCain campaign has now set up a pretty cute little website aimed at countering the worst of the smears against her. It’s called, appropriately enough, Palin Truth Files, and it deserves some attention.
