Follow this link where Eric Zorn explains in a Chicago Tribune article what a “present” vote by Barack Obama in the Illinois Legislature really means.
Again, Sarah Palin, takes a cheap shot with a Big Lie. To be most charitable one might say she is spouting off again about subjects she knows nothing about. It is further proof that one refutation of a big lie is not enough. We have to refute over and over again. It also shows why I like to keep links to these refutations. With McCain/Palin, you know that one refutation is not enough.
I am going to take my own suggestion and develop a graphic Lieometer to use with all comments about the McCain/Palin strategy.
Thanks to RichardH for finding the above link to give credence to my explanation to him of the meaning of the “Present” vote.
