Political talking points

Posted By on Thu, Sep 4, 2008 at 10:36 AM

The Democratic Party had rapid response to Sarah Palin's speech last night and other Republican talking points. It's about facts, governance, truth, fiction. Among others, Palin lied about her position on the Bridge to Nowhere, she's grown the bureaucracy and taxes, she's abused authority, she's a pork barreler of the first rank. Will all this overcome the narrative noise and personality-oriented nonsense?

Republican Ben Stein on Palin: "The most peculiar vice presidential choice there ever has been." See him below. Also, a focus group of Michigan independents was equally unimpressed.
