Palin flicks McCain, choses Joe the Plumber for Presidential Running Mate

Nawww. Not really. That's a complete fabrication. A lie to get your attention. A desperate act to gain publicity. Spin. Political punditry. Shameless pot stirring, plumbing new depths.

So why all the fuss?

Joe the Plumber was once Joe the Alaskan (are you surprised?)

And then, there's YET MORE:

The Odd Lies Of Sarah Palin I: Firing Monegan by Andrew Sullivan
Sarah Palin's contribution is to introduce a new level of detachment from reality to our politics. After Bush-Cheney, this would be hard for anyone. But youbetcha she can.

This has been the pattern from the start of her career: a denial of reality combined with an almost unhinged and unlimited ambition. Since the press is barred from questioning her thoroughly, since we will never know how she responds to the long list of untruths she has told - from the smallest biographical detail to the biggest policy - all I can do is remind my readers of the record one more time before November. There are nineteen assertions of factual untruths that I've been able to document.
Read all about it in the Atlantic Monthly.

How long d'ya spose it'll be before she (and Ted, maybe?) starts a Pacific Monthly, to "correct" such "falsehoods"?
