The blatant fabrications and low-ball slime tactics coming out of the McCain camp are truly stunning. Sen. McCain must indeed believe (or hope) that we are all stupid. Or, more likely, his cluelessness on the Internet, e-mail, in short, the entire electronic universe in which we all live, leads him to believe that he can propagate lies and half-truths with impunity, not understanding that every fabrication can be debunked in nano-seconds not just by the “media elites” but by the average Joe with a browser. Palin is merely on auto-pilot with her mindless repetitions of claims already well exposed as false. She cannot avoid answering direct questions much longer, and the first outing (with ABC’s Charlie Gibson) had better not be GOP-vetted softballs. When it comes to fabrications, this lady is a champ.
