News: Sarah Palin, John McCain's choice to be a heartbeat away from the presidency, has international relations experience because (get this) she's from Alaska, which is the closest state to Russia. This according to FOX News. If her expertise on Russia is so great, why didn't she warn us about the recent invasion of Georgia? I wonder if one of Palin's aids presented her with a "Putin Determined To Strike Georgia" memo and she decided it was not as worthy of her attention as trying to get books banned. I mean, I know that whole Russia thing is The Secretary of State's job and supposed area of expertise, but Condoleeza Rice houses her shoe collection all the way over there in D.C., right? How could she have known?

During their RNC speeches Mike Huckabee and John McCain talked about change so much you'd think it had been other party in the White House destroying the country these last eight long years. Pious Mike finished up by relating the story of a high school teacher explaining to her class that their classroom desks were paid for by the sacrifices of war veterans. Gee, Mike, I hate to nitpick, but I'm pretty sure that those desks and books and school buildings and teacher salaries and roads and bridges are all paid for by those things that you demonize: taxes. The AP also did some fact-checking of the claims made in some RNC speeches and found that they "stretched the truth" and Minister Huckabee actually let loose with a "whopper" (which Merriam Webster defines as "an extravagant or monstrous lie"). I know, shocking, Right?
