Liar Liar Pants on Fire

As you know, I am a tremendous fan of US politics, which is more like CULTURE WARS.

Our neighbours to the south don't mess around when it comes to presidential elections. As their campaign moves forward, both sides are amassing lists of lies by the other candidate. Here are some of my favourites:

Obama WTF - documents Obama's lies - 124 and counting...

• The Democratic Party have just launched a McCainpedia to counter these allegations. No entries just yet.

• I also like Real Clear Politics - check out the George Will article.

What I find very interesting is the defection of some major Hillary supporters toward McCain-Palin. Check out this video of Lynn Forester De Rothschild, a self made woman who also happened to marry a Baron. She's talking with CNN's Wolf Blitzer:

I love her comments on wedge issues, for example, "the Democratic Party puts the choice issue around women's necks like a noose... Stop using that issue to scare people into voting for the Democratic Party."

Sound familiar?
