There’s a little straight talk, my friends. John McCain lies. Constantly. Incessantly. About big things and small things. About Barack Obama and Sarah Palin and Joe Biden and himself. About pretty much everything he claims to believe.
John McCain is a liar.
It’s a damn shame; there was a time when John McCain was known as a truth-teller, an honorable man. But he’s shelved that honor, and he’s become what he once railed against: just another lying politician. Whether he’s claiming his vice presidential candidate never asked for an earmark as governor when in fact she asked for about ten times the average per capita amount, claiming that Barack Obama’s support of teaching kindergartners to protect themselves from sexual predators amounted to “teaching sex ed to kindergartners,” or pretending that he hasn’t changed positions on anything during this campaign when he’s done so at least 76 times, John McCain is pretty much lying all the time now. It’s gotten so bad that the AP has even called him out on it — and they’ve been riding the tire swing all campaign long.
I mean heck, look at these ads. It seems like he isn’t even bothering with the truth anymore:
Look, I used to like John McCain, but that was when he was telling the truth. He’s a liar now. We’ve spent the last eight years with a president who lied to us; is that how we want to spend the next four?
