The thread seeks to distort the issues, and use them to hide behind personal attacks against Palin.
Right at the start of the thread, the op talks about how much money Alaska receives from Earmarks, but fails to acknowledge how much she has reduced
Earmarks for Alaska. The whole thread is a complete distortion of the reality, long ago debunked.
Then you follow up, "Talking about buying your votes!!"
How the heck does reducing earmarks by almost 50% equate to buying votes. If you could show Palin increased fed funds to Alaska you might have a
point, but just the opposite is true. This is blatant distortion of the facts, not an honest discussion of the facts.
"Hypocrisy at its finest"
describes this thread.
Then you go on to claim " in her first chance that she had to introduce herself to the nation and outright lie to the country proclaiming herself
as a "reformer" and an agent of change only goes to show you what she really is, just another politician trying to move up."
She didn't outright lie, she did decrease earmarks, she did sell that jet, she did not use the money to build a bridge to nowhere. this is just a
personal attack on your part. You are calling her a liar when this whole thread is a lie and a distortion.
A 50% reduction is considerable bragging rights as a reformist. Whatever warning she may have, or not have received form congress about earmark
directions, she in cut earmarks to Alaska by 50%. That is Above and Beyond doing the minimum.
The thread is trolling by distorting the facts and immediately turning to personal attacks against Palin.
