lies, liars and statistics

It's hard to be a maverick with a record like this.

Also, Governor Palin seems to have fibbed again...this time on Darfur. She claimed in the debate that under her leadership, Alaska divested itself of economic and financial ties to Sudan in order not to benefit the genocidal leaders of that country. Nice story, too bad it's not accurate.
"The [Palin] administration killed our bill," said Alaska state representative Les Gara, D-Anchorage. Gara and state Rep. Bob Lynn, R-Anchorage, co-sponsored a resolution early this year to force the Alaska Permanent Fund – a $40 billion investment fund, a portion of whose dividends are distributed annually to state residents – to divest millions of dollars in holdings tied to the Sudanese government.

Say it ain't so Sarah. Doggone it. Why do I get the feeling that when she winks at us, she's playing us for fools?
