The McCain-Palin Campaign has launched a Truth Squad! Finally....

The Left is coming up with all kinds of bogus smears against Sarah Palin. I'm glad to hear the McCain camp is finally going to start VERY actively trying to fight back. It's always hard to prove a negative, to counter half-truths and misinformation. You never know whether to give it credibility by acknowledging the idiotic garbage by trying to counter it or whether to just ignore it. In this crazy election and in our current atmosphere of mudslinging and lies using the overall cause as justification, I think it's generally best to counter each and every little thing.

Fortunately, or unfortunately, depending on your perspective, most Republicans aren't the kind of people who spend half their life on the Internet trying to counter stuff.

Here's a statement from the press release the McCain campaign sent out about the truth squad:

"We're proud of Governor Palin's leadership in Alaska and record of taking on
entrenched special interests and the good old boys network," said former
Governor Jane Swift. "Governor Palin's commitment to reform is well-known but
there are those who would seek to distort that record with vile rumors and
smears against her, her husband, her children and her friends. We will not allow
those on the left and in the media to smear a woman who has always served her
constituents with honor. We know the truth and are committed to ensuring it as

Palin has an outstanding record in Alaska and it is despicable that the Dems have sent THIRTY, 30, lawyers and garbage diggers to her home state to try and make up crap about her. Truthfully, I'm surprised they didn't send more! Although, given the number of bloggers they have who follow along like zombies I don't know they really needed the 30.
