"NORFOLK, Va. - Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama on Wednesday accused Republican John McCain's campaign of using 'lies and phony outrage and Swift-boat politics' in claiming he used a sexist comment against vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin."
And it's about time. McCain and Palin and the Republican Party have been lying to the American people. A person lies whenever that person purposely misrepresents, misinforms, or makes shit up. It's not rocket science to determine when somebody is lying. If what they are saying denies the facts in evidence, they are lying. And yet, until now, the Dems and Obama have been soft-balling McCain/Palin by saying things like they are "not telling the truth" or "stretching the boundaries of spin." Call it what it is, and make the mainstream media call it what it is. Then the people can decide whether or not they want another liar in the White House for the next four years.
