Right-wing Bloggers Lie Again: Obama's Dog Has His Own Plane—Not

The Wingnuts are at it again. Their latest Obama lie involves Bo, the White House dog. The claim: Bo has his own airplane.

That's right, Sooner fans, the Social/Fascist/Communist Obama White House is soooooo wasteful with the money they've stolen from the American people that they fly Bo around in his own airplane.

Or maybe this is false. PolitiFact checked it out and—you guessed it—it's not true.

More shame for the Far Right, which is so eager to lambast the president that it has a difficult time dealing with the facts. The entire fake story here.

Just desperate. And stupid.

Roger Simon from The Politico on Sarah Palin:

"Sarah Palin has something more than intellect. She has the ability to understand, connect with and energize her party."

He must have meant something OTHER than intellect.

I would sincerely love for the GOP to put her up for President, but somehow, I don't think they are THAT dumb.

Karl Rove's protege, Steve Schmidt, dropped what he was doing for McCain in October 2009 to take charge of her debate prep. After that experience, he said:

"I think she has talents, but my honest view is that she would not be a winning candidate for the Republican party in 2012."

"Were she to be the nominee, we could have a catastrophic election result."

And that was being diplomatic.

But don't let me dissuade you, GOP. Throw her hair extension into the ring!

Simon also exhorted Palin in a previous column to "...surround yourself with people smarter than you are..."

OK, that's just too easy!
