"But, you know, when you've been taking all these earmarks when it's convenient, and then suddenly you're the champion anti-earmark person, that's not change. Come on! I mean, words mean something, you can't just make stuff up." -- Barack Obama, Sept. 6, 2008
Mr. Obama has shown little restraint on earmarks until this year. He is vulnerable on this issue, and he knows it. That is why he is lashing out at Mrs. Palin and trying to hide his own record.
Mrs. Palin is one of the strongest antiearmark governors in America.Her record is solid and inspiring. She will help Mr. McCain shut down the congressional favor factory, and she has a record to prove it.
