Arts and Crafts Project

I was surprised at lunch the other day when several of my artsy associates had kind words for John McCain. This has inspired me. I think I'll make up a couple of little cards to have with me so as to add some corrective truth to the right-wing din; they will be called something like Ten Significant Lies by John McCain, and Ten Things You Didn't Know About McCain. Maybe it would be good if other people would do the same thing, hand 'em out to friends and family so as to debunk the Straight-Talking Maverick Bullshit, and help people see St. John for the mean-spirited, dim-witted spoiled little Princeling he's always been.

Anyway, there will be more to come, but I'm compiling the data now, inspired by this little list from Arianna Huffington:

.... John McCain has a long history of issuing heartfelt denials of things that were actually true.

He denied ever talking with John Kerry about his leaving the GOP to be Kerry's '04 running mate -- then later
admitted he had, insisting: "Everybody knows that I had a conversation."

He denied admitting that he didn't know much about economics, even though he'd said
exactly that
to the Wall Street Journal. And the Boston Globe. And the Baltimore

He denied ever having asked for a budget earmark for Arizona,
even though he
. On the record.

He denied that he'd ever had a meeting with comely lobbyist Vicki Iseman and her client Lowell Paxon,
even though he had. And had admitted it in a legal deposition.

And those are just the outright denials. He's also repeatedly tried to
spin away statements he regretted making (see: 100-year war, Iraq was a war for
oil, etc.).
