Sarah Palin is the worst.

Ugh, the mendacity of this asshole drives me to absolute distraction:
Palin, delivering a paid speech to an anti-abortion group in Texas, claimed that President Barack Obama oversaw "the biggest advance of the abortion industry in America" by signing landmark health care reform legislation that, she said, allows for taxpayer-funded abortions.

"That's why it's essential that we use the 2010 midterms to elect a Congress that will make undoing the damage of Obamacare its first priority," she told an audience of more than 2,500 gathered at First Baptist Church of Houston, a megachurch on the city's west side.
No. The reform legislation specifically does not allow for taxpayer-funded abortions. That's what the whole Stupak shit was about. That's why the president had to issue an executive order in association with the legislation banning the use of federal funds for abortion. It's flatly untrue that "Obamacare" funds abortions.

And CNN makes absolutely no attempt to insert actual facts into the story. It's just what Palin said, with no correction. No truth.

There's your liberal media for you.
Palin starkly framed the midterm elections on Tuesday as a choice between political candidates who favor a "culture of life" and those on the opposite side of the issue wanting to implement "a culture of death."
Says the supporter of the Afghanistan War and the Iraq War, whose warmongering position on Iran places her to the right of Dick Cheney. Ugh.
