Who's Sarah Palin? THIS is the REAL Sarah "Political Stunt" Palin. Republican Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin told a passel of lies during her national convention speech. Within moments of the finish of the acceptance speech, the Associated Press published a point-by-point refutation of claims made by Palin and others at the GOP convention. Additionally, the Republicans stretched the truth by overstating Palins experience, misrepresenting her attitude toward earmarks and mischaracterizing Barack Obamas tax proposals. ome of the untruths Palin told:
She falsely claimed (again) to have opposed the Bridge To Nowhere.

Conservatives have criticized Obama, calling his comments sexist and in reference to Palin's quip "What's the difference between a hockey mom and a pitbull? Lipstick". The Obama campaign insists that the Illinois senator was using a common colloquialism. On Thursday, September 11th, Palin sat down with Charlie Gibson of ABC News for her first major interview.
