Palin Strikes Again

Showing that she is always on the cutting edge of current events, Sarah Palin began attacking Barack Obama for comments he made in an interview months ago in which the he suggested coal plants could be bankrupted by his cap-and-trade proposal. She took Obama to task for the proposal, saying "it will bankrupt them because they’re going to be charged a huge sum for all that greenhouse gas that’s being emitted.” Perhaps in an attempt to head off charges that she would have known about this long ago if she had bothered to read anything, she blamed her delay on the 'liberal media.'

“Why is the audio tape just now surfacing?,” Palin asked. “This interview was given to San Francisco folks many, many months ago. You should have known about this, so that you would have better decision-making information as you go into the voting booth.”

There's one problem with her liberal conspiracy theory. It's false. Contrary to her attempts to portray a media cover-up, audio and video recordings of Obama’s January 17 sit-down with the Chronicle editorial board have been freely available online for more than nine months.

Oh, and there's another problem. John McCain also supports a market-based cap-and-trade proposal to reduce carbon emissions. Source: CNN
