Could We Get a Fact Check, Please? (Thursday, September 4, 2008)

Next in our series, "The GOP is Scary", we have this analysis from Newsweek on some of what the Republicans have been saying at their convention in St. Paul. While it might go a little far to accuse them of lying, I think some of them may be a little bit confused on a few details, from Palin's voter turn-out ("Huckabee told conventioneers and TV viewers that Palin got more votes when she ran for mayor of Wasilla than Biden did running for president. Not even close. The tally: Biden, 79,754, despite withdrawing from the race after the Iowa caucuses. Palin, 909 in her 1999 race, 651 in 1996.") to McCain's military history ("Giuliani also said McCain had been a fighter pilot. Actually, McCain's plane was the A-4 Skyhawk, a small bomber. It was the only plane he trained in or flew in combat, according to McCain's own memoir.").
