One of Sarah Palin's major selling points is her supposed reputation as an anti-wasteful-spending reformer who will clean up Washington.

And the most ironic part of it all? I'll let The Washington Independent sum it up:

As Laura pointed out earlier, John McCain didn’t think so. Indeed, The LA Times reported that McCain was criticizing Palin’s earmarks at the time that his now-running mate was securing them. It’s revelations like these that can quickly erode candidates’ maverick reputations.

When will the media start scrutinizing Palin's real record? The McCain campaign is going to attack them as being unfair/sexist/liberal/etc. no matter what they do. Might as well report the real story.
