McCain's camp makes an ad from the lying mind of John Fund.

It's no surprise, then, that Democrats have airdropped a mini-army of 30 lawyers, investigators and opposition researchers into Anchorage, the state capital Juneau and Mrs. Palin's hometown of Wasilla to dig into her record and background. My sources report the first wave arrived in Anchorage less than 24 hours after John McCain selected her on August 29.

The usual round of zombie brains like Hannity picked it up.

The DNC has refuted this allegation by Fund.

Michael Gehrke, research director of the Democratic National Committee, scoffed at all of this: "Sadly, I don't have 30 lawyers, researchers, investigators or even wolves at my disposal. We have sent a grand total of zero people to Alaska to research Governor Palin. We've got all these McCain houses to keep track of. "

The ironic thing - which you all reported - is that the only people who sent lawyers to Alaska to research Palin was the McCain camp, who belatedly thought it was a good idea to vet her after they picked her to be one heartbeat away from the leader of the free world."

Can you help us out?
