This is by far the most thorough debunking I've seen to date on the myriad of lies coming from Team McCain.

Obama wants to teach sex to kindergarteners? Lie.

Palin opposed the Bridge to Nowhere? Lie.

Palin hasn't taken earmarks as Governor? Lie.

Alaska produces 20% of America's energy? Lie.

Palin visited Iraq and Ireland? Lie.

HT Jed, who adds:

As the campaign moves towards a focus on the economy, it's worth keeping in mind that McCain's lies are relevant because the demonstrate the fundamental emptiness of his campaign. He is devoid of ideas and solutions; lies are the only thing McCain has left.
