By now we know that Sarah Palin is playing fast and loose with the truth (some call it lying) when she claims to have rejected congressional funds for that infamous Bridge to Nowhere.
Yet she keeps bringing it up on the stump; at least a half dozen times this week alone. Does the truth matter anymore? Republican strategist John Feehery has his party’s answer (in today’s Washington Post):
“The more the New York Times and the Washington Post go after Sarah Palin the better off she is, because there’s a bigger truth out there and the bigger truths are she’s new, she’s popular in Alaska and she is an insurgent. As long as those are out there, these little facts don’t really matter (italics added).”
