    When wingnuts and moonbats fly: What people | Palin | Gore | really said.​

    AL Gore : what did he actually say and in what context? Do you know?

    Starting with Al Gore, below is a defense that is printed in full as the source of a particular web page could not be found.

    "I can see Russia from my house." Palin's actual words "You can actually see Russia from land here in Alaska."

    No. Incoherence and irrelevance is not a problem for you.

    It's your usual state of being.

    Meanwhile, Dante's thread does make a valid point.

    Wait. Did I just say that? I mean, I typed THOSE words?

    Really?

    Well, ok. I'll cop to it.

    What the candidates actually said is often different than the spin put on their words by the partisans of the opposing camp.

    You obviously didn’t read the cited article; but keep the conservative tradition of repeating a lie often enough until it’s perceived as true alive, regardless the facts.
    Why bother? Conservatives won’t enter into a good faith debate predicated on facts. As per post #5 they’ve closed their minds to the truth, as it conflicts with rightist dogma.
