Senator John McCain and his court jester, Sarah Palin, have been slinging so much mud at Barack Obama that his desperation to reside in the White House has driven him to discard whatever little reason and principle he still had left.
One might think that he has no skeletons in his closet by the way he and Palin are trying to sell lies and half-truths to the American public.
Doesn’t he know that people in “glass houses” shouldn’t throw stones? If that’s true then people in “13 glass houses” definitely shouldn’t throw anything!
Below is just the tip of the iceberg in illustrating just how full of shit John McCain is. Soak it up as there is much more TRUTH The Lang Report plans to publish this week as we too are tired of this one-sided slug fest.
