Looks like McCain has become a liar to win the White House...

Another False Statement: The Republican presidential nominee said his running mate did not seek earmarks as governor of Alaska. But in fact, she asked for $198 million in February...

True Statement: John McCain got it wrong Friday when he asserted that his running mate, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, had not requested any earmarks, the spending directives lawmakers insert in spending bills that McCain has vowed to eliminate.

Palin, in fact, requested $198 million in federal earmarks in February, including such expenses as $487,000 to fight obesity in Alaska and $4 million to develop recreational trails.
