DNC Terrified of Sarah Palin

In the spirit of Halloween, Jen O'Malley Dillon sent a scary email out today about how that horrible Sarah Palin is spreading lies on Facebook! So what is Jen's solution?

Plaster your Facebook friends pages with the DNCs lies! Obama wants this health care thing pushed through and anyone who dares to speak out against it, gets the Obama special treatment.

You've seen it before. Bill Clinton is a racist. Hillary Clinton called for assassination of Obama after Bobby Kennedy remarks. McCain is so feeble he can't use a computer. FOX news is not a real news channel.

Now, Sarah Palin is a liar - again. For after all, the DNC did a horrific slice and dice job on her in 2008.

But what IS she lying about? Jen tells us - Palin says ObamaCare will raise costs on families and drive up the deficit.

Hello? Every expert that isn't on Obama's team says it will drive the deficit into the stratosphere. But because the DNC says "oh no it won't" we're supposed to say "okay, that Sarah Palin (and all the rest of the people who say it will) must be lying".

I am appalled that they will ask people to pepper their friends' Facebook pages with this crap. And I know the Faithful will do it. If one of my Facebook friends send this shit to me, they'll be unfriended and I'll never add them back on, and I don't care if it's a family member or a longtime friend.

Facebook is for social networking, not for spreading Obama propaganda. Shows how frightened they all are that this massive health reform package he has staked his presidency on is going to be defeated by common sense.

We simply cannot afford more Obama debt after the Wall Street bailout of all those rich people.

Here's the text of this ridiculuous screed from ol' Jen:

A lot of folks use Facebook to stay in touch with friends and family. For Sarah Palin, it's a great way to spread lies about health insurance reform.

A few months back, Palin took to Facebook to declare that health reform would create "death panels," and drive private insurers out of business -- and nonpartisan fact-check sites and the independent Congressional Budget Office debunked those lies.

But that hasn't stopped Sarah Palin. She's back with a new Facebook note claiming that reform will raise costs on families and drive up deficits. Unfortunately for her, even the conservative "Tax Foundation" says those claims are false.

So we're calling out Sarah Palin, and taking to Facebook to debunk her lies on the very same pages she's using to spread them.

Call 'em out: Sarah Palin. Watch the video, make a call, spread the word on Facebook.



We've put together a short Facebook note cataloging just some of Sarah Palin's many distortions and the facts that prove her wrong. But we need your help to "share" the note and make sure she doesn't get away with her outrageous lies.

If Sarah Palin wants to spread lies on Facebook, we'll call her out in the very same place. And when thousands of folks share our note and expose her lies, it will be clear that those who lie about reform will be held accountable -- no matter where they spread their misinformation.

The more we push back with the truth, the more Sarah Palin and others like her will have to think twice before they promote lies, and the less they'll be able to derail progress.

Even if you don't have a Facebook account, you can still help us call out Sarah Palin. Visit Call 'em Out: Sarah Palin to watch our video detailing her lies and to call Palin's political organization and say, "stop lying."

Rising health care costs are crushing American families and squeezing small businesses. Reform will reign in costs and cut the deficit in the long run -- that's why it's so important, and why Sarah Palin's lies are so malicious.

We're not letting it stand. We're calling Sarah Palin out:

Thanks for helping us set the record straight about reform,

Jen
