100% bullshit: Palin, Alaska, and energy

By Michael J.W. Stickings

(From WaPo, performing a valuable service.)

McCain: "Gov. Sarah Palin "knows more about energy than probably anyone in the United States of America."

Palin: "My job has been to oversee nearly 20 percent of the U.S. domestic supply of oil and gas."

The truth: "While Alaska is a leading producer of crude oil, it produces relatively little natural gas, hardly any coal and no nuclear power. Its share of oil production has been declining sharply, and the state now ranks lower than Texas and Louisiana. Alaska is the ninth-largest energy supplier in the United States, accounting for a modest 3.5 percent share of the nation's total energy production."

The bottom line: "The Republican vice presidential nominee continues to peddle bogus statistics three days after the original error was pointed out by independent fact-checkers."

AMERICANS DESERVE TO KNOW THE TRUTH ABOUT SARAH PALIN.

SHE'S A LIAR.
