Oh my gawd, is there NOTHING these people won't lie about? Is there nothing they won't throw out to the public like some kind of lab experiment to see what they can get to stick before someone calls them on it?

It seems that Maverick McMooseburgers hasn't actually visited troops in Iraq... or been in Iraq, for that matter:

Following her selection last month as John McCain's running mate, aides said Palin had traveled to Ireland, Germany, Kuwait, and Iraq to meet with members of the Alaska National Guard. During that trip she was said to have visited a "military outpost" inside Iraq. The campaign has since repeated that Palin's foreign travel included an excursion into the Iraq battle zone.

But in response to queries about the details of her trip, campaign aides and National Guard officials in Alaska said by telephone yesterday that she did not venture beyond the Kuwait-Iraq border when she visited Khabari Alawazem Crossing, also known as "K-Crossing," on July 25, 2007.

Asked to clarify where she traveled in Iraq, Palin's spokeswoman, Maria Comella, confirmed that "She visited a military outpost on the other side of the Kuwait-Iraq border."

It was the second such clarification in as many weeks of the itinerary of what Palin has called "the trip of a lifetime." Earlier, the campaign acknowledged that Palin made only a refueling stop in Ireland.

Now it looks like they might even be lying about the number of people showing up at McCain / Palin stump speeches, too.

In your FACE, voters!
