"Going Rogue," the ghostwritten tome of Alaska's Winky You Betcha, is being released today, and will certainly contain more fibs by the former Rethug VP candidate. McSame campaign officials who are castigated in the book have already called many of Winky's allegations false. The Associated Press obtained an advance copy of the book, and noted a number of false statements by Winky; she, in turn, has called AP's critique erroneous. We'll see about that, but we doubt that Winky's suddenly learned to tell the truth. As Sully notes in The Atlantic, she is on record for numerous falsehoods both during the campaign last year, and beyond. Of course, the boobs who want to believe her every whopper, and the cynical neocons who are riding on her popularity with the Rethug base, don't give a damn that she lies easily and without reflection, as long as the lies match their reality. 'Cause that's how they roll.
