GOP Lie Of The Day

August 3, 2008 at 9:58 am | Posted in Politics | Leave a comment

If Republicans had their way, we’d be in Orwell’s 1984 or some other totalitarian state where history gets rewritten every day. Today’s GOP Lie-Of-The-Day is that McCain supported the creation of the Martin Luther King Jr. federal and state holidays.

In a vote likely to haunt him for the rest of his public career, McCain voted against 1983 legislation establishing the third Monday in January as the federal holiday marking King’s birthday.

I guess we can blame this on McCain’s youthful indiscretion when he was a 48-year old fossil.
