Last night on MSNBC, host Keith Olbermann aired clips of Gov. Sarah Palin (R-AK) offering her support for the so-called “Bridge to Nowhere” during a debate in 2006, and another of Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) criticizing it. “Considering that this campaign is not about issues, that dispute could very well be moot,” Olbermann said, adding that as of today, he will give to charity every time Palin lies:

OLBERMANN: By the way, as of tomorrow, every time Senator [sic] Palin repeats one of her standard lies about the Bridge to Nowhere or the plane she sold on eBay that she didn’t sell on eBay, or the fired chef she didn`t fire, I will donate 100 dollars to charity. It will be 300 dollars if she somehow says she sold the chef on eBay. I will also donate fictional cans of Aunt Sarah’s canned moose chunk stew to a lucky viewer.

Watch it:

As of yesterday, Palin and the McCain campaign have repeated the lie that Palin opposed the “Bridge to Nowhere” at least 29 times.

Digg It!
