Anytime McCain speaks, you can win!

For every McCain lie that you expose via diary, I will donate a dollar on your behalf to the Obama campaign. To win, simply post a diary here exposing the newest McCain lie. If you're the first to expose the lie, I will donate a dollar on your behalf to Barack Obama's campaign.*

It's easy, and there are many, many chances to win! Here's an example of a winning diary:

Last night, at Rick Warren's forum, McCain cited a suicide bombing by al-queda that involved two mentally disabled women unwittingly used as bombers.

According McLiar:

My friends, we are facing a transcendent  challenge in the 21st century: radical islamic extremism.

Not too long ago in Baghdad, Al-Queda took two young women who were mentally disabled and put suicide vests on 'em, sent 'em into a market place, and by remote control, detonated those suicide vests. If that isn't evil, you have to tell me what is.

That is evil! And transcendent! But:

The chief Iraqi military spokesman in Baghdad, Brig. Gen. Qassim al-Moussawi, said the female bombers had Down syndrome and that the explosives were detonated by remote control indicating they may not having been willing attackers in what could be a new method by suspected Sunni insurgents to subvert stepped up security measures.

And from the NYTimes:

The blasts, coming after a marked drop in violence in Baghdad after the infusion of American troops into the capital and a shift by Sunni tribes against the insurgency, left many people here critical of the authorities and pessimistic for the coming year as they fear withdrawals of American troops.

Officials said insurgents had shifted tactics, because increased checkpoints and roadblocks have made it harder to detonate the car bombs that killed much larger numbers of people in the past.

Sunni Insurgents? Didn't McCain, though, recently claim that those guys (with his surgetastic help) were now helping to fight Al-Queda off? Yet, in front of Rick Warren and G-d, he now reveals that Al-Queda and the Sunni insurgents are still in cahoots?

Where are those lightning bolts when you need them?

Ah, yes, the time-tested Al-Queda/Insurgent interchangeability smokescreen switcharoo!  Use them as synonyms often enough, and everyone will be confused--but you'll never be wrong. It's one of McCain's favorite lies, and just one of many ways you can win! Here's another example of a recent, winning diary by A Siegel:

McCain: Liar, Liar, Pants on Fire...

Good luck!

*<SMALL>Each lie can only be entered once; winners will be chosen on a first-exposed/first-wins basis. Winners are limited to one lie per day. Diaries that expose lies subsequently corrected by McCain's handler, Joe Leiberman, receive half-credit. This offer is limited by federal election laws to the first 2300 lies.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
