Palin Lied About Supporting Children With Special Needs

Remember when Sarah Palin looked directly at the camera to speak to all the American parents raising children with disabilities and said "I pledge to you that if we are elected, you will have a friend and advocate in the White House"?

Well, Washington Monthly already burst that balloon. Via Yglesias, Palin cut funding for Alaska's children with special needs by a whopping 62%. 62%! And she looked the camera straight in the eye. Then she talked about bringing down Alaska's largess by firing the governor's personal chef.

I'm beginning to see how easy it was for her to repeat the "Thanks but no thanks," Bridge to Nowhere crapola on prime time.
