Andrew Sullivan is tirelessly cataloguing and regularly updating the "odd lies of Sarah Palin" ("odd" because unlike normal politicians’ deceptions, they’re not exaggerations or misdirections or fuzzy interpretations — they’re just flat out denials of settled, documented fact, easy to debunk with a google search).

Gristians may be particularly interested in lies four (endangered species), five (the oil pipeline), seven (climate change), and nine (Alaska’s energy contribution).

Someday someone will write a book about Palin — her personal background, her psychological profile, her political history, her interaction with the revanchist right base — that will make sense of her. I look forward to it, as I admit to being virtually struck dumb. I just don’t know what to make of it.
