Palin "publicly denies reality, insists on repeating that denial and is unable to deal with real world the way psychologically healthy people do. . . . They are not the lies of a devious politician. They are much more troubling than that. They reflect a psyche unable to process fact when it conflicts with a delusional self-image. She is even worse in this psychotic denialism than Bush. She is a politician who can only survive in a propaganda state" (Sullivan, 19 Oct 2008 06:06 pm).

Next thing you know, she will be lying about lying about the Troopergate Report! Doubt McCain & Co. will not acknowledge that their veep choice is a pathological liar - either because they are as well ("like attracts like"). What is especially scary is that some voters (and journalist!) apparently still think she is a viable candidate! Perhaps that just goes to show the extent to which we have become an Orwellian propaganda state.
