(CNN)— Governor Sarah Palin accused “Obama-Biden Democrats,” of launching a series of unfair attacks against her and her family in a fundraising email sent to supporters Monday.
“Friends, in the course of a few weeks, the Obama-Biden Democrats have launched attack after attack on me, my family and John McCain,” Palin writes in the email. “They’re desperate to win and they’ll no doubt launch these attacks against other reformers on our ticket.”
Watch: Obama says discussion of Sarah Palin's family is 'off-limits'
Earlier this month, the McCain campaign said its $47 million fundraising record for the month of August was due in large part to the addition of the Alaska governor to the ticket. Her presence on the campaign trail has also translated into larger crowds at campaign events throughout the country.
Palin said Obama and Biden have a “large financial advantage,” urging supporters that a contribution of any size will help stop the spread of “lies” and “misinformation” coming from Democrats.
“We must stop them,” Palin writes, “...before they turn these shameful tactics on others we support.”
Earlier this month when Obama was asked about Bristol Palin’s pregnancy, the Illinois senator repeated previous calls that “people’s families are off-limits.”
“This shouldn’t be part of our politics,” Obama said “It has no relevance to show Governor Palin’s performance as a governor or her potential performance as a vice president.”
What a crock!
My fellow Americans, please don't fall for this rubbish!!!
Any objective observer like myself can testify that it's been the Republicans (as usual) who have been spreading lies and garbage about Obama...
You're not getting a dime from me, liar, unless of course you're using it to build a bridge to the moon!
home home back to alaska!!! you and mcccccccccc are the biggest liars on this planet
I KNOW SHE DIDN'T!!!!!
"Governor Sarah Palin accused “Obama-Biden Democrats,” of launching a series of unfair attacks against she and her family in a fundraising email sent to supporters Monday..."
I put little stick in Governor Palin's attacking anyone. She's a standard issue politician.
But can I really put stock in a CNN journalist who writes "against she"?
POW Card...Victim Card..Race Card...Sexisim Card, MSM Slander Card.... and on and on and on.....
The only ones lieing are McCain and Palin...........THEY ARE A DISGRACE!!!!!
Palin get over yourself.
McCain is a copy cat..no original solutions

This is a joke right…LOL
Lipstick on a pot or a kettle. You choose. Ooops! Was that sexist?
No but if said to Obama people will use the race card and say it is racist.
You got to be kidding me. Do people really believe anything her or her lying running mate have to say anymore?
Those poor victims LMAO give me a break
I think SNL hit it on the head last week with the skit of McCain and his radio ads.
Yawwwnn....every politician lies, it's just a matter of who does it better.
Just another example of the pot calling the kettle black.
You have to know the TRUTH before you can accuse some one of spreading LIES. With all do respect ..I do not feel confident enough in PALIN to have the knowledge of Economics or World Affairs to be in an OFFENSIVE POSITON. She needs some real EXECUTIVE experience and WORLDLINESS and a REAL EDUCATION with a degree in hard things like Economics, Law, Business, or EVEN and MBA in SOMETHING !!! My liitle brother is more qualified than she and he got a degree in Physical Education....at hard School ...UCLA.
Is she serious? Tell her thanks but no thanks.
You would know a lot about lying, wouldn't you?
Palin is accusing Obama campaign of lying? About what? No specifics.

It's pathetic when the republicans play the victim card.
Not as bad as Obama playing the race card.
Is she insane?! (Wait, I already know the answer to that one). This woman has BUILT A CAREER out of lies and secrecy. What a hypocrit.
OMG!! C'mon Republicans take one for the team"America" and vote Obama/Biden. As a proud Republican we can't allow anymore corrupt liars in the White House. If it was just McCain I would say go for it(maybe), but this woman is a wacko and a danger to conservative and liberal alike. Maybe in 4 years we can get a good republican like Mike Huckabee in the white house.
Wow I can't believe she is still trying to play the victim card. Uh, Govener Palin, the reason why Obama has a huge war chest is because there are more people who love him and hate you, more people + more donors = more money. Got it. Now shut your piehole Paliar and quit charging people for things that should be free.
Lies? Bridge to Nowhere? Earmarks? Obama's tax proposal. (He's isn't raising them though Palin says he will.) Troopergate? Budget increases in Alaska? Trip to Iraq?
No doubt some bloggers spread lies on both sides. That's the internet for you....
Obama isn't telling lies about Palin, but she is lying about many issues.
OMG. She and J. McCain are the liers. ROFL
Put an end to them by coughing up the evidence, and honoring the subpoena...or STFU you criminal with apparently a long list of crimes to hide.
Obama/Biden: The true patriots, integrity, honesty and leaders
Why won't you cooperate with the investigation that you said you would on national tv to Charles Gibson?
Why did you say you was against the Bridge when we saw out of your own lips you were?
Why did you charge rape victims for rape kits?
Why did you cut funding for special ed?
There is nothing christian about you lady and you are a disgrace! How you look yourself in the mirror is beyond me.
mccain/palin = pathological liars!
What lies are she talking about? She's lying right now. This lady is awful!!

Your party is responsible for destroying the US economy! SPIN THAT!
Dems controled congress for 6 years. SPIN THAT!!!!!
Governor Palin - Did you return the earmarked money from the bridge to nowhere project when you said "thanks, but not thanks?" Or, did you and your state keep it?
Lying is a game the Republicans are good at as well.
