DNC asks supporters to take on Palin's 'lies'

The Democratic National Committee is taking fresh aim at Sarah Palin.

(CNN) - The Democratic National Committee is taking fresh aim at Sarah Palin, encouraging supporters to attack the former Alaska governor on Facebook in order to "debunk her lies."

In an e-mail to supporters, and on a new Web site, the DNC asks supporters to call out Palin when she uses Facebook to transmit what the committee says are falsehoods.

"The more we push back with the truth, the more Sarah Palin and others like her will have to think twice before they promote lies, and the less they'll be able to derail progress," DNC executive director Jen O'Malley Dillon wrote in the e-email.

Palin is the latest high-profile Republican to be targeted by the DNC in a campaign they've labeled "call 'em out." Other Republicans in the DNC's cross-hairs have included House Minority Leader John Boehner, Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele, and Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann.

    And just how will Nancy pull $500 billion out of Medicare without pulling the plug on your Grandmother?

    I am a Dominican that didn't vote for Obama and i am proud of it, But let get educated before we just tell other people lies. Obama has not done anything to help out the poor. He has rented out rooms in the white house. Sarah isn't going anywhere, so you just better learn to deal with it. It make you guys made that she is beating all of your guys at the games. keep talking about here and people will go to her face book and read what she has written and then they will see the truth.

    How do we know when Sarah Palin is lying – "her lips are moving"

    She lies! She could potentially do more damage to this country than Mr Bush and that is a frightening thought!

    while the DNC is at it, they need to back up the White House in calling out FOX NEWS for who they are and what they do – a GOP propaganda operation attempting a political coup d'etat through the use of a systematic scorched-earth informational warfare campaign. These FOX folk understand the concept of Total War and are quickly approaching a DEFCON 1 mentality where they OPENLY advocate armed revolt. Glen Beck et al are precariously close to convincing the armed crazies that it's time to activate their militia.

    Again......if Sarah Palin is so insignificant and ignorant, why waste time and treasury dealing with her?
    Truth is, DNC cannot site any "lies", unless they first distort the truth themselves. Look out 2012.....regardless of what one thinks of SP....Obama is creating his own "One-Term" presidency......I love it when he keeps in step with the Liberal Left (who is the minority running the show anyway)

    What else do we expect from ignorant, self centered, self righteous nuts like Palin......they throw all their values and patriotism out the window and spew out lies and fear for their self fulfillment. THEY DO NOT CARE ABOUT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AND AMERICA.....IT IS AS CLEAR AS GLASS!

    You are all a pack of liars, Democrats and Republicans. I hope that the American people are not stupid enough to get into this fight. Who cares if Palin is a liar, Congress, the Senate and the President are all lying to us. Until the economy turns around, yo all should be working with each other and not engaging in school playground tactics. Grow up and get to work.

    Speaking of liars...what happened to the $150k in designer clothes that Sarah Palin was going to donate to charity? Where is the natural gas pipeline she said was ready to go?

    Sarah Palin lives in her own Universe populated by around 10% of America's fringe people. Those people have a brain disorder that think that if they repeat a lie often enough is becomes the truth. Sarah Palin seems to be able to pick a version of any story that will make her money.

    S'arah, another way she spells. Pie/Sky, money laundering scheme? Tax evasion? Possible indictment?

    Palin seems to have an aversion to the truth. She needs to be called out when she lies.

    Her response will be to play the victim card like she always does. I believe in Harry Truman's adage: "If you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen.

    How does this blowfish of a nut job gets so much air time? It takes foolish people to believe this airhead knows what she talks about.

    Nothing is clearer than her "betcha" statement at every turn. Go shoot a Moose woman!

    FOX NEWS while bragging about their ratings should understand that so many of us watch because we like a good train wreck.
    It's gratifying to observe the daily self-destruction of Palin, Beck, Rush, and the GOP – and there's no better place to pick thru all the lies than where they are most concentrated – FAUX NEWS – a smorgasbord of slime in the guise of news.

    I get tired of seeing, "President Obama is on the defensive" with these people who continually try and derail progress by telling Lie, after Lie after Lie after Lie after Lie.

    I think this is a good thing, We want Change and we will never get it to where we want it without EVERYONE on America's Side. Stop the Politics of Hate until the next election, right now work on America for Americans.

    Be on the right side of History you Nay sayers, just Believe and do unto others as you would have them do Unto YOU.

    Change as Come to America and the World !!

    We Like IT We LOVE IT We want some more Of IT !!!

    More and more the DNC just shows how much they are afraid of Sarah Palin......The DNC doesn't scare Sarah Palin in the least and they know it so they continue their attacks...Great job Sarah Palin not letting the DNC push you around. Trust me, this all will come back to bite the DNC in the butt and I'll just sit back and enjoy watching.

    Isn't this supposed to be the job of the media? Where's Walter Cronkite when we need him? All we're stuck with is lazy biased journalism anywhere and everywhere (including and especially Faux News).

    To those who accuse the left of being fearful of Palin – yes I am fearful. I am fearful that someday ignorant Americans would put someone like her in office! That would be real disaster!

    I actually like that Obama and the Democratic Party are fighting back. years ago, looked like wimps because they always 'took the high road' and refused to punch back at attacks. now that they are hitting back hard the Repubs are starting to cry. its not so easy when your victim fights back is it, you conservative wannies?

    Sarah Palin is working the republican conservative fringe talk show circuit including FOX News (FIXED NEWS) and will say whatever gets her another audience.

    If any objective observation were done on that excuse for a politician and job quitter, the real truth about Sarah Palin would look pretty terrible.

    I think the parties need to focus on themselves. Momma always said when someone attacks you it's because they have something to hide. Sarah Palin is not even running for office! WHY ARE LIBS SO THREATENED BY HER. THEY ARE THE ONES THAT KEEP HER IN THE SPOTLIGHT. I am glad though, because it brings out there true colors. Anyway....What exactly are the lies she is telling, with proof. All I see is a bunch of name calling.

    Note to DNC: Don't you people realise she works for our ultra-secret Monkeywrench Inserting Department and she's doing a DARN fine job so BACK OFF before you blow her cover!!
