The Alaskan governor who quit her job has the distinct honor of having her "Death Panels" lie named as one of FactCheck.org's top ten whoppers of 2009. Palin's lie has already received the top prize for biggest lie of the year from PolitiFact, and now she is being recognized as a very good liar by the people at FactCheck.org for her gross falsehood on "Death Panels."
