Wondering about the veep debate?

There were plenty of misstatements on both sides in the vice presidential debate, according to FactCheck.org.

Sen. Joe Biden was wrong when he said Barack Obama and John McCain voted the same way on a particular tax bill, and when he said McCain wouldn't even sit down with the president of Spain.

Gov. Sarah Palin was wrong when she said troop levels in Iraq were back to pre-surge levels, when she said Obama favored tax increases on families making as little as $42,000.
