FactCheck.org’s Weird Version of “Facts”

I’m looking over their “fact check” of Palin’s speech. It’s unfortunate they allowed this line to be published, since it’s way more sympathetic than it ought to be:

Palin’s accusation that Obama hasn’t authored “a single major law or even a reform” in the U.S. Senate or the Illinois Senate is simply not a fair assessment. Obama has helped push through major ethics reforms in both bodies, for example.

“For example”?! Why not name one? For one thing, “pushing” legislation is usually an empty claim. Show me the PR drive Obama led on ethics reform on the federal level, or bills that weren’t coopted from other state legislators. For another, Obama *hasn’t* authored a single major law or reform. Even if he *had* pushed someone else’s bill, saying that Palin’s wrong in saying what she said is dishonest.
