A straight-talking lie

On July 22, John McCain said, "I had the courage and the judgment to say I would rather lose a political campaign than lose a war. It seems to me that Obama would rather lose a war in order to win a political campaign."

Today McCain said, "Yesterday, Senator Obama got a little testy on this issue. He said that I am questioning his patriotism. Let me be clear: I am not questioning his patriotism; I am questioning his judgment."

Question: Can anybody think of a more blatant lie by a presidential candidate? I don't mean lies that eventually were uncovered, but lies that were obvious and unequivocal and that followed so closely after the evidence that proves they were lies. I can't come up with one.
