If you haven't read Al Franken's book about the tsunami of lies coming from the so called mainstream media, don't bother. It's certainly on point, but it's woefully outdated. Because in the brief period since its publication, the miasma of lies spread by wingers, media monopolies, the Republican congressional leadership and little King George has completely eclipsed anything examined and reported in Al's book.
So here's my question: Why are Republican's such pathological liars?sleaz
Just look at ScAlito . . . hemming and hawing to avoid telling the truth about anything that might stand in his way on the road to POWER. He's happy to tell it straight about a host of constitutional issues, but when it comes to the ONE issue that will dump his ass in hot water, he lies, lies, lies.
And what about wingers in Congress? Today they're flat out lying about the quality and quantity of personal armor available to our troops, covering their butts at every turn, trying to blame their gross negligence on someone else.
And who can forget Sad Sue the Liar Myrick, who can't bring herself to acknowledge that she's atramp. She's either a liar or a sociopath . . . and shame on voters who stand behind the witch while she twists reality to fit her pocketbook.
Dems aren't perfect by any stretch, but the level of Republican lying is truly breathtaking.
And I know why they do it: they are quite literally ashamed about their hideous views -- and afraid to have those views known by Mr. and Mr. Average American.
That's why I love true nutcases like Pat Robertson. The only difference between him and his buddies on the right is that he actually says what he thinks. He may be full of crap, but at least he's honest.
