Isn't it nice when an informal observation is validated by an independent analysis?

It's not surprising. When your party's one and only stated goal is to make Obama a one-term president, you have to lie a lot in order to keep up the façade that your policies are actually good for the middle class.

While it is no excuse, I honestly believe a good portion of these "lies" are simply due to ignorance. They pander to the ignorant because they are ignorant.

It's a bit refreshing, considering the crap that very same site took here (along with factcheck) over the Democratic exaggerations and distortions about the voucher for Medicare insurance issue.

There is a difference between intentional and unintentional ignorance though. I'll gave a pass to the politicians because they are only as good as their advisers and tend to espouse views they've been told belong to the majority of voters. The pundits on the other hand, brag about their grasp of everything from politics to sexual preference so really have no excuse for their ignorance. Their ignorance is something they use to incite their own emotions and thereby the emotions of their listeners.

This man was the star of the Sikh parade yesterday. He rode in a giant, golden, motorized airplane which he had built himself.

I'm pretty sure Mitch McConnell knows exactly what he is doing. When you are merely ignorant, your ignorant statements aren't going to perfectly align with what the Koch brothers want.

Well that was out of place
