    Reince Priebus called Obama by the name of the captain of the cruise ship that ended up on the rocks off Italy, claiming that just like that captain, Obama had abandoned millions of Americans in trouble to run around campaigning.

    Bob Schieffer had a look on his face like he couldn't believe what he was hearing - but he didn't challenge anything Priebus said.

    They lie because they can get away with it - and because they have nothing else to offer.

    I would have loved it if Schieffer had come back with something like "Let me get this straight. You're comparing the actions of the current President to a man who left people to drown. Are you sure you're not referring to President George W. Bush and the people of New Orleans?" Cut to a picture of Bush grinning over that cake, and the point would be made.

    "No special skill, no standard attitude, no technology, and no organization - no matter how valuable - can safely replace thought itself."
