    every ethical question depends on a personal interpretation of ethics.  In this case, lying might or might not be justified.  You might think lying I'd never justified.  You might think it's sometimes justified to support a higher end. Or you might think that voting for a candidate is not necessarily endorsing him.

    I don't care about social fabric at all, much less his site, but I actually think Operation Hilarity is pointless, as Mitt doesn't seem to poll much better than Rick, and I'd choose to take that opportunity to vote for Obama as I'm a noted Obamabot.  But I happen to think that given the GOP styl-ee, I'd just as soon interfere with their process just because we can.  Winning the election is all I care about viz election, but if we can win dirty versus win fair, I'd actually rather win dirty.  They will complain just the same, and i'm tired of the GOP thinking they're the tough guys.  So, when I say the means justify rhe ends, I am deadly serious.  I don't want to just score a goal, I want to throw some elbows just to do so.  I am a big fan of moral superiority, but I don't actually feel any if we lost an election. Or if there is no actual moral conflict.
