    They put a list of 10 "lies" up and then allow folks to vote on the winner of "Lie of the Year" and just by chance Rep. Paul Ryan email blasted out the link to the vote to his superPAC supporters.  Ryan essentially stuffed the ballot box in order to have a defense against his budget massacre.

      For "lie of the year" in 2011 was "the economic stimulus created 'zero jobs'"--that choice was selected by 24% vs. 16% for the "End Medicare" choice, which came in third. Of course it wouln't do for a "fair and balanced" news org to give Republicans the lie of the year twice in a row, so they overrode the poll.
