View Diary: Candy Crowley Says "I Didn't Backtrack On Romney Libya Fact Check" Refuting Right-Wing Meme (28 comments)

  •  The Gallup daily tracking poll shows Romney up 6% (4+ / 0-)

    today, from polls taken before the debate, but these right wing blowhards like Rush Limbaugh have learned if they just keep repeating entirely false realities unopposed, people eventually accept them as true.

    We need a new word for not just factual lies, but totally fabricated "alternative realities," where it becomes nearly impossible to fact check because the network of deceptions are all self-referential.  Sort of like that old joke about "When did you stop beating your wife?"   Even by denying it you are at some level buying into the idea that you once did.
