    someone say a liberal truth teller - be it Krugman, Stroller, MoT, Maddow, ect has gone off the deep end it reinforces my belief that we should follow their advice & prescriptions to the letter.

      get's them frothing at the mouth.  It challenges their upside down delusions about this so called Democratic administration's agenda and direction and their total faith in Obama. He is a liberal who cares about us and fights the scary maniac RW cause he's the greatest pol ever therefore I will twist reality until it matches what ever Obama says it is. He has the same basic agenda as the hard line right, he just knows how to double speak better and isn't quite as wacked.  How holding these opposing thought in ones mind is possible I don't know.  Double think is required  a assbackward reality that all depends on the shape your authority choses.  Orwell said it better in Goldstein's Book

      '.. but by the exercise of doublethink he also satisfies himself that reality is not violated . . . To tell deliberate lies while genuinely believing in them, to forget any fact that has become inconvenient, and then, when it becomes necessary, to draw it back from oblivion for just so long as it is needed, to deny the existence of objective reality and all the while to take account of the reality which one denies – all this is indispensably necessary. Even in using the word doublethink it is necessary to exercise doublethink...'
       

      Any truth tellers even Democratic ones must be exterminated, exterminate, exterminate.... Seems any truth teller who goes one step beyond Republicans are teh evil and the only useful agenda is to beat them even if we all lose once we do.
      There's some meaningful partisan politics. Attacking the people who point out that this emperor as well as the last one is naked he's selling the same old oligarchical collectivism as his Democratic and Republican predecessors is pathetic. .

      At least the Big dog felt our 'pain' or so he said. This lot of viscous disaster cappies just just tell you eat your peas and shut up or we'll declare you an enemy of the state.
