    good at lying and manipulation.  If so, imagine the amount and character of the stuff we do not know yet.

    Patriotism may be the last refuge of scoundrels, but religion is assuredly the first.

      of lying and manipulation.

      They are fine when they aren't dealing with facts in a public forum because they don't have to defend themselves.  The way that the laws are set up tends to shield them from having to defend themselves.

      But when the truth is discovered, they are like four-year olds who have been caught trying to pull off  a scam.  Powdered sugar and bits of donut stuck around the mouth and on the chin, the child looks up and says, "No.  I didn't eat the donut, Daddy.  That wasn't me.  It must have been the dog."
