    And it is not just Jon Stewart, who I give a pass because it is really not his responsibility to engage in responsible journalism.  He is a comedian.

    I do wonder why the Democrats are having such a hard time pointing out the obvious facts.  The GOP is great at telling lies.  Democrats have a hard time just telling the truth when the facts are on their side!

    Even Jay Carney allows the inept, shilling White House correspondents to tie him up in knots on this.

      A lie can make it halfway around the world while the truth is still putting on its shoes.

        ...like Operation Bodyguard:

        Operation Bodyguard was the code name for a high level World War II deception plan employed by the Allied states during the buildup to the 1944 invasion of northwestern Europe. The plan set out a general strategy to mislead German high command as to the exact date and location of the invasion. It was implemented as a number of independent operations, eventually culminating in tactical surprise during the Normandy landings on June 6, 1944 (also known as D-Day) and a delayed German reinforcement of the region for some time afterward.

        Not all lies are created equal.

        Sorry, can't help myself. I loves the history.

        Join Essa in a revolt against the gods. Continue the fight, Causality.
