  •  There's a Very Simple Explanation . . . (12+ / 0-)

    for the so-called discrepancies in Gardner's story. He is simply following the time-honored GOP Rovian dictum, "If the facts won't fit, make $#!+ up. Then refuse to be questioned on it."

    It works wonderfully. People pass it around as "Well, Cory Gardner says . . ." Pretty soon the statement lie and the person are disconnected and it becomes a generalized truth and is embellished along the lines of "My sister's niece's hairdresser's husband's cousin said . . .[insert more outrageous lie]." Pretty soon Fox picks it up, we all know what happens then.

    "A famous person once said, 'You can fool some of the people some of the time, but you can't fool all of the people all of the time.' But as I once said, "If you don't teach them to read, you can fool them whenever you like." – Max Headroom
