  •  you ignored my question (0+ / 0-)
    whether they lied or not isn't the question

    I'm saying it is not official that they lied

      therefore using the dictionary definition, it's official that they lied. What's so hard about that?

      •  by your definition (0+ / 0-)
        if someone is wrong that means they are lying

        that's crazy talk

          used only if the speaker knew or should have known that the statement was incorrect. I think that clearly applies here. Incidentally, you are using the same reasoning used by wingnuts who deny that the President lied in the SOTU speech about Iraq's nuclear programs- "he didn't KNOW he was wrong so he wasn't REALLY lying"

            Stop lying about me.  I did not use the same logic as wingnuts.  I am not denying that Lieberman lied -- I am denying that it's official that he lied.  Big difference.  To say it's official is incorrect, and therefore a lie.  Markos wasn't just wrong -- he lied!  Wow this is fun.
