  •  What the republican faithful have to confront (3+ / 0-)

    is that they were lied to.  That one was lied to is a very unpleasant sensation, especially if the liar was someone you trusted.  That's because being lied to is demeaning.  It means that the liar holds you in such low regard that he doesn't think you can tell the true from the false.

    Most people would prefer to assume that they must have made a mistake and misunderstood what they were told.  That's because most people are modest folk and, if they don't lie, they don't expect to be lied to either.

    In their experience, when people lie, it's because they've done something wrong and are afraid of being punished.  Since they don't envision a national leader being punished by them, they don't expect him to lie to them.

    Which is why I think it's important to demonstrate that John McCain is an habitual liar.  Maybe he just can't help it.  But, whatever the reason, a liar is not to be trusted.

    How do you tell a predator from a protector? The predator will eat you sooner rather than later.
