    already been made, in this thread. And it's already been acknowledged that it's true--it doesn't make a whit of difference to Bachmann "supporters" that she's exposed a liar.

    But it makes a big difference to Americans who aren't Bachmann supporters, if it's regularly pointed out to them that she's a liar, and the evidence is reliable and published publicly.

    Ánd those regular revelations of a policy of lying, can have an adverse effect on the career of a liar.

    You cited the career of Bush. So do I. The exposure of Bush/Cheney as liars, and the fact that they were finally defined as such in the minds of voters outside the left, played a role in the overthrow of a Republican Congress and White House.

    Don't delude yourself that exposing conservatives as liars "doesn't work." It can, if you can get the proof to the voters who aren't proto-fascists, regularly.
