I just witnessed John Cornyn trying to duck Andrea Mitchell's question about defunding Planned Parenthood.  What a liar.  Same as Boehner a minute before him.

They get up in front of the entire nation and state over and over again that it's "about the money" but then they duck every hint at actually answering the questions posed to them.  It's an absolute lie and they know it, but they just can't seem to tell the truth.  

What is it with these Politicians?  For that matter, why do all the Journalists let them get away with it.  Andrea tried to get a second question in about Planned Parenthood, but then for the second time she just let the guy duck the question again.  It's shameful for both the Politician and the Press.  

It's such an insult to the intelligence of the Electorate that they can do this with impunity.  They need to be taken to task and forced to explain their positions in detail.  There is no reason they should be allowed to get on National TV and allowed to lie their way through an interview.  It wouldn't happen if Rachel Maddow was the person doing the interview, but of course, she's labeled a "wacko liberal" and none of them would dare allow themselves to be questioned by her.  They're simply scared shitless of her.  

The Republicans are losing their mind.  I say close the whole fucking country down, for however long it takes.  There is no negotiating with them.  They lie, cheat and steal from this country.  They're only interested in pushing the limit further than they can reasonably expect, and we will never satisfy them.  Close it down.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
