redstate, fail, lol
     Really? Doesn't this sum up all of modern conservativism?

     When all the facts are against you, blame the fact-checkers. . .

     So check out this post by Conservative RedState.com front pager streiff. It is just pathetic.

Quote a FactChecker Earn a Ban

     In the past we’ve had a policy of banning people who argue in bad faith. As Politifact, and the whole menagerie of “fact checking” organizations have demonstrated themselves to be slavishly attached to the Administration’s nether regions I will consider quoting any of them, in a non-ironic way, as being evidence of arguing in bad faith and worthy of a ban.

    What do you think?

   I think you just divorced reality.

   Mitt Romney created 100 million jobs as Gov of Massachusetts. Disagree? YOU'RE BANNED!

   It's like open bar for liars. A place where lies and falsehoods can never be proven false. And CNN pays  Erick Erickson of RedState.com for his "commentary", the same guy who manages a website that will ban you if you quote fact-checkers at them. I guess when CNN introduces Erickson they will have to ad a caveat to his byline (Founder of RedState.com, statements made at RedState.com are not intended to be a factual statement.)

    Who woke up on 9/11 today and decided the whole problem with this country is the fact checkers? If it wasn't for the American public's insistence on arithmetic, science and knowing recent history it would be really good news for John McCain Mitt Romney. Basically admitting that you can't win a debate unless the public is as ignorant as possible should be a bad thing, shouldn't it?

    Face it, this is what a small tent getting smaller looks like. A small tent that is about to get demoralized in the upcoming Presidential election. Reality doesn't just have a liberal bias, reality is actually a liberal conspiracy. And don't believe any non partisan fact-checking organizations who say otherwise, they are clearly in the tank for reality.

   gop, lies, empty chair

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.
