The GOP did this, Boehner did that, Batty Bachmann said this, Turtle Man said that, the Washington Post lies/distorts/carries Republican water, on and on with it every single time anything happens that looks like the constant GOP siege on our republic gets a little publicity angle. Every time this happens we're painfully reminded how many of us have psychologically joined The Village and now operate as basically local internet correspondents for it instead of independent thinkers with their own agendas. Before talking about something, how about first doing the bare-minimum due diligence to prove to yourself that the subject is even legitimate and not just another Republican mindfuck? Then, figure out what's going on and why. Then determine the best way to go about discussing it, which most assuredly does not resolve to saying "nuh huh" whenever they say something crazy. Your role in such a dialog is shaping reality for those who perceive in that way - so be careful to concede nothing by premise or inference that must be excluded from legitimate discourse.
They are not the subject.
Their lies are not the subject.
What their lies are intended to accomplish is the subject, but not the primary one.
The primary subject is what YOU intend to accomplish with the truth in light of what they intend to accomplish by lies.
The rest is tabloid soap opera that should not waste a breath an ink blot or an electron.
3:03 PM PT: Apparently this rocketed up to a high part of the Rec List for a brief period, and then just spontaneously disappeared - not just from the top of the charts, but from the entirety of the Rec List, as far back as I cared to look, page after page. WTF?
3:11 PM PT: Nevermind about the update above. The Rec List is being bizarre. It must be some kind of Schroedinger Cat Box always stuck halfway open.
