  •  seriously, do they believe their own bullshit? (1+ / 0-)

    I've been thinking about this a lot lately.

    especially after watching Rove on election night. and others on the 'inside' melt down as the bubble burst.

    certainly they're counting on their base to believe it. they spent billions over decades to try to achieve this utterly false (re)identification for their party. (and much to our chagrin with a pretty strong record of success*--until Nov 6.)

    [*mostly achieved by re-identifying the real party of Liberty, Opportunity to get ahead and Economic Growth, aka The American Dream™ as the party of "taking your hard-earned money and giving it to the know whos."]

    and I know that they are practiced expert proponents of The Big Lie Technique. repeat it over and over and over and over until it becomes "Truth."

    but do "They" believe it? the guys paid to come up with the shit. the guys paid to disseminate it? the guys paid to repeat it over and over?


    no man is completely worthless, he can always be used as a bad example.

    •  Cheney's advance instructions to hotels (0+ / 0-)

      This leaked a while back. He gave detailed orders about how his room should be prepared to every place where he was going to stay.

      One of the orders was that the TV be tuned to Fox.
