  •  It's not that I never lie, but when I lie (6+ / 0-)

    my stomach hurts and I feel tense and ill at ease. It's not something I enjoy doing, and I only do it when I feel it's necessary or better than the alternative for all ("Yes, of course that's a nice-looking dog"). I think this is true of most people. But these Repubs seems to enjoy lying, and lying big, and don't see anything wrong with it. It's what they're best at, I think. They've been doing is so long that they probably don't even know they're doing it. They just say whatever shit they think will work for them whether it's true or not.

    "The 12 foot tall alien ate my homework"

    "I've had sex with 13,346 women"

    "It's not my fault she was wearing such a skimpy outfit"

    "Obamacare will literally destroy America"

    "Homosexuality is like having sex with sheep"

    "Social Security is going broke"

    And they say it because, for years, it worked, and the media (and not a few Dems) let them get away with it. They have to be called on it from now on.
