Opening Nite - Lying Liars Lie And Lie Again

Charles P. Pierce on Opening Nite at the Repug liefest in Tampa, which opened with a speech by the governor of Oklahoma that cleverly omitted the fact that Oklahoma was a government program.

It was an entire evening based on a demonstrable lie. It was an entire evening based on demonstrable lies told in service to the overriding demonstrable lie. And there was only one real story for actual journalists to tell at the end of it.

The Republicans simply don't care.

They don't care that they lie. They don't care that their lies are obvious. They don't care that their lies wouldn't fool an underpaid substitute Social Studies teacher in a public middle school, who would then probably go out one night and get yelled at by Chris Christie. ("They believe in teacher's unions. We believe in teachers," he said in his speech. Yeah, you just don't believe in paying them.) They don't care that their history is a lie and that, by spreading it, they devalue the actual history of the country, which is something that belongs to us.

[...] The Republicans will just tell the lie again. And again. And once more, until people get tired of telling the truth in response.

Never. Or we're done.

Hi guys,

Long time no see, sorry about that.

"They don't care that they lie. They don't care that their lies are obvious."

Lol, you got that right. You should see the crap on J's Cafenette blog ( I personally know Jeanette, have known her for years, and can attest she is the biggest liar in America. She is naturally super-proud to have voted for Bush 4 times (her words, no kidding).

She is also a born-again fuckhead (not surprisingly).

I dedicated a whole article to her, lol:

You might get a good laugh.

Hey Fixer, finished your book yet?
