Dick Polman analyzes the whoppers. His conclusion:
Democrats might be wise to heed this warning, penned in a letter in 1867: “The most outrageous lies that can be invented will find believers if a man only tells them with all his might.” Credit that one to Mark Twain. In their summer pitch for health care reform, Democrats need to refute the outrageous lies with, at minimum, equivalent fervor.
Because the lies can lead to bad things, such as, for example, the Great and Glorious Patriotic War for a Lie in Iraq.
But Republicans can’t help the lies. It’s all they have left.
