There was once a time in America when facts and truth mattered. Then the modern Republican Party happened. And now everything is corrupted.
From Mitch McConnell, the Republican leader in the Senate, describing the Obama campaign on Fox News last Friday:I would add, unnecessarily, that Fox News is the absolutely best place to tell lies. After all, Fox News watchers know less about current events than people who watch no news at all. Imagine that.
What they’re trying to do is intimidate donors to outside groups that are critical of the administration. The campaign has rifled through donors' divorce records. They’ve got the IRS, the SEC and other agencies going after contributors trying to frighten people and intimidate them out of exercising their rights to participate in the American political discourse....Of course, the temptation of anybody in power is to try to silence your critics.If that were true, I'd be the first to call for Obama's impeachment. But it's not, of course. McConnell just figures he can say whatever he wants and no one will really call him on it. And he's right about that.
