. . .are Repugnicants so stupid, ignorant and lazy that can't look at public records and/or do simple math, or are they so cynical, callous, and dishonest that facts and truth mean nothing to them?
Now, Republican apologist Mark Halperin is forced to say this about their mendacity on Financial Reform:
"I cannot defend what they're doing," Halperin said. "They are willfully misreading the bill or they are engaged in a cynical attempt to keep the president from achieving something."
Same idea, different words. Watch it here.
Steve Benin at Washington Monthy adds:
Note to Republicans: when even Mark Halperin is calling you out for lying, the conventional wisdom is turning against you.
H/T to Delong, who puts it more bluntly.
When even Mark Halperin is calling Republicans out for lying, it is long past time to shut the Republican Party down.
Couldn't have said it better, myself.
