That fact that Team Romney is a pack of lying weasels cannot be a surprise to anybody paying even mild attention to current events. Joe was right to call it malarky. Over at the Maddow Blog, Brother Benen has published his latest installment of his weekly series breaking down the lies of Mitt Romney. He points to a new article in The Onion to show how the Mitt-Always-Lies meme is seeping into our popular culture. The Onion headline is ripped from reality:
Romney Proudly Explains How He’s Turned Campaign Around
‘I’m Lying More,’ He Says
There is a lot here that rings true. Towards the end, the article even explains why it is so easy for Romney to bamboozle a lazy media:
According to Romney, amidst all the lies, there is only one thing that remains true.
“I literally have no clue where I stand on any single issue at this point,” said Romney, adding that when it comes to women’s rights, gay rights, health care, the middle class, the economy, or the U.S. military, all he knows is how to lie about them. “I understand what other people want. And what I’ve learned, especially in the past week, is that in order to be a viable candidate for the White House, that’s all you really need to know.”
Following the interview, Romney told various reporters that, if elected, he would save the newspaper industry.
And with that, how about an open thread.
