A Movement for Liars

Marc Ambinder observes that “it’s hard to find an honest GOPer who actually believes that Barack Obama will benefit in any statistically significant way from ACORN-related voter registration shenanigans.”

And yet Fox News has been wall-to-wall filled with people saying this for days, and CNN’s had these stories in pretty heavy rotation as well. Though it’s hard to find an honest GOPer who thinks this is important, it’s easy to find dishonest conservatives! Still, whether or not lying rightwingers are a dime a doze, they’re just people trying to win. The real issue, as is often the case, is with the “journalists” on CNN who’ve decided to be willing accomplices in this farce.
