Lying for the greater good.

The Republicans are spreading so many lies today it quite takes ones breath away, but, rather than be ashamed of this, they want us to know that they are rather pleased with how it's all going and are emphasising that this is part of a larger narrative:

John Feehery, a Republican strategist, said the campaign is entering a stage in which skirmishes over the facts are less important than the dominant themes that are forming voters' opinions of the candidates.

"The more the New York Times and The Washington Post go after Sarah Palin, the better off she is, because there's a bigger truth out there and the bigger truths are she's new, she's popular in Alaska and she is an insurgent," Feehery said. "As long as those are out there, these little facts don't really matter."

They are actually arrogant enough to state that facts don't matter. They really do think the American people are stupid. It underlines everything which they do.

They actually buy into the Bush regime mentality that reality is what they decide it is and they don't think anyone will see through them.

As Barack Obama said, "They must think you're stupid". And the truth is, they do.

Their entire campaign is built around lies, repeated often - even once they have been shown to be lies - because they believe the American people are simply too stupid to see what it is that they are doing. They actually hold average Americans in the deepest contempt.
From the moment Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin declared that she had opposed the infamous "Bridge to Nowhere," critics, the news media and nonpartisan fact checkers have called it a fabrication or, at best, a half-truth. But yesterday in Lebanon, Ohio, and again in Lancaster, Pa., she crossed that bridge again.
She crossed it because, as Feehery points out, "these little facts don't really matter" because he thinks - as does McCain and Palin - that the American people will believe anything that they are told. Because, basically, deep down, they believe the American people are stupid. And these charlatans have the gall to call Obama "elitist"?
