Tell me lies, tell me sweet little lies
Kevin Drum identifies the latest trend: it is becoming acceptable to use the 'L' word when talking about the Bushies. He lists a few recent examples, all but one of which are liberals. But one of them is this absolutely devastating assessment from Tucker Carlson:
"I've obviously been lied to a lot by campaign operatives, but the striking thing about the way [Karen Hughes] lied was she knew I knew she was lying, and she did it anyway. There is no word in English that captures that. It almost crosses over from bravado into mental illness."
The amazing thing is that anyone who watches Tucker Carlson with any frequency knows that Tucker is himself a great practitioner of lying when you know the people you are lying to know that you are lying.
