Messages From Another Planet
As an addendum to my previous post about the Bigger Than Big Lie technique, read the following post by Nathan Newman:
Under Reagan, folks complained about "rosy scenarios" where the budget office always picked the most optimistic estimates. That's not what's happening in the Bush administration, since even optimists can't buy these numbers. These are psychedelic scenarios, hallucinogenic tabs to distract the population from Bush's miserable failure on economic policy.
I think we could quickly run out of adjectives to describe the audacity of the Bush administration. It's almost as if they think that if they just put out the most absurd shit that people will stop talking about it because everyone knows its crap to begin with.
