Zeke always wonders a certain question in the run up to an election. You probably do too.
"How do Republicans rationalize in the heads, that most of their ad's and arguments are, well, Bullshit?"
Seriously. I mean if you get ANY of those "Fact Check Email Lists"(Politifact,FactCheck) or if you just watch raw footage and read "non-spun" source documents, it's pretty clear the GOP candidates lie all day long and twice on Sunday.
If you are a Republican, how do you wrap your head around the CLEAR program perpetuated by so many of smears (Obama is a Muslim), Misinterpretations(Obama will raise Middle Class Taxes) or Bold Face Lies(WMD, Swift Boat, Kindergarten Sex-Ed).
And then you get the Candidate themselves, to "dis-associate themselves" and claim that THEIR Campaign would never do such a thing.
I mean, is it a Culturally thing? I know in NASCAR, "cheating" is a HUGE part of the race and pre-race game. Is that how "Conservatives" think? Is it OK to have an "October Surprise" instead of a "well presented Honest Argument"? Is it OK to have a "Hit-man" (Or Woman) say those "Horrible" things that can be "Distanced", even though they words STILL were said and STILL are gonna be believed by some of the population?
Or are Republicans just Evil , Mean and opposed to a "Fair Fight"?
The way I see it, the one thing that Bush, Gibbons, Heller and McCain have in common is that they ALL will cheat at Monoply if you leave the table.
Which is why the Republicans need to add a word to the offical Party Name.
