Keep Chuckin’ Those Facts!


We have yet more comedy gold from the most useless website in the known universe.   You will remember that Politifact’s “lie of the year” was given to Democratic arguments about Republican efforts to end Medicare that were, at a minimum, perfectly defensible.   So how does it rate Marcio Rubio’s straightforwardly erroneous assertion that a majority of Americans are conservatives?  Why, as “mostly true,” of course.  Do they have data nobody else has access to?  Nope; their argument is that a plurality is pretty much the same thing as a majority.  Right.

So, to review, Democratic arguments that are consistent with the facts are “pants on fire” lies if they’re inconvenient to Republicans, while Republican statements that are straightforwardly factually wrong are actually true.   Truly hacktacular.
