We’re running out of ways to say it ourselves. So we quote (again) from the editorial page of an institution that represents the established order but hasn’t let that get in the way of expressing the truth about the Bullshitter-in-Chief and his cronies:
You would think that Senators Carl Levin and John McCain would have learned by now that you cannot deal in good faith with a White House that does not act in good faith. Yet both men struck bargains intended to restore the rule of law to American prison camps. And President Bush tossed them aside at the first opportunity.
Thus sayeth this morning’s New York Times in its editorial, “The Imperial Presidency at Work.” Which reminds us of our post of more than a year ago on Oct. 7, 2004, THE BIG LIE AND THE LITTLE PREVARICATIONS. It solemnly said:
Will America stand still for the corruption of its democracy? That’s the real question voters are about to answer — whether they will accept The Big Lie or repudiate it, whether they will go along with The Liar or throw him out of office.
On Nov. 2, voters will have their chance to redeem America’s reputation for democratic principles. If they do not, if they submit to The Big Lie, if they let themselves be swayed by The Liar and his minions, who’ve upped the ante by amplifying The Big Lie in the debates and on the stump, they will have forfeited any claim to innocence. It’s not as if the voters haven’t been warned
Citing the evidence for the Bullshitter’s arrogance and deceit, and for his regime’s duplicity, can get to be an obsessive, full-time occupation. Sad to say, there is so much evidence that the work is never done.
