Lying is good politics

On some bobblehead show this morning, Newt admitted Mitt changed his tune on taxes, completely. He didn't call him a liar this time, but considering Rmoney's real tax plan still includes a huge break for the 1%, it's clearly not true. But as Newt says, it is good politics.

Most of the 60 or 70 millions viewers of that debate haven't been following along. This would have been the first, most specific claim they've heard Rmoney make. The media has been half-heartedly calling him out on it, but those viewers won't see that either. So no incentive to be truthful and we already know Mitt will throw his own sons overboard (calling them habitual liars) to save his sinking ship of fools.

More interesting is the hard core conservative purists swallowed the flip-flop whole, without a peep of complaint. Some of them at least must have noticed the straying from the required orthodoxy, but they don't care. They're too busy crowing about how their guy beat down "Nobama." Which of course accounts for the bump the Mittster saw in the polling in the immediate aftermath.

Going to take the chest pounding cons a while to realize it won't last. In the meantime, let them enjoy their newly "unskewed" polls. Wonder what the Skewing Vetter is going to say when the numbers change again. I saw he was taking credit for scaring the pollsters into accuracy yesterday with his mad vetting skillz.

I thought it was funny as hell when he called his five 'boys' liars.
