Treason's Truthiness - the People of the Lie

Thanks Arianna Huffington for your post at

Trust us. It's true because we say it is.

What are you going to believe, your eyes or our soundbytes?

It's how they sold us the invasion of Iraq (Saddam-unleashed mushroom clouds could be the logo for the Truthiness Society). And it's how they are trying to sell us the consequences of that invasion as something other than an unmitigated disaster.

You'd think that only a satirist would try to spin the horrors of the last week in Iraq as a sign of progress. But it wasn't Colbert who surveyed the bloody sectarian violence pushing Iraq to the precipice of all-out civil war and declared that the bombing of the Golden Mosque would "likely" turn out to have been a good thing. It was Rove.

And it wasn't the irreverent caption writer of Colbert's "The Word" who put up chyrons asking "'Upside' to Civil War?" and "All-Out Civil War in Iraq: Could it Be a Good Thing?". It was Fox News.

And it was George Bush, the walking, talking, swaggering, shoot-from-the-gut embodiment of truthiness, who went in front of the American Legion — as the death toll in Iraq was hitting 130 in the previous 48 hours — and said, "I'm optimistic... Out of negotiations now taking place in Iraq, a free government will emerge that will represent the will of the Iraqi people, instead of a cruel dictator, and that will help us keep the peace."

Helen Thomas long time bad ass journalist who has been confronting treason, relentlessly...courage and class the epitomy of courage in the face of cretins who made their money robbing public coffers then act like they worked hard to get there... (and that God had something to do with it).

The Christian Coalition had people outside polling stations with hand-outs stating a vote for Bush was a vote for GOD (you know the acronym
for Greed Oppression and Denial)

What about this war mongering cretin of commerce reminds ANYONE of Jesus?

This entire period of time should be known as the Evil of the People of the Lie ...all the while claiming they are speaking truth. Remember what happened to the boy who cried "wolf" too many times Mr. Bush? After awhile NO ONE BELIEVED HIM ANYMORE.... NO ONE.
