Lie with the Cock-n-Bull

September 4, 2012

Fairly-thick fog this morning up here on California’s northern coast, and quiet, too — thickness cushions noise.
My perspective, though, is isolated as there’s plenty of pandemonium and nasty sounds beyond this spit of land curdled next to the Pacific Ocean — it’s going to be shitty-loud all the way from here to November.

Fear for the dumb-ass, whose ears are cocked for shit talk.
US politics is pretty-much in the sewer and there’s not much the average Joe six-pack can do — just pay the f*ck attention, because if you don’t, the cat burglar will most definitely steal the cat.
Or Republicans will walk away with the prize — then we’re all so-totally screwed.

Just as the DNC gets cranked up in Charlotte, NC, my state’s Democratic Party chair opened his mouth yesterday and out came a nasty version of the current GOP, especially serial asshole-liar Paul Ryan — although Burton was pretty-much spot-on, Republican panties got all in a bind.
From Raw Story:

“They lie and they don’t care if people think they lie,” Calif. Democratic Party chair John Burton told San Francisco Chronicle reporter Joe Garofoli.
“Joseph Goebbels – it’s the big lie, you keep repeating it.”
Ryan’s speech was widely criticized for a series of major inaccuracies, including a claim that President Barack Obama’s policies led to a General Motors plant in Wisconsin being closed down.
Burton said that “horse’s ass” Ryan told “a bold-faced lie.”
He added: “He doesn’t care that it was a lie. That was Goebbels, the big lie.”
“He lied on something that was just like, right there,” Burton added.
“What that says is you don’t tell the truth.
If you don’t tell the truth, people start wondering about anything you say.”

The GM plant was closed under George Jr.’s tenure, not Obama’s, but Ryan don’t care — lying on the spin.
The bright-eyed “serious” boy will lie at the drop of a hat, or a start gun — Ryan conveyed the sense he was a regular long-distance runner with some good times in the marathon — all bullshit.
Called on it even from the right-flung Wall Street Journal:

When vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan was asked recently how fast he has run a marathon, the fitness fanatic didn’t hesitate.
“Under three, high twos. I had a two hour and fifty-something,” he told Hugh Hewitt in an interview.
Mr. Hewitt was impressed by the time, which would equate to running faster than seven-minute miles for 26.2 miles. “Holy smokes,” Mr. Hewitt said.
Mr. Ryan’s claim of such a speedy feat drew notice from Runner’s World magazine, which quickly pointed out that if true, Mr. Ryan would be the fastest marathoner to campaign on a national ticket.
Just one problem, as it turns out: It isn’t true.

Lying came natural, the clown “didn’t hesitate” a second to blubber out a falsehood.

Burton later tried to walk back his Goebbels impression, telling the LA Times: “If Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan, or the Republicans are insulted by my describing their campaign tactic as the big lie — I most humbly apologize to them or anyone who might have been offended by that comment.”
Offended?

The GOP whip-lashed back with more shit — enlisting Norm Coleman, national co-chairman of the Romney Jewish Coalition to utter a pants-on-fire, kettle-calling-the-pan-black routine: “President Obama promised to lift up American politics. Unfortunately, some of his supporters, by employing rhetoric that has no place in our political system, are bringing it down to the gutter.”

One hopes the voting US peoples have a better ear than asshole politicians — canards everywhere.
