Always. Be. Lying.


A-always, B-be, L-lying.

 Always be lying!

 Always! Be! Lying!

Romney is vulture capitalist enough to know his customers well.

Romney is smart enough to know that the typical GOP base voter from swamps of darkest Jebusland is no longer functionally human in some very important ways:  they have been trained not to notice or care if their leaders cripple the economy, trash the planet or shit directly in their faces every single day as long as they promise to make uppity, smart-ass Libruls suffer and to dispatch the Scary Black Man back to the depths of their most terrifying racial-inferiority nightmares.

Romney is also smart enough to know that the Beltway media -- who tell America's quivering, cowering Centrist minority what to think -- will let him skate on his lies because the Beltway media is a wholly corrupt institution devoted to defending elite establishment privilege and power and, as such, does not dare start calling out men like Romney no matter what they say or do.

Finally, Romney is smart enough to know that if he can pull in a big enough chunk of the willfully ignorant Center and all of the irredeemably depraved Right, he comes awfully close to the number of votes he needs to win the White House.

Which is why Mitt Romney will go on lying -- baldly, every day, about all kinds of shit -- right up until lying loses its marginal electoral utility.

It occurred to me the other night that if Mitt Romney thought that there were votes to be gained from saying that the Sun rises in the west, it would be the first thing out of his mouth.

Really? The wordmeister DG turned down "Cheating" "Confabulating" "Confusing" "Confiscating" "Calculating" and many many more to say lying? Really?

In some cases I follow Churchill's admonition: "Broadly speaking, the short words are the best, and the old words best of all."

In other cases I don't.

Excellent! Romney is is the "Say Anything" candidate. No need to have a cohesive worldview when you're running against "The Other."
