What the hell is wrong with people who vote for Democrats? They vote for people who will lie about the smallest thing, even when there is no reason to lie.
Last night I watched Senator Harry Reid say something to the effect of being "saddened" that they didn't get to vote on John Bolton's nomination to the UN, and then go on to blame the lack of a vote on the Bush administration's refusal to hand over every document in the country that has any pertinence to Mr. Bolton including, I assume, his 1st grade report card.
Harry Reid was not "saddened" by the lack of a vote. Quite the contrary, it was exactly what he was aiming for.
Why lie about that? Think about it.
He could have just said that he was glad that the vote was postponed because he disagrees with Mr. Bolton on ideological grounds, and that he wanted time to rally more support for his views.
Nobody would have faulted him for that. Yet he lied. Why?
I can almost see the reason people with no principles (other than Power At All Costs) would lie about bigger issues, but why lie about something so trivial and obviously untrue? It's pathological.
My ex-wife was like that. Lying was so ingrained in her, that she would lie about the most mundane things. It was a knee-jerk reaction. It was so ingrained in her, that she didn't even realize she was doing it half the time. It was just one symptom of some deep psychological problems.
Just like the Democrats in Washington, she was vaguely aware that the way she thought wasn't quite right, so she was always on the defensive. She considered any question to be a possible (probable?) attack and would lie about it to put herself in the best position to defend herself. Or so she thought.
The fact is, most of her lies were so silly and childish, that they were utterly transparent. Again, just like the Democrats.
And yet, almost half of the country votes for these people. Yes, I married one, but I eventually got rid of her when it became clear that it was never going to change and was seriously harming our family (country).
Will your "Joe-six-pack" Democrat ever do the same?
