See? Here we are quoting facts from the 'Congressional Quarterly' and the WP. Yes, that means a lot to you and me. However, facts didn't win us much in the last election. Reid doesn't care about facts, obviously. Neither does Pelosi or Obama and his entire team. Can we not play this game, too, somehow? Remember how much of a cultural joke we made of Reid when he said: "Word on the street is Mitt hasn't paid taxes", turning it into: "Word on the street Reid is a (insert derogeratory description here)". Or, Obama's "You didn't build that" into: "Yes, I built this". We should focus on facts, yes. Present truth, yes. Yet I think we can still turn the cultural jokes around on these fools because I think overall we're smarter.

oh yes please Jonathan! I am sick to death of facts and reason. Lies are what we needed to win the election. We are too nice. Too fair. too kind by far. the Bible says something about the need for "shrewdness." We need to be shrewd!

The concern I have for us is that we make sure not to cocoon ourselves in our own conservative world. As painful as it is, it is worth going to HuffPo and DailyKos. Hey - at least they are honest about where they are coming from, as opposed to the NBCs, CBSs and ABCs of the world who seem to think they're unbiased.

But when there, or on Facebook (yes, I know it's painful) or any other social space where we're exposed to folks of different political idealogy (and they're exposed to us), it's incumbent on us to speak our truth respectfully, while making a bit of a mockery of the other side's hyperbole and untruths.

btw... a lecture on bipartisanship would go way over Reid's head. He needs a lecture on being a respectable human being.

Believe me: This isn’t the first time our vaunted Senate Majority Leader has made baseless accusations with little or no evidence (via The Daily Caller):

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Wednesday he was “very comfortable” with the prospect of defending an open seat in his chamber should Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry be tapped for a Cabinet position, and slammed outgoing Republican Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown, who would likely run to replace Kerry.

“I saw during the campaign his plea for bipartisanship,” Reid said of Brown, who ran as a moderate and independent Republican willing to work across the aisle...
