Politicians are known to be willing to say and do anything to get elected. In my opinion, the right has elevated this characteristic of public office to new heights. No lie is absurd enough, no premise empty enough to resist embrace by the right.
Don ‘t know if you’ve seen this, but if you watch Rachel Maddow, you may know that freshman senator Scott Brown (R-MA) has been trying to raise money by claiming that Maddow intends to run against him. Maddow’s repeatedly debunked his claim but Brown seems undeterred.
In typical Maddow fashion, she presented this clip to leave no doubt. Clever, Rachel.
