The 2012 elections have now entered the homestretch. The candidate debates are ramping up, and politicians all over the country are blanketing the airwaves with lies about their legislative records.
It’s not a new problem. Remember the now-infamous quote from presidential hopeful Kerry about the Iraq War: “I actually did vote for the $87 billion before I voted against it.”
Rarely has a politician exposed himself more shamefully than the Massachusetts Democrat did back in 2003. Of course, everyone knows that most politicians do what Kerry did — they are just a lot better in disguising their duplicity.
