What's the point of even having a public discourse when the leadership of a political party treats the truth like a punch-line?
Now would be a terrific time for a real debate. Republicans could -- get this -- raise legitimate objections to the legislation, and raise concerns that -- believe it or not -- are entirely sensible.
But, no. We can't have real debates because we're too busy suffering through idiotic mendacity.
Note to Republican leaders: liars become pathological when the truth works just as well, but you actually prefer dishonesty.
