|Carly Fiorina, praying that her fans are nutty enough to buy her nonsense, at|
least until her scam nets her more bucks or sets her up for a job at Fox News.
Now U.S. News & World Report lays it out clearly. Fiorina has doubled and tripled down on her lies and shows no sign of abandoning her lies:
Fiorina has pushed back in multiple interviews. Often, the crux of her argument, beyond sticking to her incorrect description of the anti-Planned Parenthood videos, is that she has not misrepresented the group's actions and that the larger issue is about the character of the nation.
"They're trying to have a conversation about a technicality about a videotape," Fiorina said last week at Christian women's health center in Spartanburg, South Carolina. The center, which does not provide abortions, has become a popular stop for Republican presidential candidates. "The character of this nation cannot be about butchery of babies for body parts," Fiorina said.The "technicality" Fiorina is referring to is that she's lying through her teeth about the "videotape." (BTW, no more videotapes. Digital video, people.)
Carly Fiorina is taking her place among the retinue of lying liars. When the smoke clears, she'll be remembered not as a failed CEO -- though some may remember that -- but primarily as a person who was willing to lie to benefit herself. Contemptible, but there you are.
Personal note to Carly: Hey, babe, what's with wanting to be identified as a liar? Bad life decision, wouldn't you think?
Late new stuff: Salon weighs in with an article entitled "The party of lying liars: Welcome to the frightening new post-truth GOP." Ouch.
