The evidence of the Fox News / Frank Luntz takeover of the Republican Party continues to pile up. Last night, Maddow tore into the latest lie regarding reconciliation. I honestly can’t think of another instance this obvious in which prominent, very serious Republicans have both lied and contradicted their own positions and votes.
Maddow is correct on so many levels, but especially the point that it’s one thing to disagree on policy — or even to spin the policy — but they’re just outright lying here. Big Steve Doocy lying. Thank goodness at least one (or two, including Olbermann/O’Donnell) members of the establishment press are exposing this lie for what it is.
