The Triple Crown of mendacity! That will be something Mitt can look backward to with pride during his long years of retirement and disgrace.
Update This just in: the RBC gives the ad its four-star “So Full of It His Eyes are Brown” rating. That completes Romney’s Grand Slam of Lying.
Footnote Yes, I know I’m making a big fuss about a fairly trivial lie. But Romney’s habit of lying – worse, his utter indifference to the difference between truth and falsehood – is as central to this campaign as racism, nativism, misogyny, and economic feudalism. Lying isn’t just what Romney does; it’s who he is.
