From that great American news source, The Sacramento Bee (actually, I may put it on my list of must-reads):
“We need change, all right. Change from a liberal Washington to a conservative Washington. We have a prescription for every American who wants change in Washington – throw out the big-government liberals.”
– Mitt Romney,

And then the gorilla run knee socks paint porno on the Cadillac. But school laughed and didn’t we sing hats?
Maybe you wonder what the preceding gobbledygook means. I would ask which gobbledygook you mean: mine or Mitt Romney’s? If he’s allowed to spew nonsense and people act as if he’s spoken intelligently, why can’t I? If he gets to behave as if words no longer have objective meaning, why can’t I?
I mean, baffle grab on the freak flake. Really.
If you’re a regular here, you’ve heard me rant from time to time about intellectual dishonesty – to argue that which you know to be untrue and to substitute ideology for intellect to the degree that you’ll do violence to language and logic rather than cross the party line.
And no one does it like Republican conservatives. They are to intellectual dishonesty what Michael Jordan was to basketball: the avatar, the exemplar, the paradigm. They have elevated it beyond hypocrisy and political expedience. They have made it … art.
