12. No. Definitely No!

No we should NOT start our own lying and disinformation campaign. Not only do I believe that somebody should stand for truth and decency, but I hope to G*d that our firebrands have realize that not only the Republicans, but the arrrogant, lazy-@$$ $h1t-clowns holding down positions in the editorial and administrative positions in the lamestream corporate new media have institutionalized double standards when it comes to talking about Republicans and Democrats. Republicans are allowed to lie and lie shamelessly, embroider their lies, then amplify them, and the lame-o hacks who call themselves journalists on broadcast media will either accept those lies as truth or blow them off as “boys being boys.”

On the other hand, if a Democrat lies or even makes an accidental mis-statement and gets caught, those same corporate media hacks will treat them as the biggest liars since Joseph Goebbels, no matter how small or trivial the offense, and those guys’ journos will hang that offense around our necks for years.

I wish I’m exaggerating, but I’m not.
