Monday Open Thread

Over the weekend the teabaggers came to DC to protest the Obama administration. As John pointed out, they have been lying all along about health care reform in hopes of getting people scared of change so it shouldn't be too surprising that they also have been spreading misinformation about the size of their coalition. While the fire department has said that there were 60,000 - 70,000 there, the teabaggers are claiming that they had anywhere from 1.5 million to 2 million people there. Now 70,000 is still a decent showing, but it loses it's impact when the teabaggers are so desperate that they have to inflate their crowd by a factor of more than 20. It certainly makes it seem like they believe that if they lie enough all of their claims will come true.

Feel free to chat away about that and other topics.
