But why worry about it because a liar calling someone a liar pretty validates they are the truthful one IMHO.
His world is about appearances, alliances, friendships and who you know and what you call the people you don't know. Don't get upset about it but realize what it is and deal with it appropriately. Better still when you realize what their medicine is, you can give them a taste of it free from remorse because much like how they don't endorse your moral standards, they certainly can't live up to their own.
The posts on here that drive the left the most insane aren't those that deal with large numbers of facts or reality based events. They are the ones that deal with labels. You could say leftist policies have millions on food stamps and they don't care. You could say leftist policies have made unemployment chronic and it has remained above 9% for all but 2 months of the entire Obama presidency and they just dismiss it.
They dismiss it with the name and platitudes. You don't have the correct friends. You have the wrong intentions. You are an -ist engaging in an -ism.
Look at all the tea policy stuff they have mentioned. The group hasn't even got any real power. They've sponsored a few candidates who have actually been elected as members of the national party. Yet they fixate on the intentions, the labels, the associations. Those are all that matter.
So if you want to drive them mad. Find the "facts" that attack labels, associations and intentions. Let them go nuts defending sex offenders, lunacy and bias.
