Liar, Liar, Pants on Fire: Politicians and the Pinocchio Syndrome

Pinnocchio, perhaps?
I’m not sure if this year I just have a low tolerance for political bullshit, or if it seems to be a year where politicians are just full of shit. I’m sick of the distortions, the race/ethnicity baiting, and watching two women in California (i.e., Fiorina and Boxer) have petty fights in the media. I’m sick of all of it and I can’t wait for it to be over already.

Apparently I am not alone in thinking this. Politifact.com has come out with their 2010 election Truth-a-meter, and has ranked this year’s campaign as “Barely True”, with candidates making statements that have a slight truth to it and then a serious distortion to the truth.

Enough already. However, something tells me that we have one more week of this crap and I can bet the campaigns get more and more outrageous.
