It's funny because it's true.

Thanks for the link. That Wikipedia article is wonderful, though those of us who actually keep truthiness in our guts have no need whatsoever to refer to it.

Interesting Wikipedia article. I get the impression that "truthiness" also allows for more refined lying. The older "half-truth" seems more specific to one lie at a time, whereas "truthiness" permits a cloud of lies at the service of an agenda; or maybe a general overall authoritarian air that is peppered with a few half-truths and many lies. Fox News commentators for example.

Diversity, independence, innovation and imagination are progressive concepts ultimately alien to the conservative mind.

"TAX AND SPEND" IS GOOD! (TAX: Wealthy corporations who won't go poor even after taxes. SPEND: On public works programs, education, the environment, improvements.)
