Liar, Liar, Pants On Fire

It turns out the woman from Texas who claimed an Obama supporter robbed then mutilated her face made the whole thing up. Did she not think she would get caught?

I just didn't see her point.

I was afraid of this. Why would you do something like this? I hope the little snit keeps the backwards b as a reminder of what stupidity looks like.

Well, regardless of who wins, the one good thing to come from this election will be that once it's over you won't have so many of those kind of idiots.

No, we'll just have a new crop of idiots because whoever wins the word "Racist" and it's various synonyms will be an almost daily occurrence. If McCain wins it'll be because America is a racist nation and not ready for a Black man as it's leader and if Obama wins every criticism of him will be labeled racist.

Hell, even you play the racist game. it seems that you folks over in the US hate 'Socialists' as much as you hate Blacks anyhow.

"it seems that you folks over in the US hate 'Socialists' as much as you hate Blacks anyhow."

You don't for a second think that I was serious do you? That was as the most overt 'wind-up' that I could think of...

The intention was to highlight how stupid both the 'racism' and 'socialist' claims are. Obama's not a socialist - it just seems like the best fear-smear for a democrat... in the same way that it is ridiculous to suggest that you have to be racist to not vote for Obama. I'm sure some that some racists won't vote for him, but it's an entirely different thing to suggest that anyone who doesn't is racist - that's just stoopid, as stoopid as suggesting he's a socialist.

You don't have anything close to socialism or socialists over there (not in the mainstream). That is a country that thinks that universal health care is socialist, it's not, it's a policy of liberal democracies (as seen in liberal democracies around the western world, but way too 'left' for US).

To call anything slightly 'left' 'socialist' is just like calling anything right 'fascist', it's more of that binary (absurd) thinking that I once put down to the US two party system. Other countries don't condemn anyone who is left of centre as socialist (or right as 'fascist')

I still think you'll be better-off once the fake-an-attack-for-political-gain type idiots are over the election, sure they'll move on to other thing idiocy, but it will be a day-to-day idiocy, rather than stoopid turned-up to 11!

How am I supposed to know when you're joking? Just about every comment you leave about America and it's inhabitants you essentially call us backwoods hillbillies who've yet to evolve.

"How am I supposed to know when you're joking?"
that's a fair question, part of a good wind-up is in making people question whether you are serious or not, if they are open-minded it makes people question what they believe (... but if you believe that that I think you're all 'hillbillies', then it just makes it worse)

"every comment you leave about America and it's inhabitants you essentially call us backwoods hillbillies who've yet to evolve"
I've nothing against the american people, only against stupidity in government, and whatever it is that makes people do stoopid things like faking political attacks and running off to the media.

Believe it or not, I think we want the same thing, an idiot-free america, even if we don't always agree on the sources/nature of idiocy.
