Politifact: rating prominent politicians’ and other figures’ claims from true to “pants on fire”. Check it.
A few of the ratings I find rather enjoyable:
– The whopper, told by Palin (Republican), was named Politifact’s Lie of the Year: ”
Seniors and the disabled “will have to stand in front of Obama’s ‘death panel’ so his bureaucrats can decide, based on a subjective judgment of their ‘level of productivity in society,’ whether they are worthy of health care.”
Way to go, Palin!
– Glenn Beck, Idiot:
“In the health care bill, we’re now offering insurance for dogs.”
– Rush Limbaugh, R:
“President Obama . . . wants to mandate circumcision.”
You may notice a slight bias on my part. It’s because there is one. Obviously, Democrats make dumb statements too, but these are funnier and, more often than not, more ridiculously illogical.
