The absurd untruths in Kavanaugh’s opinion regarding Wisconsin, along with the thousands of lies told by Trump and the flip-flopping of Senate Republicans regarding their bullshit rule about seating of a Supreme Court justice during an election year strongly suggests that dishonesty is more than just a necessity for Republicans to do business. It’s a feature.
Each time their supporters agree with their blatant lies, they further cement their loyalty. They show that they’re willing to follow Republicans along any path as long as they appeal to their anger and nationalism.
We’ve reached a point where Republicans would have fewer supporters if their lies were more believable.
This is truly Orwellian.
