Politicians lie all the time. Don’t believe me? That’s fine by me, you don’t have to take my word for it, and I don’t expect you will. Go and browse the fabulous Web site FactCheck. They’ll let you know what lies politicians have been telling and demonstrating exactly how they are lies. They even have an Ask FactCheck page where you can ask about something a politician has said.
The St Petersburg Times also offers their own political fact-checking service, called PolitiFact. It’s also very useful.
I recommend frequent trips to both sites, in order not to be swindled by the liars of the Left or the Right.
