After all, who can know Truth anyway in this brave, new postmodern world? (Just kidding)
Hot Air is taking a poll, though, and Obama seems to be 'winning' in the BEST Democrat Liar Sweepstakes (so far).
Considering how disliked Hillary is and how holy Obama has been made out to be, you might think that Hillary's lie would outvote Obama's. But it hasn't, and I think there's a psychological reason for this peculiarity.
Most people can understand the temptation for the self-aggrandizing lie; the little exaggeration that makes you seem smarter, braver, etc. etc. In the psychology business, we call it "faking good" and people do it all the time on psychological tests--even when they are extremely talented and accomplished individuals. Answers to certain questions often make up what is called the "lie scale" of this type of psychometric test.
But the lie a person weaves to exculpate himself from appropriate condemnation of unacceptable behavior seems (to most people, anyway) less acceptable and frankly has no redeeming characteristics. Particularly if while doing the excusing, you casually throw your dear old grandma to the wolves.
Just sayin'.....I wonder what my readers think?
