Political Lying

David Harsanyi began his online essay, “The Political Lying Game,” effectively:

There are many brands of truth. Some are poetic truths; others are political truths; and some are staggering exaggerations — or what politicians frequently refer to as “talking.”

The essay’s on the site, RealClearPolitics, and it was posted on September 16, 2008.
