GOP Senator: Bushco Dubai deal was a crime
As MEC says, the GOP has gone beyond lying. They invert truth, so that black is white and up is down. The Dubai ports issue really is a classic:
1. (As you say), government ownership of business is bad unless the government is Dubai.
2. Countries that harbor terrorists need to be attacked and invaded unless those countries are Dubai.
3. Countries who so much as talked to Al Qaida before 911 need to be bombed, unless those countries are Dubai.
4. Running guns to and drugs from a terrorist group like Al Qaida is bad unless we're doing it through Dubai.
This is not just hypocrisy. Hypocrisy is telling your kid not to use drugs while drinking a gin fizz. Hypocrisy is when Mom raises daughter to be sexually "pure," but cheats with her boss.
Republicans have perfected a technique in which reality is completely detached from history or present actions and is completely determined by what they would wish it to be.
In other words, Republicans collectively manifest the defining traits of Narcissistic Personality Disorder.
