How they do it

Fox news took footage from September of Joe Biden quoting John McCain saying the fundamentals of the economy were strong, and used it as a sign that Democrats are now singing a different tune on the economy.

After the segment, Fox News’s Martha MacCallum said, “All right, well the mantra for the weekend is clear, looking at what was said over the course of the shows on Sunday.”  Except Biden’s quote wasn’t his own and it was from September 2008.

And that’s not nearly as bad as RNC Chairman Michael Steele’s dipsy do on Global warming.

“Thank you, thank you,” he said. “We are cooling. We are not warming. The warming you see out there, the supposed warming, and I am using my finger quotation marks here, is part of the cooling process. Greenland, which is now covered in ice, it was once called Greenland for a reason, right? Iceland, which is now green. Oh I love this. Like we know what this planet is all about. How long have we been here? How long? No very long.”

I’ll never understand the desire to put your head in the sand, ignore any sort of desire for intelligence and be okay with that.
