You have to love this.
Governor Jindall, in his response to the President's address to the nation, told this cute/funny story about some mindless bureaucrat trying to stop boats from coming into New Orleans to help rescue people off of roof tops because they didn't have registration.
He told it like he was there.
Turns out he wasn't.
After 8 years of a President who frequently said things that were not true, that he should have known were not true, now we have the official spokesman of the Republican Party making up a story for his national address.
The number and frequency with which Republicans have said things about the Stimulus package that were simply and clearly untrue is quite breathtaking.
Thank god for sites like FactCheck.Org and PolitiFact.com
These are serious times and there are real disagreements between the parties. For reasons passing understanding it seems like Republicans can't talk about the issues and simply tell the truth.
