Couldn’t resist this article, especially the following tidbits:
. . .political season is just so w e i r d.
The spinners lie constantly. They lie with a straight face. They lie sentence after sentence, relentlessly.
Like the uncanny valley, we don’t really know what to do in the face of non-stop lying. Is this person an alien? Do they think we’re stupid? How are we supposed to respond to the onslaught of disrespect?
I wonder if this election is going to mark the end of classic spin or the beginning of a whole new class of even slicker lying.
All I know for sure is that it gives me a headache.
