Mendacity is Courage

Yes indeed, the 2004 Orwell Award, granted to those who lie in order to create new realities in the minds of people, is now being awarded by the National Conservative Union to Zell Miller and the Swift Boat Liars for Bush.

Of course they don't call it the "Orwell Award". They call it the "Courage under Fire award". Interesting, that in NCU NewSpeak "courage" means "willingness to lie."

Ground rules: Comments that consist solely of insults, fact-free talking points, are off-topic, or simply spam the same argument over and over will be deleted. The penguin is the only one allowed to be an ass here. All viewpoints, however, are welcomed, even if I disagree vehemently with you.

WARNING: You are entitled to create your own arguments, but you are NOT entitled to create your own facts. If you spew scientific denialism, or insist that the sky is purple, or otherwise insist that your made-up universe of pink unicorns and cotton candy trees is "real", well -- expect the banhammer.
