He was a liar

A lot has been said about David Broder due to his recent death but I have just one thing to say: He was a liar in the service of Republicans. His lie about Senator Edmund S. Muskie of Maine supposed breaking down in tears helped Nixon win in 1972, and his vicious attacks upon Democratic politicians over the years helped the election efforts of many a Republican. He was, in the end, a lying hack. And, alas, not unusual as such.

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.
