How to Tell Three Lies in One Sentence

From a statement issued by a Georgia Senator and Representative:

"The fact that the tea parties represent a grassroots movement" -Lie no. 1. The tea parties were created by the same right wing propaganda factories that have been plaguing our discourse for years. "only perplexes the cynics further," Lie no. 2- No one is perplexed by a bunch of ignorant white codgers acting out their delusions in public. "because Obama's election to the presidency has been marketed as the apotheosis of grassroots populism." Lie no. 3- Obama's election was not marketed at all. In fact, it WAS the apotheosis of grassroots populism. I know that, in your political world, there is nothing but disingenuous marketing, so I guess I can't expect you to acknowledge that anything like honesty is possible.

There, that's how you do it. I'm sure these guys will soon be hailed as rising Republican stars. It only remains to see if they can outlie people with a real talent for it, like Sarah Palin and Bobby Jindal.

Note: I want to thank Instapundit for bringing this interesting specimen of mendacity to my attention.
