Thom Tillis moves into first place for "lie of the year"

Republicans love to call Obama's statement about keeping your insurance under the ACA the "lie of the year". Of course it's not even a lie, because the ACA was adapted to ensure that people could keep their really shitty plans for a few years if that's what they needed to do to prove that they hate, hate, hate Obama.

Thom Tillis, who thinks that Kay Hagan and Barack Obama are the same person, loves to talk about Senator Hagan repeating the so-called "lie of the year".

But Thom, who's a consummate liar himself, has just moved into first place. Heck, he's probably cinched "Lie of the Decade". Discussing the NC budget debacle, during which he's shown himself to be ineffective and inconsequential (on those occasions when he bothers to show up), here's Thom lying through his teeth:

Asked if his desire to go campaign could be influencing budget negotiations, perhaps allowing his Senate colleagues to apply extra pressure to get their way, Tillis said the state budget was "priority No. 1."

The campaign, he said, "has virtually no impact on anything we're doing here."

Comments

Tillis then added

"Also, pigs will fly out of my ass at noon tomorrow."

And that scored higher on the truth-o-meter than his original statement.

He further added...

Brilliant

And we thought that Thom was incapable of telling the truth. But on rare occasions, he can!

His parents must be so proud!
