Rhetoric

These guys are debating what Bush's favorite rhetorical tactic should be called:

"...so I called Karen and asked her why she was saying this, and she had this almost Orwellian rap that she laid on me about how things she�d heard � that I watched her hear � she in fact had never heard, and she�d never heard Bush use profanity ever. It was insane.

I�ve obviously been lied to a lot by campaign operatives, but the striking thing about the way she lied was she knew I knew she was lying, and she did it anyway. There is no word in English that captures that. It almost crosses over from bravado into mental illness."

Uhh...guys...this is what the rest of the world calls The Big Lie. Wake up. Why do you think they don't teach us history in (public) school anymore?

Here's another example.
