We Would Have Chosen “Ground Zero Mosque”

“PolitiFact editors and reporters have chosen ‘government takeover of health care’ as the 2010 Lie of the Year. Uttered by dozens of politicians and pundits, it played an important role in shaping public opinion about the health care plan and was a significant factor in the Democrats’ shellacking in the November elections.”


As a Republican I am offended by this attack on my freedom. I blame ACORN.

I have side with Politifact on this one – to even come close, Atlas Juggs would have had to start calling a Muslim community center in Los Angeles a “Ground Zero Mosque”. Hell, even that would be too close to “true” – to *really* match “government takeover of healthcare”, it’d have to be a Jewish community center.

In other words, not simply a radical overstatement of fact but a statement completely divorced from even the most tenuous connection with reality.
