Daily Kos says lying about election OK

I generally dislike fisking the same blogger's posts frequently, but Kos and the leftists who refer to themselves as the "reality based community" are really starting to get annoying. The first thing to be discarded in their "reality?" Truth. (emphasis mine)

And thus, the biggest silver lining of this election is how the GOP's victory is thus far being claimed, framed and explained. To that I say, "Let us join that chorus." And we should do so now, because there is immediacy in the post-election window of opportunity.

Marching order #1, therefore, is this: No matter whom you talk to outside our circles, begin to perpetuate the (false, exaggerated) notion that George Bush's victory was built not merely on values issues, but gay marriage specifically. If you feel a need to broaden it slightly, try depicting the GOP as a majority party synonymous with gay-haters, warmongers and country-clubbers. Because I, for one, am tired of hearing whiny complaints from conservatives that, not only do I not have values, but that I fail to properly respect the values of people who are all too happy to buy into, no less perpetuate, inaccurate caricatures of the 54+ million Americans who voted Tuesday for John Kerry.

Criticizing the GOP ain't gonna build us a new national majority. But the process is brick by brick, or perhaps, brickbat by brickbat. We didn't decide the rules of engagement, but that's what they are and so we may as well start firing away.

Besides all but calling us Bush voters idiots (he never actually uses direct name calling...) he claims that it is a Democrat/liberal/leftist duty to LIE to people about the election. Now, I know lies happen, even by the best campaigns and organizations. But encouraging this sort of behavior is despicable. If the a member of your party is telling you that you need to get them back into power by intentionally lying to the American people, it's time for you to find a new party.

By the way, here's some reality for you. Kos raised over $500,000 to support this list of candidates. Guess how many of them won? Zero. Man, reality can hurt sometimes. Which one of us lives in the "reality based community" again?
