Denying Reality With Psychotic Whorish Lies

RECEIVED Tue., Jan. 2, 2007

Dear Editor,
    Denying reality is all the news lately. Jim Hightower mocks Bush for denying the "truth" of an official civil war in Iraq ["The Hightower Report," Dec 29] … not that such hair-splitting semantics are even remotely pertinent to the question. Then Louis Black calls the liberal bias of the media "nonexistent," refers to anti-affirmative action as racist, and dismisses the scourge of illegal immigration as irrational hysteria [Postmarks, Dec. 29]. And of course there is no war on Christmas, no homosexual agenda, and the moon is made of green cheese (NASA research notwithstanding).
    Nobody is buying these psychotic, whorish lies, even the morons who dream them up! Agenda seeking, tortuous rhetoric not only kills any semblance of credibility, it also makes the user a laughingstock.
    Black and Hightower the Hypocrite may need a splash of that "Truth Cologne" after wallowing in their cesspool of insanity all of these years.
