Palin topped even herself at the Iowa Freedom Summit, with a word-salad that was just begging to be set to music

From Lauren's email to me this morning:

Palin's epic adlibbing after her teleprompter broke at a recent appearance was almost a song in itself . .

Did they just actually back down from a false story? Like, OMG!

From Lauren's email to me this morning:

last week's apology/retraction (for the false 'Muslim no-go-zones' story) deserved a musical celebration!

Doonesbury snarkitude-- "Fox": If rumor "proves to be false, we STILL pass it on!"

doonesbury snarkitude roland hedley fox lies

How do I love thee, Garry Trudeau? Let me count the ways: 1. Your snarkitude. 2. Your snarkitude about Fox. 3. Your snarkitude about Fox spreading lies and propaganda based on rumor and/or headlines of their own creation. 4. Your snarkitude as a vehicle for telling the truth. 5. Did I mention your snarkitude?

Bill Maher touched on all those Republican lies on his HBO show, "Real Time." You can watch the video of that segment here. He referred to the GOP habit of perpetuating provably false b.s. as "Zombie Lies." They keep schlepping around threatening real journalism and democracy itself, way after their apparent demise, influencing voters despite being utter fiction, figments of what's left of conservative minds (assuming they had minds to begin with).

Which brings us to Trudeau's "Doonesbury" strip, in which he brings journalist Roland Hedley back to skewer the Fox fact-mangling machine. Hedley welcomes us to another edition of "Inside Fox News" in which he reports about their "elite team of mongers" who "break rumors." And what rumors they are! He ticks off a list of memorable Fox lies from President Obama being Kenyan to the War on Christmas to "Islamic sleeper terrorist Bowe Bergdahl."

Take it away, Roland:
