Observations on politics, the media and life in Massachusetts and beyond from the left side of the road.

The GOP's divorce from the reality-based community has been on full display in Tampa as the party continues its assault on truth, justice and anyone else's vision of The American Way.

This is obviously not a new theme in the fact-based community, with these missives from Bill Keller and Charlie Pierce as elegant and angry starting points.

What's more amazing to me is how open Republican strategists are about their campaign of deceit, starting with what once would have been a startling admission by Mitt Romney pollster Neil Newhouse in defending a blatantly false ad:
"We're not going to let our campaign be dictated by fact-checkers."
The party that ran up a massive deficit with two credit card wars and an unfunded Medicare drug benefit is now preaching thrift and sacrifice -- for everyone other than the rich and the military. And their weapon of choice is The Big Lie, repeating falsehoods to the point they become accepted as fact.

And we have two more days of unfettered lies ahead.
