Polifact saves world says Polifact

Atrios is right, pathetic:
Yes, PolitiFact is dangerous. We have disrupted the status quo because we're doing what journalists should have been doing for a long time — holding politicians and pundits accountable for their words.
At this rate we can imagine Polifact's other holdings of accountability...

*Ron Paul not racist, he wasn't at any cross burnings.
*Newt Gingrich not serial philanderer, that requires three-mistresses at a time says Polifact ... therefore Mitt Romney not much of a Morman as well.
*Sarah Palin may be able to see Russia, we can't really tell.

PoliFact knows all...other than checking to make sure.

2012 PolitiFact Lie of the Year: "Sky is blue" tied with "sun rises in east" tied with "Earth is round.".

The sky has no color. Our perception of color derives from refraction of the sun's rays! Pants on fire!

The sun doesn't rise -- the earth turns! Pants on fire!

The Earth isn't round -- it's a slightly oblate spheroid! Pants on fire!

The right wing noise machine has to invent tools like Politifact to use on Kamikaze missions to push the really big lies. Guess they've got to manufacture another one -- the Politifact brand is toast.
