1. Any of Mitt Romney's from the campaign

Any one will do. I vote for the "gutting welfare reform" one.

6. We should do a DU poll and those who want to increase the impact of our vote can vote for the

chosen lie.

I'm all about countering the massive RW propaganda machine. Politifact, crappy as it it, is high profile and so the winner will get a lot of attention.

2. The so-called Apology tour is my choice

I have always been deeply offended by the claim that President Obama did an apology tour.

3. I hate PolitiFact, but I still voted for the "welfare" lie that Robme told over and over again...

...just because the Republicans have been playing the racist Southern Strategy card for decades now.

4. I voted for the "cost of Obamacare"

but there were so many "pants on fire". I would really love Mitt to be the liar of the year.

5. Politifact has no credibilty.

Rachel Maddow has proven that time and again.

7. Romney built the RNC convention around "You didn't build that"

That was my vote.
