63. You're as literal as a fundie
For ordinary humans, saying "GHW Bush said he wouldn't raise taxes" when referring to his "Read my lips..." statement would not be considered a distortion.

but quit misrepresenting your "opinion" as words that come from Dr. Dean's mouth.

Now you're lying. If wanted to make it look like I was quoting what came out of Dean's mouth, I would have used quotes.

So why don't you provide a link to my lie, so everyone else can judge it for themselves? It's curious how I'm willing to have my lie displayed, but you're not.
