30. They'll never stop

They will never admit mistakes. Because once they start, the dominos will fall.

So they do the opposite and lie big. And the funny thing is...it works. As long as the lie is big enough...as Joseph Goebbels said, “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it."

Cheney and company proved it worked for Iraq. Yes there were a lot of us that didn't fall for the lies, but they know they only have to convince enough, and confuse enough of the rest, and with the help of their friends in the corporate news networks, they can pull anything over.

So The Dick has nothing to lose but to continue. He knows if he just mumbles something like "well, he's doing OK but if the Republicans were in charge we'd be so much better off", which, while Dickish, is the very least he has the right to say it would at least be understandable to say as an ex-politician. But he knows, from experience, that its better to go full tilt into Crazyland and claim the other side to be exactly what his administration was....that is the worst administration in his lifetime.

Combining Rove's playbook of claiming the other side is guilty of what they are with Goebbels playbook of telling the most outrageous extreme limit of that lie and have a zombified press repeating it for you, he is counting on at worst, confusing enough of the politically ignorant and apathetic to skate along.
