It was cute on Saturday night that people armed with talking points from whatever Team-Obama Bat-Cave dispenses lies-on-the-fly were claiming that Stupak does not expand Hyde. But some of the faithful may have believed it to be true because it feels good to think it.

By Monday, not so cute. KO and Rachel and NOW, NARAL, Planned Parenthood, the leaders of the House pro-choice caucus... even people like Dylan Ratigan with no obvious connection to the baby-killing industry, but who understand disparate impacts of policy in a competitive environmet... so many folks involved in this conspiracy to pretend Stupak is a new roll-back of reproductive health access and women's rights in general.

By Tuesday it is just people intentionally peddling a lie.

This happens at least once a week. Something unpopular happens. People who acknowledge the truth of it are smeared by the usual suspects as trolls or so outside the mainstream as to be deserving of ostracization.

Some lame distortion is peddled by the usual suspects as "debunking." Others flock to thank them for "setting the record straight."

A day or two later the original lie is believed by no one but we are already on to the next lie.
