Crow? Or eat your words? The Right has chosen.

Politifact has named their Lie of the Year for 2011“Republicans voted to end Medicare”.

Sayeth the right wing media today: Politifact heroically speaks the truth! It accuses Democats of perpetrating the biggest lie of the year. Wow! See? We told you so.

Sayeth the right wing media before today: They’re liberal leaning! Don’t trust what they say! Well known liberal bias! Tool of the librul media! Rush said so!

And so it goes.

(The 2010 and 2009 choices indicted Republicans, and on the same subject but, well, you know . . .)
