Once again, Liberals just make shit up…

Or to put a bit more bluntly, they have to to LIE in order to promote their agenda.
Today’s example, former congresscritter from Colorado, uber-liberal democrat Pat Schroeder used results from a single poll to make the following statement,

“The Karl Roves of the world have built a generation that just wants a couple of slogans: ‘No, don’t raise my taxes, no new taxes.’ It’s pretty hard to write a book saying, ‘No new taxes, no new taxes, no new taxes,’ on every page.”

SF Chronicle columnist Debra Saunders did actual real reporting and examined the poll the hard far left extremist Schroeder referenced. The results she found make the liberal democrat pat Schroeder either to have a severe reading comprehension problem, or is a flat out liar.

Maybe you shouldn’t pay any attention to me. According to Schroeder, as a conservative, I’ve got a bumper sticker for brains. Silly me, I looked into the poll – which liberals have hailed as proof of their intellectual superiority – and there’s not a lot there in “the whole picture.” The poll found that among people polled who read at least one book in the last year, liberals read nine books and conservatives read eight.

When I called Michael Gross, associate vice president of Ipsos public affairs, to find out more about the Ipsos poll, he told me the one-book difference “is within the margin of error, it’s not a statistically significant difference.”

Then again, because the poll did not ask people if they read newspapers or magazines, Gross noted, “I don’t think it says anything about people’s general level of information.”

Then there’s the quality issue. A person could read nine romance novels in a year and qualify as Aristotelian by Schroeder’s logic.

In her rush to brand the right as bunch of illiterates, Schroeder had the poor sense to go after an avid reader, Karl Rove, who has been winning a heated competition with President Bush as to which of the two can read the most books. Rove recently told Rush Limbaugh that he beat Bush last year. The Score: Rove, 110 books; Bush, 94.

Once again, it becomes clear that the far left extremists have to actively avoid the truth (i.e. they have to lie) in order to promote their agenda.
