PROTESTING TOO MUCH?.... Here's one you just have to love. The latest evidence of the mendacity of the liberal media is this screen shot from Monday's NBC Nightly News. It turns out that George Bush was standing in front of a graphic that spelled out "TAX RELIEF FOR WORKING FAMILIES," but the cropped shot that NBC displayed showed only the letters "ILIE."

Get it? "I Lie." Hah! Those liberal TV news anchors will stop at nothing, will they?

Actually, this is one of those cases where I sort of wish the wingers were right. If NBC had really done this deliberately, it would demonstrate a rare dedication to the truth. As it is, though, the fact that someone even noticed it is probably just evidence that conservatives are a wee bit too sensitive about the whole lying thing. I wonder why?
