My Favorite Line From Democratic Convention
Re: My Favorite Line From Democratic Convention
That's a good one.
My favorite so far, was from the Democratic Convention.
The Republicans set-up some kind of "War Room" to check facts during the convention. The hilarity is what they called themselves.
Republican National Committee Chairman Mike Duncan said the team of nearly two dozen staffers at the opposition headquarters will be "fact-checking" statements made by the Obama campaign and by speakers during the convention.
"Just consider this the Ministry of Truth," quipped Dick Wadhams, chairman of the Colorado Republican Party.
Apparently, this guy has never heard of the George Orwell book Nineteen Eighty-Four, in which, the Ministry of Truth is described as;
The Ministry of Truth is involved with news media, entertainment, the fine arts and educational books. Its purpose is to rewrite history and change the facts to fit party doctrine, for propaganda effect. For example, if Big Brother makes a prediction that turns out to be wrong, the employees of the Ministry of Truth go back and rewrite history so that any prediction Big Brother previously made is accurate. This is the "how" of the Ministry of Truth's existence.
