    Not sure if this counts as exceptional honesty or the best joke of the year so far. I do know I actually laughed when I read it.

    This is supposed to be shocking? Or even surprising?

    Politicians lie. Who knew?

    Probably 90% of the Republicans who voted against the Stimulus last year did so because they knew the votes were there to pass it. (Remember the countless earmarks by Republicans who then voted against the bill?)

    I said it was funny, not shocking.
