    Rep. Steve King Boasts Of GOP Leaders' 'Mendacity' | TPMDC


    Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) literally accused the Republican leadership of the House of being a bunch of big old liars on the floor of the House last night. But that isn't exactly what he meant.

    During a rant on the floor of the House about health care, King used the word "mendacity" -- meaning untruthfulness -- where he likely meant the opposite.

    "As I deliberate and I listen to the gentleman from Tennessee, I have to make the point that when you challenge the mendacity of the leader or another member, there is an opportunity to rise to a point of order, there is an opportunity to make a motion to take the gentleman's words down, however many of the members are off on other endeavors and I would make the point that the leader and the speaker have established their integrity and their mendacity for years in this Congress and I don't believe it can be effectively challenged and those who do so actually cast aspersions on themselves by making wild accusations," King said.

    I hope that ain't a word because I have no idea what you just stated. I do not think anything that starts with a "Ma" are my thing.

    Maybe my point is missed, thats a short post, hence I was focused on a face of a demon dog or wolf demon or something like that. Had the post been a line or two my eyesight would of followed to the end where the period is. Such a short post focused my attention on the Avatar.

    Am I missing something or thinking into this too much.

    He is both a "master debater" as well as a "cunning linguist".
