Lying Liars

Or, of course, our betters may believe that we "can't handle the truth", as Jack Nicholson said in "A Few Good Men".

(Coincidentally written by Aaron Sorkin, of "West Wing" fame.)

I don't always assume a politician is lying. But what worries me more is when one says something that is patent nonsense, but obviously believes it.

A liar can be dealt with. A delusional ideologue is another matter entirely. It is very difficult to cure stupid.
