There’s a reason the “Michele Bachmann – Bizarro World” icon is at MnProgressiveProject – she makes (stuff) up. Often. Brazenly. Shamelessly.

GOPers do it all of the time – make (stuff) up. In the Minnesota Legislature, these days they are – literally – using Enron’s Accountants to come up with the numbers for their budget bills.

Jeff Rosenberg, over at MnPublius notes:

When I first wrote that the MNGOP was using “Enron-style accounting,” it was meant as just a simple metaphor for their made-up budget numbers. But in a hilarious turn of events, it appears that the state government budget bill numbers were actually produced by Enron’s accountants.

Maybe the local GOPers should do what Arizona GOPer Senator Jon Kyle did, after whipping out this whopper – which simply IS NOT TRUE:

CNN Anchor TJ Holmes called GOPer Kyl’s office about that made up (stuff):

HOLMES: We did call his office trying to ask what he was talking about there. And I just want to give it you verbatim here. It says, ‘his remark was not intended to be a factual statement, but rather to illustrate that Planned Parenthood, a organization that receives millions of dollars in taxpayer funding, does subsidize abortions.’

GOPer Kyl is on the floor of the United States Senate, and ‘his remark was not intended to be a factual statement’??!?

Reasonable people cannot reasonably believe what GOPers say.

And here’s a few examples of that:

And, of course, there’s these…

February 15th, 2009: RNC’s Michael Steele: “You have absolutely no reason – none – to trust our words or our actions at this point.”

July 31st, 2009: You Couldn’t Trust The GOP Then, You Still Can’t Now, And Tomorrow Won’t Be Any Different

“His remark was not intended to be a factual statement.”

Indeed.
