A Lie By Any Other Name Would Smell As Sweet

Salon's War Room found a good one today from the Roberts hearing:

ROBERTS: Senator, I was a staff lawyer. I didn't have a position.

The administration had a position, and the administration's position was the two-fold position that you set forth. First, Title IX applies. Second, it applies to the office, the admissions office...

BIDEN: Only to the office, right? It applies narrowly?

SPECTER: Now, wait a minute. Let him finish his answer, Senator Biden.

BIDEN: His answers are misleading, with all due respect.

SPECTER: Well...


SPECTER: Now, wait a minute, wait a minute. They may be misleading, but they are his answers.
Republicans will be Republicans.
