A Lie Becomes The Truth
At the Corner, Andrew McCarthy (star of the 1987 movie I.Q. Less Than Zero) writes that Michele Bachmann:
said that a number of America’s founders had opposed slavery and worked to end it.
He then claims the Bachmann was right when she said that, and critics of Bachmann(specifically, Geo. Stephanopolous) are wrong.
What Bachmann actually said was:
we also know that the very founders that wrote those documents worked tirelessly until slavery was no more in the United States.
Not "some" founders, but "the very founders" who wrote the founding documents. And those founders lived to see the abolition of slavery!
So Andy lies about what Bachmann said to prove Bachmann was "right." He has to, because he can't defend what Bachmann acually said. If he wasn't a dishonest hack, he'd admit he was wrong and Bachmann is wrong.
