Right Wing Myth-Busting

It's always a struggle for us to decide whether to laugh or to cry when listening to what passes as political dialogue from the Republicans these days. Admittedly, most of the lies and distortions originate from people who like to identify themselves as members of the Tea Party wing of the GOP, but the sad part is that so many Republican party regulars are afraid to stand up to these bullies and to the few big money donors who back them. That and the fact that so many other Americans have been fooled into believing the far right's lies.

This column is dedicated to setting you straight on some of their dubious claims. Just click on the links below to find out where some of these myths originated and what the truth really is.

Feel free to forward stories that you hear and that you have doubts about. We'll research them as we have the time and add them to our list. In the mean time, you can check out or - both of these sites do a pretty good job giving you the straight story.
