Untruths and consequences, by Eric Utter

What does the populace do when those who presume to rule it (and their minions) trot out obvious and blatant lies? From Eric Utter at americanthinker.com:

To any sane person, it appears our elites and their media sycophants are engaging in an unprecedented preposterous statement tournament.  They must get up every day, snicker once or twice, and try to think of the most ridiculous, least verifiable piece of ludicrous prevarication they can attempt to pass off as truth.  And why shouldn’t they?  A significant percentage of Americans seem willing to believe anything at all.
