Just Because We Lied Doesn't Mean We're Wrong (The Mexican CanardTM)

Days of our Trailers: What he said then and what he says now...

Paul Helmke says The Mexican CanardTM is now to be considered separate from the lie that 90% of Mexican crime guns come from the United States civilian market, which is now to be considered "a red herring."

Paul, we knew that lie was a red herring the first time you repeated it. The problem from your point of view is that we already know you and yours intended it to fool the rest of the country, not the other way around. The pro-gun side of things didn't introduce the idea of the 90% myth, you know--that was you. For you to call your own argument a red herring is kind of a big slip.

I've been saying this and saying this: if you know something's not true, don't SAY it. It's my side doing the lyin' and it just looks STUPID. It's a dumb idea: why would Mexican criminals (who are CRIMINALS, but no stupid, y'know?) buy hard to get and move US AKs and the like, when Brazilian and Cuban units are so much cheaper and already full-auto. I don't like it when my President's people lie, no matter who.
