Why?

Why do politicians tell so many easily-found, demonstrable lies these days? Some things are facts, and a couple of interns with access to news archives can prove that a candidate DID work with the other party on bipartisan legislation, that a candidate DID change most of his professed views to align them with the current President, that a candidate DID support government money for local construction projects and is, in fact, still completing half of the project that they're supposed to be against now.

History extends beyond what happened last month. I do mean "history", too, because events, votes, viewpoints, and comments are chronicled and archived and available for review. It's not every day one gets to quote Kid Rock:

"I was born at night, but not last night, baby!"
