Dirty Trick of the Day (Nightcap)

This one's just good old fashioned lying:

Teresa Clanton was home doing chores when her phone rang.

An automated voice rattled off names of Republican presidential candidates as if conducting a poll. When Clanton indicated that she supported Fred Thompson, the voice asked if she knew that the former Tennessee senator supports abortion, gay marriage and illegal immigration.

He doesn't.

The McClatchy article from whence this excerpt came has a pleasant little retrospective featuring the Palmetto State's Greatest Hits over the last 30 years...

Which makes this a great time to shill for the documentary coming out this summer on the patron state of South Carolina hardball, Lee Atwater. Should be fun.

MORE: Voila!
