Ted Cruz: Spectacular Liar. Donald Trump: Consummate Bullshitter. Sarah Palin: Both


Ted Cruz is dangerous because he is a “spectacular” liar. He is conniving, purposeful, and strategic about how and when he lies.

Contrast Donald Trump and Ted Cruz.  Trump doesn’t seem to be lying, but rather, he is a consummate bull-shitter.  Philosopher Harry Frankfurt defines bullshit as a form of communication aimed to obscure the matter of facts being discussed by using the words that are neither necessarily true nor false. This definition hinges on a crucial distinction between a liar and a bullshitter. Unlike the liar, who hides things about himself in an attempt to lead us away from a correct apprehension of reality, the bullshitter hides that “the truth-values of his statements are of no central interest to him.” In other words, bullshitter doesn’t care about what the truth is. He just talks as it suits his purposes.

 

 

Sarah is a rare combination of the two.  She has endorsed both.

She lies.

She is also a bullshitter.

  1. I keep reading that Cruz paid Amanda Carpenter a large sum of money to keep her mouth shut and that nine months after she and Cruz attented the Republican convnetion she gave birth to a son that looks nothing like her husband, but just like Cruz. Also, that Cruz misappropriated campaign funds to pay Carpenter. Makes you wonder why the media is covering for him.

  2. I just read that Cruz is vetting Carly Fiorina as a V.P. candidate. Imagine that pair of vipers in the white House. Nothing good can come from that.

    If there was ever a compelling reason to vote Democratic this fall, the specter of this twosome in power should be that reason.
