News flash .. politicians lie.

Should that be acceptable though? Is it cool if cops lie? What about doctors who lie to their patients? Dude has voting power over legislation that impacts all of us and he gets to decide what’s best for us, as a liar.

The adage about politicians lying is normally about unkept policy promises. Not that their entire lives and qualifications are fabricated.

How many can you name that have fully fabricated their educational and professional histories? Beyond the pale of the little white lies and embellishments that everyone, not just politicians, do?

What George Santos did isn't in the same galaxy as run of the mill "shrug, politicians be lyin'!" quips.
