White Lies, Black Lies, and Damn Lies

If one is looking for the truth, the whole truth, nothing but the truth, so help you God, then the political arena is not the prime location to find it. Politicians rank somewhere below used car salesmen and just a fraction above the French on the universal scale of truthfulness.   While many say Presidents rise above crass politics, they have lied. George H. Bush's "Read my lips" came back to bite him and bite him hard. Even some of the greatest statesmen ever have lied. Winston Churchill once mused that the truth was so important that it should always be attended by a bodyguard of lies.   We can forgive Winnie as he was in a 'to the death' crusade against one of the all time greatest liars of all time, Adolf Hitler. Yet Churchill was also allied with another liar that easily tied or surpassed the Führer, Joe Stalin.   But enough cold, dry history, we all lie one way or another.   White lies are telling your wife that dress does not make her look fat. Black lies are telling her the dress does make her look fat just to keep her under your thumb. A damn lie is telling your wife you will be working late while in your pocket is a hotel key for your tryst with another woman.   Now, let us skip forward to current events.
