TIM CARNEY: Is David Axelrod Lying About Lobbyists?

I really try to avoid accusing people of lying, because one precondition of a lie is that the speaker knows what he is saying to be false. We simply can’t know what another person’s state of mind is. Often, comments come across as lies that are really misperceptions or ambiguous statements.

But what Axelrod said about the revolving door on CNN yesterday (highlighted in this Charlie Spiering blog post headlined “Tim Carney’s Head Just Exploded”) is not just demonstrably false, but it’s hard to imagine an intelligent human being in Obama’s inner circle not grasping how truly false and misleading it is.

Shocking.
