Democrats don't mind lying representatives?

One nice thing about being a Democratic representative is that your constituency doesn't really mind if you lie to them, so long as you beat the Republicans.

But I'm guessing even the most cynical Democratic end-justifies-the-means voter would rather their representatives not be THIS honest about it.

From Youtube, we have a town hall meeting with Democrat Congressman Paul Kanjorski. This happened a long time ago, last August in fact.

Here's what Paul said:

“I’ll tell you my impression. We really in this last election, when I say we…the Democrats, I think pushed it as far as we can to the end of the fleet, didn’t say it, but we implied it. That if we won the Congressional elections, we could stop the war. Now anybody was a good student of Government would know that wasn’t true. But you know, the temptation to want to win back the Congress, we sort of stretched the facts…and people ate it up.

Let me translate that for you Democrats. He said that ANYBODY who knows about government would know the Democrats couldn't stop the war. But the Democrats KNEW that the poeple who vote for them are stupid, and would eat up any lie they were told without question.

The Republicans are in trouble because the average Republican voter is smart enough to know when they are being lied to, and they actually care about things like honesty and integrity.

So far, the average Democratic voter has shown little concern with being lied to.

Here's the video:
