Quotation for Today: Polecats And Skunks (Putois et les mouffettes)

In the quotation for today, we are offered another example of how a certain politician has an estranged relationship with the truth.

“I don’t object to being outspent, I object to lies. I object to negative smear campaigns.”
Newt Gingrich, Republican presidential candidate.
Mr. Gingrich's comments were aimed at fellow Republican candidate, Mitt Romney. Mr. Romney, appearing on the MSNBC show "Morning Joe," denounced Super-PACs (well-financed, unregulated political action committees) while also claiming he could not communicate and influence Romney-friendly Super-PACs that were "criticizing" Mr. Gingrich.

Now that you have ceased laughing, I agree this could be another case of the 'polecat rebuking the skunk for its stench.'
