Adding to the list

Add to the list of right wing propaganda the latest on federal salaries... perhaps even more insidious than how they destroyed ACORN with lies and cost Shirley Sherrod her job, now they broaden their attack started in the 1980's which is essentially - government is not only bad, it's the enemy. In this case if it wasn't for those greedy Federal employee's that make twice what those in the private sector make, we'd all be much better. Of course it turns out their "study" was comparing the salaries and benefits of the average WalMart employee with a NASA scientist... no matter, the damage has been done. Seemingly reasonable people have posted the link to all of their facebook "friends" and Hannity, Rush, and the rest have a couple of weeks of talking points. Facts don't matter, the truth doesn't matter, just get 51% to believe a lie and their mission is complete.
