Daily Kos: Tell Me Lies, Tell Me Sweet Little Lies

It was surreal. For over an hour on one Friday afternoon, Americans were treated to an event that they haven't seen in years. An intelligent adult, speaking on matters of grave concern to the country with immense political ramifications, in a field in which he was an expert, stood up in front of dozens of top reporters and told ... the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.

It's telling that one man, speaking the truth, made us feel giddy. Immediately afterwards there were comments all over the blogosphere: "Fitz for President!"; "Fitz for AG!"; Fitz for SCOTUS!". What an impression was made by this display of honesty on a nation that is literally starving for it: Truth, the exacting rectitude we hear so often that our country is founded upon and the champion for. The legitimacy that is so rarely practiced by the self-appointed purveyors thereof; It left us swooning. And now we have seen it again, we have tasted it for the first time in so long, and we like the flavor: Nothing can substitute for the truth.
