Politifact's "Lie of the Year"

The votes have been cast, the chads have been inspected, and the winner of political truth scorekeeper Politifact's "Lie of the Year" is: "The Government's takeover of health care." The "Republican talking point" was judged "the most pervasive falsehood of the year" by the St. Petersburg Times' Pulitzer prize winning site feature.

Our nominees for fools of the year: (tie) the "mainstream media" and Democratic political leadership for letting the Rethugs get away with this whopper.
