True to Form, Ed Martin Makes 2010's "Lie of the Year" the Centerpiece of His 2012 Campaign

In his new video announcing his campaign for the US Senate, Crazy Ed Martin declares that Democrats have "enacted a government takeover of health care."  This, our faithful readers will recall, was PolitiFact.com's "Lie of the Year" for 2010. "The phrase is simply not true," the nonpartisan fact-checkers note. And "FactCheck.org, an independent fact-checking group run by the University of Pennsylvania, has debunked it several times, calling it one of the 'whoppers' about health care and saying the reform plan is neither 'government-run' nor a 'government takeover.'"

Lying isn't a new practice for Ed (see here, here, here, here, here, and here), but it's good to see that he's not going to change who he is now that he's on a bigger stage. 

Besides facts, there were several other notable omissions in Martin's announcement video: how Barack Obama and Congressional Democrats are fixing to "take away..the ultimate freedom to find your salvation"; the federal version of his public record destruction initiative; and how a DC-based "taxpayer-funded character assassination" might differ from the one he executed inside Matt Blunt's Jefferson City offices.  I'm sure there are others. 

Here is Ed's video, taped deep inside the Freedom Bunker. 

Strap in.
