Bludgeon,

While I agree that it isn't right, it is the way of both parties, and both have done it in the past.

I don't recall now, but think it was during Bob Dole's nomination convention they did the same, but with more finesse. In stead of the nervous bungling the chair said: "In the opinion of the chair the yeas have it," and moved on.

It isn't right, but neither party will let the delegates change something that they don't want changed. It is the way of things.

To me, in this context, it's meaningless. So please clarify.


Bald faced lie/bare faced lie; another variant of a common phrase meaning the barest, plainest, most obvious wilful kind of deception there is. Missing even the pretension of honesty.

It happened at the RNC last week. They were moving to change some of the proceedures and the Paul supports all said nay much louder than everyone else. The speaker said the Ayes had it and kept going.

Yeah, I'm still confused. I know what a "bald faced lie" is and I know what a "bare faced lie" is. You are correct, those are common expressions. But "dog faced" either means "physically ugly" or "with a hangdog expression" is every context I've ever heard it. So why did you substitute the word "dog?"

All those terms for liar turn up in a google search. But it is becoming obvious that he wanted to take a jab at her physical appearance. Kinda like Ned. Both have that frat boy syndrome they never outgrew.

That's because they go to the same trainer. Fox News has been making fun of her appearance for years. Monkey see...

I actually think she's an attractive lady, but the kind of liar she is makes her an ugly individual, an observation that lends itself to the double entendre. You guys have a nice night, I gotta go.

That's his story and he's sticking to it.
