Some days, Republicans just put a smile on your face, despite the stupid/evil conundrum.

Republican National Committee Chairman Mike Duncan said the team of nearly two dozen staffers at the opposition headquarters will be "fact-checking" statements made by the Obama campaign and by speakers during the convention.

"Just consider this the Ministry of Truth," quipped Dick Wadhams, chairman of the Colorado Republican Party.

Well, I was going to anyway, but thanks for the invitation.

(Hat tip.)

You know, I really struggled with whether or not I should put up the link explaining the Ministry of Truth. And then I thought about the lovely troll infestation the DNCC is creating at this blog and thought, "Okay, well the regular readers probably know what that means, but our recent visitors, less gifted in the neural arts, could probably use some help."
