Lies and more lies

I went to this This New Yorker webpage, and found a striking ad. (You may have to reload the page a few times to pull up the ad.) It shows a close-up of Richard Nixon's face, with the words "He lied to America" written underneath. The text then changes to this Nixon quote: "I state again to every one of you . . . I had no prior knowledge of the Watergate break-in." Next, you see a picture of George Bush, again with the caption "He lied to America." The text then morphs to this quotation: "...any time you hear the US gov talking about wiretaps, it requires - a wiretap requires a court order." The next screen says: "The Bush NSA spying program: Were oaths of office broken? Were federal laws violated?" And the final screen states: Tell the White House to appoint a special counsel. ACLU. Join us in our work." Rather amazingly, they missed an interim President. The third set up should have been a picture of Clinton. "He lied to America. 'I did not have sex with that woman.'" Hat tip for the New Yorker web page that led me to this ad: Michelle Malkin
