It's almost as if we can't believe anything anymore. This latest about Harry Reid's new year's eye injury is a story about how some fellow punked some people with a story about how Harry Reid's brother divulged that he beat up Harry on new year's eve. And the story caught on and got circulated.
Here are two reports about this latest: Man Claims He Concoted Story of Harry Reid Getting Beaten Up to Test Media Gullibility and The big lie: Las Vegas man watches as his Harry Reid tale takes off.
The guy's name is Larry Pfeifer, and here's a quote from him published at LasVegasSun.com:
“It was just so outrageous,” he said. “The fact that someone can say something completely false that can destroy somebody’s life, it’s just wrong. Where’s the moral compass?”
He's talking about his own story. But he could just as easily be talking about Harry Reid who boasted about how he was only concerned about helping Obama win the 2012 election when questioned about his lies about Mitt Romney.
Now we don't know who to believe on the topic. Harry Reid himself was so duplicitous as Senator that he may have encouraged similar behavior in others.
I stand by my earlier observation that the "tell" is whether or not Reid sues the equipment manufacturer.
