"FAKE BUT ACCURATE." It makes perfect sense. To the Leftist mind. They do NIT even see the INANITY of it. "FAKE BUT ACCURATE." Rathergate was FAKE BUT ACCURATE. Newsweek's KORANGATE was "FAKE BUT ACCURATE."
To the Left, "fake but accurate" means that a lie or a fiction might get at a higher truth than the facts.
You know what the REALLY scary thing is? Leftists really REALLY believe this.
Real truth - the LITERAL TRUTH - is not as important to the Left as stuff that FEELS truthful, as the FIGURATIVE TRUTH. That's why they come up with stuff like: BusHitler/AshKKKroft/Blood4Oil/Bush-lied; people died.
And it's why they so often argue analogically ("Zionsim is racism/Sanctions were infanticide", and use metaphors (like "Nuclear Option"), and coin coded synonyms, like: Neocon is code for Likudnik which is code for Zionist which is code for International Jewish Banking Conspiracy/CFR-Bilderberger, blah blah blah.
Unfortunately for the Left - and fortunately for the rest of us - figurative thinking, analogies, and code-words are NO SUBSTITUTE for good-thinking, logic and the truth.
Which is why the Democrats are in REAL TROUBLE: they have more affinity for the Loony "FAKE BUT ACCURATE" Left than they do for Middle America.
