Republicans don't care about the "Lie of the Year" -- so why should Democrats?

I'm a bit puzzled by all the hand-wringing over the totally meaningless PolitiFact stuff.

As I've pointed out before, until PoltiFact's "lies" are recognized and enforced by the legacy media -- that is, until NBC or CBS or CNN or the NYT says, "Sorry, you lied about this -- you can't come back on the air or in print until you correct the record" -- any designation by PolitiFact is effectively meaningless.

There is absolutely no for Republicans to stop lying about stuff. They haven't stopped saying "death panels" or "government takeover" over the past two years, despite winning PolitiFact's award.

Pissing in the wind.
