Some lies are so preposterous that observers can't help but wonder if the liar in question might have a squishy, rotting, grapefruit-sized tumor where their brain should be.
In this case, Hope n' Change is referring to Nancy Pelosi, who is no stranger to lying but has just delivered what might be a career best. Specifically, Nancy has declared that there's no point in Republicans or Tea Party types trying to seek any governmental spending cuts ever again, because "the cupboard is bare. There's no more cuts to make."
That's right- there's not a single government penny being wasted, and not one which can be spared.
No government programs, however redundant, which can be cut. No fraud remaining to be eliminated. No Solyndra-type loans which are ill-considered. In fact, thanks to the complete elimination of "pork," the government's budget has just been declared halal (Allah be praised!)
Despite Ms. Pelosi's invocation of Old Mother Hubbard, we're still not 100% convinced that the government cupboard is as bare as she says it is - especially when the Obozo family continues wracking up multi-million dollar vacations, throwing posh Whitehouse parties, and Congress just magically found funds (perhaps hiding in the sofa cushions?) to pay all of their Obamacare premiums while the rest of us get jammed with higher rates.
So maybe the cupboard really isn't bare. But one thing is certain: the "truths" spoken by Nancy Pelosi and her fellow Democrats are entirely empty.
