Half-Lies.

Conor Friedersdorf  has a good analysis of Rush Limbaugh’s somewhat, but not wholly, sarcastic opening monologue from his program yesterday.

For some reason, it made me think of the scene from the film Lawrence of Arabia when the calculating diplomat character, played by Claude Rains, says:

“[A] man who tells lies, like me, merely hides the truth. But a man who tells half-lies has forgotten where he put it.”

  1. Great quote. Claude Rains is perhaps one of the most forgotten of Hollywood's golden age. I just saw Caesar and Cleopatra where he played Caesar to Vivan Leigh's Cleopatra. He was remarkable.
