A republic if you can keep it

A member of congress:

I think that everything that the president said and did was in pursuit to get all Americans health care, so, I think, even though he may have said, if you like your decent insurance, your insurance that works, then you can keep it, I think that people really get that. When — he owned it. He said, look, if you misunderstood what I was trying to say, I’m sorry about that. I think that shows integrity.

Yeah, integrity, that’s the ticket.

    So if he said, “You misunderstood my lie.” That shows integrity? That seems a little Orwellian to my feeble mind.

    I’ve heard from that member of Congress before:

    The bottom line is we’re not broke. There’s plenty of money, it’s just the government doesn’t have it.

    It doesn’t much matter what you believe so long as you are not sincere.

    Sincerity is the most important thing. Once you can fake that, you’ve got it made.

    So when a baseless assertion is proven false, that shows integrity? I need a new dictionary.
