You don’t have to be a body language expert to see the stark difference between a person speaking truthfully versus someone who dissembles, stammers, interrupts, makes excuses, and changes the subject.
Earlier this week on “Hannity,” radio host Dana Loesch and Democratic strategist Mark Hannah debated the IRS persecution of conservatives and the news that in the past two years the agency spent $50 million on idiotic conferences and $92 million in bonuses.
A reasonable person, regardless of political philosophy, would agree that these revelations are despicable, even criminal. Well, at least they should.
Not so in today’s liberal-land. Break the law? Intimidate American citizens? Waste millions of taxpayer dollars to entertain and reward yourselves? No problem—if it’s all done to support the progressive cause.
Enter Mark Hannah. Rolling out the White House’s (Who are you going to believe—me or your lying eyes) “Groucho defense,” he threw mud balls hoping one—any—would stick:
- He blames Darrell Issa, Chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, for conducting what he calls “a sideshow; a spectacle.”
- He blames the Supreme Court’s Citizens United case for the poor babies at the IRS being “flooded” with 1,700 tax-exemption applications.
- He blames Bush (Yes. Again). Cuz, dammit, the IRS questioned the NAACP during his administration.
- And my personal favorite–he denies that the persecution of conservatives was politically motivated.
Dana Loesch waited, then pounced, summarily destroying his fallacious claims. “You spent two minutes trying to make a point. You failed.” Touche.
Hey, even amateur body language observers can clearly see whose telling the truth here. See for yourself:
