DUMB OR MENDACIOUS? OR BOTH?….Democrats are taking unsurprising glee in rubbing GOP noses in the fact that the new campaign slogan chosen by House Republicans — “Change You Deserve” — turns out to also be the trademarked slogan of the antidepressant Effexor. That’s prepackaged comedy gold for the late-night comic crowd. But I’m genuinely curious: how did this happen? Didn’t Boehner & Co. even bother to Google the phrase to see if anyone else was using it? It shows up in a 10-second search, after all.

I dunno. Maybe they really are that dumb. And judging by this, they’re just flat-out liars too. Nice week you’re having so far, guys.
