Lies, Damned Lies, and Obama Ads

John Hinderaker writes about an Obama ad that features Democrat women pretending to be Republican women who have changed their minds about Republicans. Why?

Maybe it's to distract from the real whopper of a lie: Obama's latest Medicare ad. Yuval Levin analyzes it at the link:

"On Saturday, the Obama campaign released this ad attacking the Romney Medicare proposal. The ad doesn’t walk some sort of narrow line between misleading and deceiving, it’s just simply a pack of lies from top to bottom."

Could it be that the Obama team is trying to overload the debunkers? Or is the sad truth that most voters don't have time to separate the truth from the lies? Put enough lies out there and some of them will be believed.
