Or Lie-Ish

Dave Weigel on the twitterz:

Scott Walker telling #NRIsummit that liberals define success as how many people are on unemployment benefits. A bit strawman-ish

I actually think some conservatives truly believe this kind of thing, that liberals are just anti-conservative. They don't like people getting benefits, so we must love more people getting benefits. They don't like regulations they don't like, so they think we love all regulations. They claim to support small government, so we must like ever-expanding government. Etc.
