Robert Novak lies, and the RNC loves it so much that they post it on their site.

And, if I worked for the Cornell Daily Sun I'd be a bit annoyed that Robert Novak was lying about what was in my newspaper.

via GOP CNN'S ROBERT NOVAK: "[T]hey've got to really get Howard under control. He spoke at Cornell University last week, and the only paper that covered this was "The Cornell Daily" student paper, and he said, yes, Social Security has a big problem. Over the years it's going to lose about 80 percent of the benefits. That, Judy, is not the Democratic line. The Democratic line is there is no problem."

Here is what the Cornel Daily Sun says: Dean pointed out that, while he would not endorse this, if Social Security were left alone for 30 years, its benefits would be reduced to 80 percent of what it is now. He acknowledged that while there were indeed problems with the program, turning to Wall Street was not the answer.

I didn't have a chance to look at this story before, but Novak needs to be fired for this.
