    Biden: 'Republicans Have Changed the Law So You Get Arrested If You Do Vote'(edited)

    Talk radio hosts are often accused of exaggerating to make a point to their listeners. In my opinion sometimes these accusations are warranted.

    But shouldn't a sitting vice president be held to a higher standard?

    The following is just as bad as any exaggeration Rush Limbaugh has ever made concering the left.

"Republicans have changed the law so you get arrested if you do vote," he said, apparently joking. He cited efforts in Pennsylvania, Ohio and elsewhere "to essentially try to intimidate people, taking people off the roles."

    "This is not your father's Republican Party," he said.
    So the VP is lying right? Bold faced lying thinly disguised as a joke.

    It is a misrepresentation...mischaracterization...lie. Carefully planned and crafted.
    The devil whispered in my ear, "You cannot withstand the storm." I whispered back, "I am ​the storm."
