It's amazing how late-night comedy has become a serious political force. I propose a good routine for these guys, they can steal it from me.
"The problem with accusing people of lying is that there no scale. Social white lies are equated with huge horrible frauds. I propose an earthquake magnitude scale for lies.
Magnitude 1 - In the car, "The dog did it."
Magnitude 2 - I don't know how that email got erased.
M3 - lies of innocence - "I never had sex with that woman."
and so on.
M8 - Russians: "We never had anything to do with the election."
M9 - "I never had anything to do with the Russians."
