It’s become a staple of The Daily Show lately. A Democratic Congressman works down the list of talking points by Republicans on the Health Care bill and compares it to the “Big Lie” of Joseph Göbbels and the Nazis. Jon Stewart pokes at the hyperbole, saying, “You don’t have to go there. There’s already a perfectly good word for liars … liars”. But this is far from the only example of excessive use of superlatives.
It’s become a total epidemic that threatens to end life as we know it!
