The day after Paul Ryan's acceptance speech for being nominated the Republican candidate for vice president, the "fact checkers" were all over the news debunking inaccuracies in his speech. Thank heavens for the Annenberg Policy Center's FactCheck.org, the Tampa Bay Times' Pulitzer Prize-winning PolitiFact.com and The Washington Post's "The Fact Checker." God bless them, every one.
It's good that the candidates were held to the standard of accuracy and had to spend the next day explaining why they outright lied or unfairly misrepresented things. Politicians shouldn't get away with just saying whatever they want.
I'm sure they'll do the same for the Democrats next week.
