We're so tired of being right all the time.

Our editor-in-chief wrote back in December in response to the "Russia ate my homework/hacked our election" hysteria:

A congenital liar might successfully sell one whopper after another for a while, but what inevitably happens is that this only makes the liar careless.  He begins to lose a sense of perspective, partially believing his own feverish imagination, and then, when he’s in a tough spot, he’ll tell such a wild one that even those who were taken in previously, will see through it, and begin to question everything the liar has been saying going way back.

And this is precisely what is occurring around the world, but with a particular vengeance in the US.

[...]

Unable to provide any evidence for their extraordinary accusation, the old establishment is looking particularly foolish, leading many Americans to question a lot of what they have been told by the same people over the years.

The liars have marched into a complete debacle, like Napoleon at Waterloo, soldiering on to their ultimate destruction.  And Russia is thanking her lucky stars.

This is just as true in Germany. Like an obedient U.S. lapdog, Germany hurled all sorts of insane accusations at the Kremlin, accusing Putin of attempting to meddle in German elections.

It was all bullshit. Surprise!
