Conservative Publication Claims Obama Supporters Don’t Pay Taxes

Most absurd thing I’ve read so far today:

“The Obama coalition is made up of rich liberals who don’t pay taxes and the poor who also don’t pay taxes.”– Tony Lee, in email from Human Events

As is so often the case in reading such nonsense from right wing sources, I can’t decide if they are so out of touch with reality that they believe this, or if they are knowingly making this up.

Update: Best response so far on Facebook: “I paid a helluva lot more than GE”

Update II: Ross Douthat is also confused about taxes.  Steve Benen and Scott Lemieux set him straight.

    I read their stuff too and I’m pretty sure the minions do believe the memes. Harder to tell if their talking heads believe or have just figured out a means to an end.
