Jay Carney’s ‘mendacity’ elicits an ‘OMG’ from Brit Hume

Brit Hume has been known to toss down the ol’ “OMG” — when mocking the “largest conference ever devoted to female orgasm,” for example — but this time, it’s Jay Carney who has Hume OMGing.

Well, Carney’s lips were moving so

“What we see happening with this Republican strategy is a willingness to threaten the very foundation of the world’s greatest economic power, the economy that basically stabilizes the entire world economic system, and that is a very risky proposition,” Carney said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”

Carney said the fear is that the government shutdown is “the trailer to a movie” of the strategy Republicans are going to apply to the upcoming debt ceiling, which the U.S. will reach on Oct. 17.

Others on Twitter were similarly taken with Carney’s mendacity:

First it was just the American economy.  Now it’s the world economy.  What’s next, the intergalactic monetary trade system?
