I love the way the mainstream media often refers to Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour as "colorful" which, I suppose, means "quotable." But, sometimes, Barbour usues color and quotes to stoke resentment. His comment to the washington Post that people are driving up to pharmacy windows in BMWs saying they cannot afford their co-pay is a perfect example. The Washington Post did a little useful fact-checking to demonstrate that in this case, "colorful" meant "lying."
