If you don’t believe me, check out the South Park episode S18E01 on youtube or other services.

I will honestly do nothing, I came up with a catchy title, and that’s all I need
Sorry, mate, but you didn’t. You copied Comedy Central.
This is what I would cal weasel-talk….
The non-denial denial is an art that takes many forms in official Washington.
The basic idea is that when you or your organization are accused of doing something that you did in fact do, you respond with what sounds like a denial, but really isn’t.
You issue a very narrowly-crafted denial involving a lot of hairsplitting, while avoiding the central claim. Or you dismiss the accusation as unworthy of response. Or you deny something else: You raise a straw man accusation and deny that; or – possibly best yet — you take advantage of a poorly worded question.
The press typically interprets it as a denial, and since you are a credible figure, it moves on.
And if the accusation against you is ever irrefutably proven, then you point out that you never really denied it. Since you didn’t technically lie, the press, again, moves on.

The first thing that strikes me is how on earth is people going to be able to pay their loans if they can’t use their car to get to work?
The thermometer showed a 103.5-degree fever, and her 10-year-old’s asthma was flaring up. Mary Bolender, who lives in Las Vegas, needed to get her daughter to an emergency room, but her 2005 Chrysler van would not start.
The cause was not a mechanical problem — it was her lender.
Ms. Bolender was three days behind on her monthly car payment. Her lender, C.A.G. Acceptance of Mesa, Ariz., remotely activated a device in her car’s dashboard that prevented her car from starting. Before she could get back on the road, she had to pay more than $389, money she did not have that morning in March.
“I felt absolutely helpless,” said Ms. Bolender, a single mother who stopped working to care for her daughter. It was not the only time this happened: Her car was shut down that March, once in April and again in June.

This one isn’t really ignorant or unreasonable, but it is still very funny if you’re a geek, so I’m going to post it here anyways:
