The Lies Mitch McConnell Tells

The quality of a lie is a direct reflection of the respect the liar has for the person being lied to. That will seem counterintuitive, but consider: You put effort into a lie, work to make it plausible, credible, believable, when you have regard for the recipient, when his good opinion matters or his discovery of the truth would be disastrous. That being the case, what does it suggest when you put as little effort into a lie as McConnell has?
