Lying Idiot

John Aravosis catches Reuters beginning a news article with "Al Gore, long mocked as an exaggerating bore, seems certain to land a lead role at the Democratic National Convention..." and asks:
Excuse me? Yes, Gore was mocked by Republicans in 2000, who falsely tried to paint him as a liar and a bore. But I didn't realize that Republican slurs against Democratic candidates were now the new required epithet to use any time we refer to those nominees in the future. Does Reuters plan on referring to George Bush as "George Bush, long mocked as a lying idiot" or Ronald Reagan as "long mocked as a bumbling dolt"?
