Speaking Self-Promotion to Truth

I see this bumper sticker all the time: Speak Truth to Power. It's the mantra of a certain mindset. It's on t-shirts and has been marketed as a slogan on a bunch of crap. It's all over the web as a tagline for human rights groups, for groups exposing the Catholic priest sexual abuse scandal, and of course for one of ANSWERs anti-war/pro-dictator rallies. It is implied in the title of Joe Wilson's book, The Politics of Truth and the title of his website (possibly funded by the Kerry campaign) http://restorehonesty.com/
 
Let's take a vote on what should be the real title of Wilson's book and website. The Politics of Self-Promotion? Speaking Untruth to Power? NoHonesty.com? Shouting Lies to Truth? 'Mis-Speaking' to Power?
 
I'm waiting for the bumper stickers.
