It'd be funny if it wasn't so sad. I may have to break out the Colbet avatar honoring truthiness.

Good work Frank. Unfotunately, the people who need to read it, probably never will. The NY Times has been successfully labeled as a partisan, elitist outlet. The mentioned article about Palin's secrecy and the influence of "The First Dude" was also excellent work. But it was preaching to the choir.

McCain and the Republicans are trying to create a false reality because its the only way they can win. Perception is reality, so if they just keep saying the same things over and over again, the can create the percerption they want to among the less interested and informed voters. I guess we'll see if playing the fear card will win out this time.

It's like Tommy Smothers said last night on the Emmys - Truth is what you get other people to believe.

It will be a sad sad day in this country if the McPalins succeed in getting the American public to buy their truths.
I'll probably be moving to Italy, but don't worry!  I'll still be posting on this board and following the Steelers!!!
