    You really need to stop with the American Thinker crap....I now want you to show me the last thread I used AT in....right now.

    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    Are you denying you've used them?

    Not at all. But for all of the incessant whining you do about them, I can tell you that it has been well over 2 years since I have used them, because it is an opinion site, not a hard news site. You don't like them because you disagree with their opinion, but that is neither here nor there. Your continual bringing them up as though I use them frequently is a lie, and one that you knowingly commit.

    Now, I would appreciate it if you would stick to the subject instead of trying to discredit me using failed Allensky tactics that are tiresome.

    Well, there is no empirical study of politifact's bias, but this man from U of Minn is about as close as one can get. I see though that you don't dispute the premise, only try to poke holes....Common defense tactic.

    Actually I do, and that is why I asked the question. The study would only be valid if we could expect exactly equal numbers at all times. It is quite possible that any break down of sides woudl have one side lying more often than another. And frankly with folks like Palin and Beck out there, this is not surprising at all.

    I don't think I've been on this site 2 years and I could swear I've seen it here.

    But the fact is you use such sources. Heck, today you used Hannity who routinely uses quotes out of context and misrepsents what people say. It would be like me using Oberman.
