    It also dicked the release of Corso's book on the subject. Best "Ha Haa!" Of the year!

    Acclimated?

    It's been like this since the beginning - it's actually getting better, not worse, over the decades.

    That's the inanity of the political circus arena.

    At least our political parties aren't printing all of our news stories - just some of them.

    I'm not sure about that. I don't have much faith in our press.

    There's nothing wrong with systematically addressing personal and professional criticisms of one's person in a public forum.

    Our society doesn't value presidential behaviors, and no one believes that any of our politicians are above this.

    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    It sounds like a decent idea for the democrats if it can counter or disarm the swiftboating and all the other absurd quasi-slanderous things people get into. They got some hardcore trolls on the right, what can I say?

    Google Video News Release. I'm sure you're gonna see a LOT of them in the next year or so.

    What will be funny is when the real fact checking websites begin to fact check this propoganda "fact check" site. The motives of this site is clear; to defend Obama, not to state the "facts"
