Do Facts Matter?

Thomas Sowell can't believe what he's seeing, or hearing. Neither can I, but since he expresses himself better:

Abraham Lincoln said, "You can fool all the people some of the time and some of the people all the time, but you can't fool all the people all the time."
Unfortunately, the future of this country, as well as the fate of the Western world, depends on how many people can be fooled on election day, just a few weeks from now.
Right now, the polls indicate that a whole lot of the people are being fooled a whole lot of the time.

It raises the question: Do facts matter? Or is Obama's rhetoric and the media's spin enough to make facts irrelevant....

The media alone are not alone in keeping the facts from the public. Republicans, for reasons unknown, don't seem to know what it is to counter-attack.

But the country does not deserve to be put in the hands of a glib and cocky know-it-all, who has accomplished absolutely nothing beyond the advancement of his own career with rhetoric, and who has for years allied himself with a succession of people who have openly expressed their hatred of America.

Glad Palin and McCain are finally raising the issue. Too little, too late? We'll know next month...

Now the results are in, and because of the mainstream media illuminati and their spin on things.
