Interesting read on how we now have fully fictionalized news when it comes to much about politics and no one seems to care

The extreme right wing conservatives have showned time and again their affinity for an Alternate Reality. Why would they believe in polls showing Romney is losing, when they can't even face the fact dinosaurs actually existed millions of years ago?? I mean, really, all they have to do is go visit a museum, and most of their alternative delusions would be enough to give them a mental breakdown.

Interesting article. GIves new meaning to the phrase, "Lies, D*mn Lies, and Statistics".

Noted. So, their point is that they can lie and get away with it? Conservonuts have been doing this a very long time--mostly playing to the emotion of fear in pandering to their fellow GOP-ers. Now, it's clear that if they don't like the facts, they just change them. I wonder how center-leaning Republicans who've hung onto their party despite Teabaggers, will take this message. Personally, I know a few people who recently "un-registered" with the GOP and signed on as Dems. because they finally realized how far astray their former party has gone.
