There is one born every minute. I just read a short poll that says 43% of Americans believe that "Bigfoot" type creatures exist. That is a lot of people who believe a myth and about three times as many as I would have assumed. These kinds of numbers really are scary. Bigfoot, if it existed, would certainly have been discovered and studied by now. Just about every square inch of earth, other than the oceans, have been looked at and studied and yet many people still believe in stuff like this.

That is why you can really get many folks to believe anything I guess. The "Swift Boat" jerks pulled it off in the last election against John Kerry and they are now trying the same thing against Barrack Obama. These folks are made up of ultra right wing crazies who hire two bit authors to write lies. But, many people will believe it and so it is one of those things in life that we just have to deal with.

They only way to fight this is with facts and truths and I am hopeful that Obama's campaign will expose this crap. No, I haven't read the book, "Obamanation" and I wont because if the Swift Boat crowd is behind it you can bet it is nothing but falsehoods.

Oh, but if it is in print, especially a book, then it must be true. Right, Jim? ;)

Ah, these critters are the master of The Big Lie.
