If you don't beleive in stats, why do you bandy them about like evidence of something?
"I'd have to say that the Repubs control about 80% of all media right now... No, the Repub's can't see it that way because they only focus on the 20% that does not put a halo over Bush's head"
"Sure, we may have the best to offer but guess what? 90% of out people either can't afford it or their insurance companies won't pay for it."
"this United States, which boasts all this wealth, hides the "fact" that it also has the highest per capita poverty rate of any western, industrialized developed country"
I notice you are very careful to say Western to avoid including the UK which has 17% VS 12%.
It wasn't until the public opinion polls reached 60% saying the Iraq war was not worth fighting that Russert, the ever political journalist, stepped back from Bush.
