    I think by this stage we'll just assume that every Maths related issue has been "accidently" switched around on Fox news.

    EDIT: Not good news for Dems either. Since Obama and Dems getting 20+20+2 of the blame overall
    The've been far too weak and should rightly bare the majority of the blame

    Not really sure what the point of this is. Most of us know that Fox News couldn't be trusted to report on grass growing without putting changing the facts to put a conservative spin on it. It's honestly not even funny.

    Of course, there's a segment of CFC that hasn't come around to this view, but they see no logical contradiction between calling this an isolated, unrepresentative incident and criticizing you for spamming up the forum with baker's dozens of these isolated incidents.

    Is that why they are moving Beck into the fact finding department?

    Still waiting for Fox to "accidentally" post a poll in the Dems favor.

    Well shouldn't Dems and Obama be added together. Seems like thinkprogress is playing with the numbers. The truth is that In reality, the poll also shows that a plurality of Americans think Obama and the Democrats would bear responsibility for a shutdown:

    Overlap? People who think one are highly likely to think the other.

    The sad thing is that it took me 30 sec to prove I have better math skills then Fox.

    Source will be somehow biased. Evidence that the source is independent and well-reputed will be brushed away with straw man. CNN will be labeled as "lol, no better" and the game will be forfeit by all parties.

    What is the most resilient parasite? Bacteria? A virus? An intestinal worm?

    ...an idea. Resilient; highly contagious. Once an idea has taken hold of the brain it's almost impossible to eradicate. An idea that is fully formed - fully understood - that sticks, right in there somewhere.

    Why not just say 42% v 37% then ?
    No need to pull out a 56% figure just to make yourself look good.

    Well Republicans only taken a mear 9 years to forget 9-11. And that was with 9-11 being mentioned a few million times a second.

    Hell Republicans dont even remember George W Bush never mind 9-11.
