Though I saw it all around
Never thought I could be affected
Thought that we'd be the last to go
It is so strange the way things turn

Poll Dancing Redux

Intellectual dishonesty in the morning, smells just like skunk at night. So, have you seen how the Pew Poll on Distrust has been spun. Yes, the news organizations (well, mostly Fox) lump together those who completely distrust the government and those who only trust it sometimes to get the staggering figure of 70+% distrust the government. See what they did there, the took the people who only trust the government "sometimes" and lumped them in with those who never trust government to do something right. One of these things is not like the other.

It's intellectual dishonesty, but then it's also what I've come to expect.
