Wacky Idea

I'm reading the analysis of the latest polls (the ones that show Bush ahead; the ones that show Kerry ahead aren't being talked about as much) and there's a lot of discussion of the effect Bush's ads had. This leads me to a fundamental question: why the hell does anybody trust anything a political ad says? They're always full of lies and distortions. Not just Bush's, although his have been particularly dishonest. They're never trustworthy. And yet, people watch them and start complaining that Kerry's going to raise the gas tax.

If it comes from the opposing campaign, we all need to just assume it's a lie until it's proven true. That goes for the media too.
