Bush's big lies

From the Los Angeles Times:

"Paradoxically, the more outrageous the claim, the more apt we are to assume there must be some truth to it. Just as some banks and insurance companies are apparently 'too big to fail,' some claims from those with political power seem to strike us as 'too big to disbelieve.' 'That seems so outrageous it must be right,' we tell ourselves. 'The important people keep saying it -- they must know something I don't know.'"

Cynicism is power. Use it!
