In the car yesterday, I heard an Obama campaign spot stating that John McCain has ‘stood in the way’ of stem cell research. The ad was set in such a way that it implied, of course, that McCain did not care if little girls were afflicted with diabetes. Cruel hearted man.
The fact is that the ad was a lie. And researching that led me to a very helpful resource: FactCheck.org. Think Consumer Reports analyzing the claims of political candidates, and you get the picture.
As to the stem cell question, this issue is at the top of this web site. Here you can hear the audio of the spot and then read what the candidate’s stated positions actually are.
In fairness, we should note that McCain-Palin takes it on the chin as well.
Amazing – a source for actual reality without spin. Very helpful. Useful for political cynics of whatever persuasion.
