Check the facts

Call me an idealist, but I prefer to base my vote on the truth. While distortions, understatements, exaggerations, and downright lies may be part of "good politics," they decrease my desire to vote for a particular candidate. I don't care how well they can lie or put down their opponent; I care about how well they fulfill their role in the federal government. At this rate, both Bush and Kerry stink. FactCheck.org has the latest distortions from the second presidential debate.
