Let me say it once again.  Is there anyone out there who by this time
was still able to believe the hoo hah purveyed yet again by the
shrub/Cheney crowd?  I mean really!!!

The old tale of the boy who cried wolf has a point: If you lie
repeatedly, people eventually catch on.

Then there's the old joke about the guy who declared he had a means to
detect when a certain politician was lying.  When asked how, he said
"Whenever his lips move."

The early reporting gave enough facts for anyone to draw a reasonable
conclusion.   Combine unverified "factoids" with the credibility of
the delivery boy, shake vigorously, rinse and repeat.
