Who Do You Believe?

A couple of Facebook polls which should be taken with the proverbial grain of salt, but which are food for thought nonetheless. I know where my vote would have been. It has been many years since it became my policy to believe precisely nothing which my government or the domestic media tells me.

John Harwood: Who do you believe America?
84,115 votes
83% Wikileaks
17% US Intel officials

Lou Dobbs: Who do you believe regarding Russian hacking?
17,899 votes
6% President Obama
94% Julian Assange

Did Russia hack the election? Sure, and Jessica Lynch was rescued in the midst of a raging gun battle after she herself had been gravely injured and at the point of death, bravely fighting off with her trusty M-14 the ravening hordes of Iraqis who were attacking her. And we have been fighting in Afghanistan for fifteen years to “deny them space in which to plan their attacks.” And, as the King of Siam says, “Etcetera, etcetera, etcetera.”
