Read this blog post from Roger Ebert. Wow.
In part, discussing the hateful manipulation of segments of the public by so-called ‘moral leaders’ Ebert refers to the billionaire who said closing tax loopholes was like invading Poland. Hyperbole and exaggeration are good indicators of a ‘con’.
Seriously, read it here.
One of the best lines:
Our political immune system has only one antibody,
and that is the truth.
