"The perception of reality with which I've been working for 40 years has a flaw. I was shocked."

Does anyone else see something very weird in a bunch of blue collar workers (at McCain's urging) booing Obama's plans to "share the wealth"? Do they have that much trouble with maths?

McCain also claims that "Obama doesn't want to invest in policies that'll grow the pie". Having read "The Audacity of Hope", that's pretty much Obama's top priority.

It's pretty well known now that pretty much any fact can be checked. So why the hell don't people do so? It seems bizarre to me, given that McCain's campaign and running mate and the recent results of the policies of his party all seem to be turning into complete train wrecks, that the swing is so slight. So many people seem determined to vote "loyally" in the way they or their families have always voted.
