that was a pretty damning ad, actually. now, let's hope the airwaves haven't all been bought up by karl rove, joe ricketts and the kochs.

And that was based on just ONE of Romney's blatant lies of the night.

I can't wait until the other books in the series come out. I hear Voldemort kills Richie Rich in the end.

Someone here proposed this idea once and I think it's genius. One network should get two dozen people, armed with Google, and fact check the debates posting the results in real time, Pop Up Video style.

Considering most people's reading comprehension and ability to source their "facts", I'm not sure how well that would turn out.

Well barring Obama turning to Mitt and saying "Mitt, that's a load of horseshait and you know it." it's the best I can hope for.

Personally I'd respect any politician who'd actually say that on live tv and be correct.

Not average people, we're talking Daily Show-level researchers. Better yet, air the debate on like a 1 or 2-minute delay to tighten the time between when something is said and when the pop-up fact appears. It's going to be hit and miss, but still could be interesting.

Of course, if one candidate is overwhelmingly incorrect in their statements, the network will simply be accused of having an agenda, not "it turns out my candidate is a monumental liar."
