4. I sincerely believe
that he's a moron.

Who knows what he believes? He's not in touch with reality from what I've seen.

5. Sincere, but sincerely wrong - very common phrase
Edited on Sun Jul-25-04 05:40 PM by JPJones
For example:
Speaking after receiving the insignia of a Knight of the Legion of Honour from French President Jacques Chirac, Bono said: "In my opinion Tony Blair is a great politician. His convictions about Iraq are sincere, but for me he is sincerely wrong."

Sincerely yours (not really),
