I have to say, the spin in the GD and GD - Politics is almost insufferable.

However, the video forum is a breath of fresh air. Well, actually, the clips from CNN give me a headach (if I wanted a daiily dose of lies, I'd watch CNN on TV). However, seeing clips of the candidates make their arguments directly is a fantastic thing, and so much more informative than the spin people post in GD. I'm not surprised that the comments in the video forum are like night vs day when you compare them to the GD comments on the exact same subjects.

So, for all of you who are finding the spin depressing, check out the video forum where it's harder to convince people not to believe their lying eyes and ears.
