131. Yes, "facts"
There's a list of Lieberman's ratings from various organizations. That Lieberman received those ratings, and recieved the ratings because of the votes he had taken, is a fact.

If you wanted to refute those facts, you can't. They are facts. However, you could go to the orgs listed, find out which votes they considered in their ratings, and then argue that the ratings are misleading because the votes they considered did not fully convey the candidates position, but then you'd be refuting SD's conclusion/opinion (that Joe has a pretty liberal voting record), and not the FACT that Joe did receive those ratings, and that Joe did vote the way these orgs report.
