With all due respect, to say ‘It’s a lot less wrong that you think it is’ is a lot like saying, ‘She’s a lot less pregnant than you think she is.’ Wrong is wrong, and the ad is distorted. But to John’s point, both sides are making up lies, both sides are distorting …. Both sides are demeaning the process, both sides are making the public mad as hell about the process — including the media institution …. That’s why we all have to take a good look at how we’re conducting ourselves.
