elongate politburo messianic strife

Fair and balanced 'R Us

(The following is a secret transcript smuggled out from the bowels of a Liberal Media Establishment at great peril.)

kadyg: Speaking of voting. Any thoughts to a poll question [for our website]?
baxil: "Is George W. Bush the Antichrist?"
kadyg: Kind of biased, dontcha think?
baxil: The Truth (tm) always looks biased.
kadyg: Oh, is that how you can find it in the middle of all the other stuff?
baxil: Yes.
baxil: He's the Antichrist. He's a moronic chimpanzee. He's the most dangerous man alive. He's an incompetent buffoon. These all look biased and therefore must all be simultaneously true.
baxil: Whereas "Arnold Schwarzenegger is a movie star" doesn't look biased at all. Therefore it must not be true. And if we look at the reality, right now Schwarzenegger is the governor of California. So see? The "bias test" wins again!
kadyg: Wow! That's amazing. Why don't more people know about this?
baxil: They're biased.
