Damn those inconveniently factual facts!

Great bit from The Shrillblog:

As John Stewart of The Daily Show noted, the facts themselves seem to have a severe partisan slant. Look for the facts to join The Order in a special induction ceremony as the election draws nigh.

Reminds me of Bertolt Brecht's crack about the 1953 worker riots in East Berlin, which were rather savagely repressed by the East German ("worker's") government: "The government, having lost the confidence of the people, has decided to dissolve them and elect a new people."
