I found this an interesting and entertaining read, while at the same time finding myself flabbergasted that statistical data can be abused in such a blatant manner. Usually they at least try to hide the finagling. I've seen some pretty dastardly narrative frames set up in research presenations, but this has me totally floored.

Wow. I guess the average American is a moron without the vaguest capacity for critical thought, and with a great capacity for doublethink.
