Interesting that an award-winning blog post is simply a collation of sources, hyperlinked and referenced, clearly demonstrating massively incompetent leadership in the American government. Simple, easy to read, with an amazing degree of political punch.
With the increasing transparency of society comes the ability for those willing to spend the time and effort to hold the other side to their word. Instant publishing of collatable, provable, checkable data is the political tool of the 21st century. This is a good thing. Truth may just become a democratic institution in the end. What it takes, however, is time and effort, and this is something people are becoming increasingly less willing to spend. Hooray for factcheckers!
Actually, I might just write a master's degree about this.
