One last fact check

If you'd like one last Fact Check, >this AP link is a pretty good summary of the campaigns so far. My favorite part is paragraph 3.

"Altogether, facts took a beating in the campaign. McCain and Obama produced enduring myths that their running mates and supporters amplified and distorted even more. When a non-licensed plumber who owes back taxes and would get a tax cut under Obama is held out by McCain as a stand-in for average working people who should vote Republican, you know truth-telling took a back seat to myth-making."

But it does look at both candidates and their misleads and flat-out lies. And of course, there's always FactCheck.org. However, you vote, please vote on the reality of each candidate. Neither candidate will destroy civilization. Which isn't to say that one might not make a better Prez than the other.
