i may have been doing mathematical logic for too long, but i read those as the same thing. and i think you know that yourself
they have performed a long, in-depth analysis to prove that he doesn't know the context
of a single verse
of the bible.maybe he shouldn't have said it then. but it's immeasurably
fickle. it picks him out for not knowing the real value of a "trillion". the value he quotes is the european value of a trillion. which is strange, because he goes on to explain it in terms of the american number system. but the point is he clarifies it - does that not show he knows its ambiguity?
the pregnant woman article: the question he is asked is ambiguous. he isn't told whether that means she should still be killed while pregnant, or after she's given birth.
the $29 question's final finding of his clarification as "wrong" is a matter with the definition of "average". i'm not even going into that particular problem with political posturing.
i'm gonna ignore the "collecting cans" one, as i laughed too hard at the inclusion of a poodle to give it a proper look-over.
the james lee witt angle, although valid, has been looked into far too deeply.
"discussions": they're complaining about what? they took a false implication. whose fault is that?
i can't read any more of this shit, but be content that i tried this time, just for you
note: i don't support the democratic party. i believe both the republicans and democrats stand for basically the same thing (to the degree that a foreign citizen can reasonably be expected to know about them), and i don't support either of them. i think al gore is - basically - a twat, but not for the reasons that site lists. it's political silliness at least as bad as the examples of "wrongdoing" it cites, and really shouldn't be linked to by an intelligent person such as yourself. plus none of them are examples of him being an idiot. 95% of the ones where his mistakes are actually mistakes, it's generally minor facts that he can't be expected to know - he will have been told them by his staff, and told to act as if he knows them himself. politicians lie
- it's what they do
, more characteristically than anything else.
as for the point that brought us onto this: look what snopes say!
