IP,

I pondered whether or to include them. They upset me like they did you as the start with the same set of available facts and news sources and derive different results. I'm an engineer. My current definition of engineering is that it is training in a decision making discipline which uses logic backed up by mathematics. We are no more immune from GIGO than anyone else, so we pay attention to our sources. It is pretty obvious at which points these two went into the weeds, but I included them to show how precarious our national discussions are and how important it is to be cynical and draw our own conclusions.
