I don't know about you, but the amount of information presented during the presidential and vice presidential debates this year sometimes left my head spinning.
While I found it easy, as each debate concluded, to determine which candidate had presented himself most admirably, knowing how to interpret the purported "facts" presented was a challenge with which I needed some help.
The candidates spent weeks preparing for these debates, carefully crafting ways of presenting their viewpoints that would read well to their target audiences.
