Who's the biggest liar?

Well it seems that when it comes to fact twisting and distorting the truth in the presidential debates, both Bush and Kerry are equally at fault. Factcheck.org is a great site for, well, checking the facts. Bush lied about his tax cuts and Kerry wasn't much better when it came to distorting the truth on Bush's education spending.

"Bush said most of his tax cuts went to "low- and middle-income Americans" when independent calculations show most went to the richest 10 percent. Kerry claims Bush "cut the Pell Grants" when they've actually increased. Both men repeated misstatements made in earlier debates, and added a few new ones."

You can get the rest here.
