A five second glance at the news headlines suggest that many Americans, including most Democrats, exist in a cocoon of false ideas, myths that they have been told by the media and by their leaders that simply aren't true. Consider just these stories from today:
1. GM loses $49,000 on every Chevy Volt. Yet people believe the myth that Obama "saved" the auto industry and that "green" cars are the future.
2. Chicago teachers strike. Because a 16% raise over four years wasn't enough for them. Yet people believe the myth that public school teachers are in it "for the children."
3. Obama befuddled by iPhone. Yet people still believe he is the smartest President evah!
