When a persons character comes into play with 'merit' how come these same principles are not applied to politicians?

Not sure how my name got in there Ninja, but that quote is from PW, not me.

Either I am reading too much into what you're retorting Ninja, or you're reading too much into what I'm saying. I absolutely do believe that all sides should have a say in their point of view and all points should be considered. All I am saying is that when you are forming your opinion, you should include the credibility of the source--be it good or bad.
Let's say you are doing a dissertation for a Ph.D in computer science. You speak with Bill Gates who tells you that Windows 12 will be a 3-D graphic on your desktop and there will be no more computer screens by the year 2023. Dave Mabus says Bullsh!t! The atheists won't let that happen! 3-D technology won't be available for another 50 years until all the atheists are exterminated!
Which opinion are your going to give more credit to in your thesis?

Thank you gentlemen, all info is very well put. I agree with all of it.
Arouet, I have no clue as to how I wound up with your name in that post other than my haste to get out of the house on time for a late afternoon bite to eat and drinks with the girls. I'll have to blame it on low blood sugar.
ProfWag, I KNEW you were psychic! I knew it, I knew it, I knew it!!!!
