200 Years of Tea Party Paranoia
"It's easier to fool people," Mark Twain apparently never said, "than to convince them that they have been fooled." You can find those words all over the Internet attributed to Twain, but I can locate no credible source.
Too bad, because it's absolutely correct.
Twain probably did say something similar, because it sounds like an opinion the acerbic author of "Huckleberry Finn" would have endorsed.
