Mr Paine, hypnotist, social philosopher and activist, uses cutting edge investigations – and a sharp pin – to pop the fantasy bubble/babble that fooled a nation into believing that the candidate who came in second, won the race.

There is a new administration, but the crimes under Bush go unpunished. Isn't it about time?< Less
