Is Jack Kelly's perception, reality?

While I normally just do a heading and an except for OpEd pieces, I wanted to do more on the one by Jack Kelly this weekend.

Kelly's piece, which warns that Republicans are losing the PR battle, hinges on three main points. The first point begins like this, “Polls indicate a majority of ...” Need I go further? Polls tell us only what the polling company and/or the entity that hired the polling company want us to believe.

The second point contends that the Bolton nomination is failing. Also a misconception based on media distortions. Bolton's nomination is typical of the way Democrats whine and howl over someone they know they can't manipulate and pressure into compromising with them, and the media report the whining and howling and ignore the facts. People have caught on, and aren't paying as much attention anymore.

Kelly's third point? Let's just look at the first few words, “In a poll taken by...” ’Nuff said.

With the MSM perpetually on the side of Liberals, people have become more and more desensitized to the bias, in as much as they expect it, and interpret is accordingly. Meanwhile some networks have either escaped the Liberal Plantation, or are crawling through the fence, and out there to greet them are thousands upon thousands of bloggers. So what is the consensus of the average joes? We could believe polls, but then that wouldn't be smart. We could believe what the MSM tells, but that would be even less reliable. Maybe we could believe reality and look at who's in office right now. Did it look like the MSM and the polls got that one?

Doesn't to me either.
