    From an email sent to supporters:

    “Today, the Minnesota Canvassing Board met and accepted the results of the legally required Canvass. And, for the 3rd time, it shows that Norm Coleman was re-elected to the United States Senate.

    The first time was election night.

    The second time was after the legally required canvass.

    And, finally, with today’s action by the Canvass Board confirming his win yet again.”

    Wow, three lies!

    Who was it said that if you repeat a lie often enough people will believe it?

    (this is a test — I know the answer)

    Hitler’s propaganda minister said it, but a few years ago George Bush also discussed propaganda, saying that one had to throw “the truth” out there over and over until it was accepted. (I don’t recall his exact words.)
