That being said, this guy won state for a reason. He was brilliant.

MTA's TRAIN OF THOUGHT: "FACTS ARE STUBBORN THINGS"
This is an error of the intellect as inevitable as that error of the eye which lets us fancy that on the horizon heaven and earth meet. This explains many things, and among them the fact that everyone measures us with his own standard--generally about as long as a tailor's tape, and we have to put up with it: as also that no one will allow us to be taller than himself--a supposition which is once for all taken for granted.
“To doubt everything or to believe everything are two equally convenient solutions;both dispense with the need for thought.”Henri Poincare(29 April 1854 – 17 July 1912)“Science and Hypothesis”
"Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes,our inclinations, the dictates of our passions, they cannot alterthe state of facts and evidence."John Adams, Second President(1735 - 1826)
"Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored."Aldous Huxley(26 July 1894 – 22 November 1963)
"Get the facts, or the facts will get you. And when you get them,get them right, or they will get you wrong."Thomas Fuller(1608 – 16 August 1661)
