Prostate Cancer Survival Rates and Liars (Giuliani)

In his new tv political ad being aired in New Hampshire Rudy sez:

"My chance of surviving prostate cancer -- and thank God I was cured of it -- in the United States: 82 percent." "My chances of surviving prostate cancer in England: Only 44 percent, under socialized medicine."

Naturally the 44 percent number came from Rudy-land. Anyone familiar with Google can find the actual statistic.

The relative five-year survival rate for men diagnosed in England in 2000–01 was 71%, compared with only 31% for men diagnosed in 1971–75. And, that rate is rising in the UK just as it is in the USA because more men are being examined and diagnosed earlier. England does this spending far, far less money than does the USA.

I think the most interesting question of this race is who is more delusional: Bush or Rudy?

I think it's becoming more and more clear that Rudy is a complete nutjob and pretty much always has been. If elected, he could make us wish G.W. was still President.
