    JOE CONASON: W. learned that the only thing that really matters is who wins. Whatever really happened doesn't matter. They create their own reality, as people in this Bush White House later said.

    TUCKER ESKEW: He was the first guy I ever heard who said that. It's now kind of rote in politics, but Lee was saying early, ``Perception is reality.'' Lee was ahead of the pack.

    When someone tells you a little lie, you won't remember it like you do a big lie.

    Repeated often enough, it becomes reality.

    The essence of Goebbel's propaganda.

    I listened to the AC interview; I understood what Cohen was saying (AC didn't) ; however, the chyron on the screen used the word "Nazis".  Which Cohen rightly pointed out he did not use.

    Perhaps he should have brought up Atwater's name.  That make Republicans apoplectic as well.  But it wouldn't have gotten the media's attention.

    Maybe Cohen felt he had to be outrageous.  Worked for "who?".
