I'm really not surprised about any of this...

The right is very commonly known for it's religious zealotry, especially in relation to Christianity. The first pages of their holy text basically points out we're all damned for eternity because we dared to garner knowledge. That's the joke.

Repubs & Conserves have made a platform out of talking about how teachers are overpaid (I still can't believe that) and how colleges are liberal institutions polluting our children's minds. Mike Huckabee, a revered mouthpiece of the right, has made a significant business market targeting home-schooled children who are trying to avoid the filth of education outside of the home.

Why is it shocking that (A) they abhor facts and (B) they are commended for doing so?

Ignorance is often times bliss. I'm fairly certain I'd be happier if I just drank moonshine, prayed to the Jesus and didn't question anything. In some way I envy them.

missiv: Forgive him, see, his wife had a miscarriage in 1989. Somehow, they felt this was also relevant to his qualifications for President. Facts have no place in politics.

You mean he raped her, and her body found a way of "shutting it down"?

Why not, the Obama champaign sure doesn't.

All this was inspired by the principle--which is quite true within itself--that in the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility; because the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than consciously or voluntarily; and thus in the primitive simplicity of their minds they more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small lie, since they themselves often tell small lies in little matters but would be ashamed to resort to large-scale falsehoods. It would never come into their heads to fabricate colossal untruths, and they would not believe that others could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously. Even though the facts which prove this to be so may be brought clearly to their minds, they will still doubt and waver and will continue to think that there may be some other explanation. For the grossly impudent lie always leaves traces behind it, even after it has been nailed down, a fact which is known to all expert liars in this world and to all who conspire together in the art of lying.

Via Infinito: Can't let those pesky facts get in the way of our campaign.

Reality has a well-known liberal bias. Romney has no time for that, not if he's going to fool whitey into voting for him.

Marcus Aurelius: We gutted welfare back in the 90's. There's not much left to get upset about. Maybe the GOP would be happier if we just brought back indentured servitude.

Likes where this is going.
