    It is that simple. The remaining people who identify with what passes for modern American conservatism have held on to a set of beliefs which have been increasingly proven wrong by facts and subsequent history.

    This means that facts are their enemy, and the onlyrealities hope their brittle ideas and worldviews have is:

    1. cherrypicking rationales to dismiss fact-based theories that prove their beliefs wrong

    2. Projecting irrational behavior onto those who dare spew the enemy facts

    Its sad, but it is in my opinion the death throes of this ideology. Kept artificially alive perhaps by some wealthy people who benefit from having shock troops for voting, but still on its way out nonetheless.

      of the current incarnation of the GOP.  But I fear it will get worse before it gets better.

      That's why I want the Dems to be positive and hopeful this election cycle.   I have friends and family in Florida, conservative GOP, and even they are turned off by the anger and hate.  They don't have a good grasp of reality and truth regarding Obama, but at least the hate ads are turning them off.
