    to the question "how low can GW's approvals go?" Tyrone, without pausing says "27%". John says "How do you know that?" Tyrone says "Barack Obama faces Allen Keyes in a Senate race in 2004. Keyes is from out of state so he has no local base. Both candidates are black so there's no racial advantage. And Keyes is so bug fuck nuts that he thinks abortion is the equivalent of the Holocaust. He pulls 27% of the vote. So, there is a reliable Republican constituency out there that is so bug fuck nuts, they'll never give up."

    I think those are the authoritarian followers. I know some of them. A firm metaphysical foundation doesn't have to be rational. I'm a Liberal Democrat from a labor background so I think mine is mostly rational but some of it is class consciousness. The R's, I don't know.
