    In the same way the population of Salem Massachusetts was stupid in 1692 when they came to the conclusion they were menaced by witches: That is ignorant, bigoted, superstitious, put-upon, lied to, manipulated, and subject to the sort of mass hysteria the current crop of republicans seems to have embraced. It is not at all clear to me how this 'tea-party' inflected claptrap differs measurably from that long ago but still relevant episode in our history.

    An empty head is not really empty; it is stuffed with rubbish. Hence the difficulty of forcing anything into an empty head. -- Eric Hoffer
