  •  Granted, those numbers are scary. (10+ / 0-)

    Consider, too, that we recently lived through eight years of Cheney-Bush where an even larger share of the population bought into the lies.

    I live in Georgia, and get to hear that conservative nonsense all the time.  The evangelicals have always scared me, because so many of them are as you describe above.  If their church leaders tell them to vote "pro life", they are likely to vote for any scoundrel with an R behind his or her name.

    On the other hand, I'm encouraged by the election results, and am starting to look at that 47% number more as a ceiling than as a floor for GOP turnout.
