  •  The GOPers also reject science... (12+ / 0-)

    ...and last I checked, most technology depends on science to operate.

    •  Not the Corporate Sponsors (0+ / 0-)

      Republican voters are anti-intellectual. But their corporate sponsors are not. Oil, tobacco, aerospace, pharma corps are all science and engineering hothouses. Big banks employ probably more physics and math PhDs than any other industry, including scientific research.

      And that is one reason they're winning. Part of their science is studying mass psychology, and how to manipulate it. Teaching the masses to want to be dumber is brilliant for the status quo.

      For a while, anyway. Until the good brains run dry...
