    Or maybe not.  The modern active conservative sees everything not-conservative as a vast conspiracy against them.  It's not too hard to see why, considering they (generally) doubt evolution, doubt climate science, and scientists are against them on those issues (by a huge margin).  There's only two options for such a result.  Vast liberal conspiracy, or being wrong.

    "Reagan-Reagan-Reagan.  We're not wrong."

    The desire for those fields of science to be a conspiracy seems to have poisoned the intellectual honesty of the conservative base.  It's probably why they jump on everything associated with anything they don't like as a conspiracy, orchestrated by Obama (the most visible opponent).

    Once one conspiracy theory becomes acceptable, it makes a lot of other conspiracy theories acceptable.  Even normal.
