    Cult like is right, because they are leaning towards almost supernatural explainations about how the Democrats are still somehow running the country presumably by using black magic and drinking baby's blood.

    It would be oversimplifying to say that the answer was that GOP voters were simply wrong. But really, the agenda wasn't all bad, it was because the people that they elected sold them out.

    And at least one guy made the comment that Frist is just kiting one more silly distraction. So maybe it is getting through that they were screwed.

      Knuckle-dragging nativists and molting hawks and conservatives of every description have always had to find scapegoat groups to blame for the world's ills.  Those ills which clearer-eyed folks tend to blame on the conservatives themselves.

      Jews, gays, blacks, Democrats, Mexicans... the names are interchangeable.  The story line stays the same:  They are screwing up the world, using their nefarious power to foil the ambitions of Decent People everywhere.  They may be few in number, but possess the supernatural power of Evil.

      They swallow so much bullshit, it's a wonder they find room for beer.

          This place is a playground for words.  Play.  Have as much fun as you want.  Say what you want to say.  I think you'll find the words come.

            The 2 traits of the Other is that "they" are:

            1. Mentally, spiritually, physically degenerated
            1. Have almost supernatural power of distruction

            That's what Hitlers said about jews, and that is what the GOP says about liberals.

            For instance "evolution" is so obviously false and degenerate, but the idea has the power to destroy civilization and religion. Degenerate and false but supernaturally destructive

              These people are always afraid, and what they're afraid of always seems to be the reflection in the mirror.
