    •  They have their own facts (6+ / 0-)
      1. Brown people are scary, and Republican politicians promise to hate them.
      1. Gay people are icky, and Republican politicians promise to hate them.
      1. Women are not people at all, and Republican politicians promise to hate them.
      1. Socialists are Nazis (not just reenactors) who want to take our guns, and Republican politicians promise to hate them.

      Does most of that make any sense?  No.  Is it going to help anybody, of any political persuasion get a job, or make a mortgage payment, or get help for a sick kid?  It will not.  But none of that really matters when there's somebody who must be hated, and a party that's willing to embrace the hatred.

      •  nah, women are people to Republicans (0+ / 0-)

        They're baby making machines who should "graciously submit to their husband's sacrificial leadership" or something like that (Mike Huckabee is a signatory on that letter that appeared in USA Today in the late 90s...)

    •  Nobody really operates from facts... (0+ / 0-)

      we are herd animals, demo and repub, indie and nihilist, we all act as we were taught.  Rationality rarely, actually, enters into it, with RW wingnuts to leftie progressives.  We act to fulfill our histories not our intellect.

      Corporate PACs, not just bribery but a lifestyle!
