Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

This Is Why We Can't Have Nice Things

This has always been the thing about modern conservatives (and not a few conservatives from the past).  They have a steadfast refusal to consider evidence contradictory to their deeply held beliefs.  I realize that this is a consistent human feature.  We tend to cling to beliefs over evidence, but it especially true of conservatives.  And what's more, it's true when it directly applies to their lives.
