← Does Conservatism Have to Be Synonymous With Ignorance?

Dr. Krauss needs to find a modern version of Max Perkins but it's hard to find fault with any of the notions he put forth in this piece.

Santorum is not the disease; he is only an early symptom, like the first oozing chancre of syphilis. Well, I suppose Bush Light was the first massive pecker-sore and Satorum only represents the incurable spread.

"No one ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American public," wrote H. L. Mencken, but people have to wise up eventually or there will be no eventually.

You have to wonder whether seemingly intelligent, articulate men like Santorum (or more extremely like Dinesh D'Souza or other noted Apologists) really believe what they are saying or if they are just applying Menckenesque economic principles by pandering to the booboise to get stinky rich. Their side of the argument pays far better than ours.

Santorum's ilk and the Tea Party will either kill the Republican Party or kill us all and neither is a palatable option. We shall not do well with a one-party system.

I even know why this toxification of the Republican Party happened and I know when it happened but I'll save that for another post not so close to bedtime- but here are two clues- Dixiecrats and Strom Thurmond.
