  •  It's called magical thinking (1+ / 0-)

    That's what mental health pros call it when someone believes in something that is clearly not possible or backed up by facts (which, of course, places most if not all religions in that category, but society is SO not ready to go there yet).

    E.g. tax cuts that pay for themselves, the efficient and fair free market, perpetual motion machines, Mars retrograde, alchemy, etc. Today's Repubs are the latest batch of crazyass magical thinkers. As is Obama, if he still believes in the wonders of bipartisanship, and it's not just a cover for weakness or collusion.

    Sorry, but being likeable doesn't make one right.
