  •  The Conservative/RW movement in the US (5+ / 0-)

    has been completely given over to magical thinking for decades now. It has corrupted their perception on every issue of importance, from "Planning is evil! Markets can solve every problem automatically!" to "Invading Iraq will be a cakewalk! We'll be greeted as liberators! Saddam has WMDs!".

    I won't even start on the overt lunacies peddled by their CT noise machine (Drudge, Limbaugh, Rush, ad nausea).

    That reality has finally given them an electoral slap upside the head is salutory but it's not enough. There has to be a strenuous, consistent push back against the substitution of wishful thinking for factual analysis across the board.  

    Nothing human is alien to me.
