    No amount of words can assuage paranoia, and that's what we're dealing with.  When you try to pacify a paranoiac, they just include you in the conspiracy.

    I don't mean a healthy suspicion of the slippery slope,  but outright paranoia.  When you think of how many people are convinced that ACORN just stole this election for a Kenyan Communist/Nazi... there are some freakin' delusional people out there.  These people are absolutely paranoid, and nothing will change that except themselves.  Or their natural death.

    I think where a lot of the fights here at dkos come from is that the extreme right has hijacked the discussion so much, that we're mired in this trap of back-and-forth talking points that feed the paranoia of those who've got it.  

    Conservatives need to realize that their Silent Moral Majority is neither silent, nor moral, nor a majority.
