    From our viewpoint they are crazy. By most objective standards of fact-based reality they are crazy. However, there are reasons this display of Right-wing echo chamber enabled reality should concern us. The primary reason is that these folk truly BELIEVE their S**T. To have a a growing number of crazy zealots, even if they occupy a fringe of society in numbers, poisons the well for reasonable politics for all of us.

    I direct my anger and disgust at those who profit by propagating these lies, like Beck, and remain prepared to call out the 'true believers' or even parroters of that meme whenever I can. We need to confront this with our own level of aroused concern. Good on you for posting this blog note!

    •  Sadly, like the radical televangicals she mimics, (6+ / 0-)

      only a major sex scandal is likely to tarnish her armor (and, if it's like all the other "sinner" televangicals, only slightly and only for a few months max).

      She has convinced her flock that she can do no wrong - and now that they've bought into it, she now believes it even more. A self-fulfilling prophecy.

      Or more likely just recursive idiocracy.

      Either way, t's safe to say the next step for her following a full-blown investigation would be a spot on Dancing With The Stars.

      If you don't think they will, you're wrong.
