Personally, I’m getting a little tired of all this making fun of conservatives. When you think about it, they deserve a lot of respect.
First, they have to believe whatever the Bush administration or lesser congressional-type republicans tells them to believe. Yea sure, I know, that sounds like something any idiot could do, but those beliefs often change from day to day and often end up diametrically opposed to what they were the day before. It takes an incredibly agile mind to constantly change core values and beliefs without ever acknowledging the contradictions.
Next, they have to disbelieve absolutely whatever a certain other class of people believe. This includes democrats, independents, moderates, the educated, the scientists, the French, and just about everyone else in the world.
Then to top it all off, every piece of art or entertainment must conform to the daily beliefs, whatever they are, or it must be boycotted, burned, or banished (not stashed under the mattress, no, no, no).
And finally, they have to disbelieve, and disbelieve passionately, easily observable reality. Those people being tortured, they’re not feeling any pain. South Park? Karl Rove couldn’t have written it any better.
It’s not easy being that fucking stupid. It really takes a lot of work. Show some respect, people.
