You Must Read This

Particularly if you’ve ever felt one minute’s worth of sympathy for the likes of Sarah Palin, Michelle Bachmann, Sharron Angle, or Christine O’Donnell, the Fab Four of the Crazy Lady movement, you must read this:

The Very Useful Idiocy of Christine O’Donnell

This issue of “faux populism” needs to be discussed a lot more than it has been, because it cuts to the heart of the Crazy Lady movement, and indeed the whole Teabagger cult.  The one undeniable truth is that we are actually in danger from those nice billionaires who are propping the whole thing up, but not as much danger as we face from our own gullibility.

The reason Teabaggers are programmed to be anti-knowledge is that knowledge would destroy the Teabagger movement.  So I say, don’t be afraid of it.  Educate yourself.  Trust me, the more you know, the less Teabaggery you will become.  And that’s a good thing.
