-- but are so willfully meatbag-stupid that they will obediently ignore the rubble of one Republican catastrophe after another and the stinking carcass of one old, debunked bold-face Fox News/Hate Radio lie after another while happily flitting on to the new ridiculous, bold-face Fox News/Hate Radio lie...
...and then to the next..and to the next...and to the next...believing the same liars over and over again...year after year year...
So if you still cling to the fantasy that this mob's rampage through our democracy can be stopped with sweet reason and by waving facts around you have completely missed the point of the the last 25 years.
In fact, the plan to create this mob of reprogrammable meatbags worked so well that the latest generation of barely-literate Conservative propagandists no longer need to strain their limited vocabularies and room temp IQs to make up new, batshit crazy conspiracies to keep the base distracted.
These days can just haul any old, long-debunked slander out of storage (from the NYT, June, 2005)
Rove Criticizes Liberals on 9/11..."Conservatives saw the savagery of 9/11 in the attacks and prepared for war; liberals saw the savagery of the 9/11 attacks and wanted to prepare indictments and offer therapy and understanding for our attackers," Mr. Rove, the senior political adviser to President Bush, said at a fund-raiser in Midtown for the Conservative Party of New York State.
Citing calls by progressive groups to respond carefully to the attacks, Mr. Rove said to the applause of several hundred audience members, "I don't know about you, but moderation and restraint is not what I felt when I watched the twin towers crumble to the ground, a side of the Pentagon destroyed, and almost 3,000 of our fellow citizens perish in flames and rubble."...Mr. Rove also said American armed forces overseas were in more jeopardy as a result of remarks last week by Senator Richard J. Durbin, Democrat of Illinois, who compared American mistreatment of detainees to the acts of "Nazis, Soviets in their gulags, or some mad regime -- Pol Pot or others."
"Has there ever been a more revealing moment this year?" Mr. Rove asked. "Let me just put this in fairly simple terms: Al Jazeera now broadcasts the words of Senator Durbin to the Mideast, certainly putting our troops in greater danger. No more needs to be said about the motives of liberals."...
