The Fundamentalist Subculture of Ignorance That Embraces 'Discredited, Ridiculous and Even Dangerous Ideas'

UPDATE II: After the movie Game Change (based on the book with the same name), do you think that Palin is the problem, or just a symptom of the fundamentalist subculture of ignorance that embraces 'discredited, ridiculous and even dangerous ideas'?

Read the Washington Post, Sarah Palin’s foolishness ruined U.S. politics.

UPDATE: For several recent articles on point, read:

Washington Post, The e-mail rumor mill is run by conservatives, and

New York Magazine, When Did the GOP Lose Touch With Reality.

And for more on the Republi-con problem with reality, re-read these prior posts:

More Partisan Zealotry Through Highly Selective Editing of Reality, and

Republi-CON Created Reality.

"The rejection of science seems to be part of a politically monolithic red-state fundamentalism, textbook evidence of an unyielding ignorance on the part of the religious." Read The New York Times, The Evangelical Rejection of Reason.
