There comes a time when you have to admit that you cannot help an addict; you have to let him go sink on his own.
What is today called "American Conservativism" has abandoned whatever principles drove Eisenhower and even Goldwater, and abandoned basic fidelity to physical facts. Global warming, evolution, WMDs in Iraq, basic facts of female human biology, Obama's birthplace, the fact that one of our casualties in Benghazi was a member of the rescue team flown in from Tripoli ... on these and so many other matters, "conservatives" simply deny simple matters of physical reality because fidelity to their team and the fear of admitting error trumps all else.
Liberals have many faults but chief of them, today, is having compromised so much than any further movement toward agreeing with conservatives means abandoning reality itself.
I'm sorry if this hurts anyone's feelings, but it's really time that some of you grow a pair of balls and admit you were wrong.
