Conservatives Accused Of Being Mentally Defective

From The Heritage Foundation, I’m Ernest Istook.

Conservatives are simpletons with a mental defect.

That claim is offensive, odious, obnoxious and downright deranged. But it’s the thesis of a book that liberals are buying up, written by Chris Mooney, called “The Republican Brain.” He claims it’s science, not bias; that Republicans, Tea Partiers and other conservatives have a brain defect that makes us anti-science muddled thinkers, unable to process anything except simplistic ideas. The proof, he claims, is opposition to global warming and refusal to believe that evolution alone accounts for our creation.

The book distorts the very science the author claims to believe in.

And he gives a free pass to the vast number of fringe beliefs on the left.

Don’t expect tolerance. The left is seriously buying this book and its nonsense that conservatives have warped minds.  

How sickening can you get?

    They have to believe that. A “defect” can be the only defense to their fear and dependence based strategy. Thank you.

    Either Istook didn’t read it which makes him a fraud, a liar and a hypocrite, or he did in which case he’s an irredeemable idiot.
