I love this piece. It lays out all the ridiculous things conservatives today believe like 10,000 scientists have made up human caused climate change for grant money, lol. Or the news media conspires to make Trump and the Republicans look bad in exchange for what no one knows? Or that there is widespread voter fraud even though that would be essentially impossible and would be ridiculously impractical. But my favorite has to be:

6. The belief that the “Deep State” entrapped Trump with Russia entanglements before the 2016 in order to derail his presidency if he won, but didn’t use it to stop him from winning, but were blindsided when he won, but have stymied his every move afterward.

I kind of like #5:

The belief that there was a deep conspiracy to elect a man named “Barack Hussein Obama” to the presidency in order to implement socialism in America…and that the shadowy socialist cabal picked a guy named “Barack Hussein Obama” for the job. Or made up his birth certificate from scratch and decided on one of the most unlikely presidential names imaginable in his birth year.
The once Grand Old Party has gone to POT. It is now the Party of Trump, and its adherents must believe all sorts of sketchy and unproven things in order to be faithful to the party. No longer is the Republican Party made up of conservatives. Conservatives have gone the way of the dodo in Washington.

The Barr-Durham Investigation will prove your Washington Monthly article is just another Fake News piece .....

But, you still will not be able to see it then.

They are ALL infinitely amusing, but my current favorites are about Ukraine.

They have this super-secret DNC server and it was THEY ... Not Russia who meddled in our election to ensnare Paul Manafort and help Hillary win.

This shit is better than Pizzagate ... Cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs! :cool:

So ... you are saying that, if a poll revealed this about the Republicans, it would merely be a Poll PoT?

Sane conservatives, like sane liberals and sane moderates, have been marginalized By trump & company. Only the far right is recognized by this administration and its lackeys.

Well the thing is regarding climate change is there are not 10,000 scientists in the entire world who are qualified to voice an expert opinion on the subject. Most of the "scientists" who do have opinions on climate change and state them are either in unrelated fields or fields only tangentially related to the subject. Thus while they might be accomplished scientists their beliefs are not very useful.

I liked this:
It goes on and on. And that’s just the standard stuff you hear from most GOP politicians on any given day. It doesn’t even get into the really weird conspiracies that millions of Republican voters actively believe, like QAnon, secret 5th column communists, pedophile illuminati, etc. It also doesn’t touch the dangerously errant shibboleths like “tax cuts pay for themselves” or “anyone can escape poverty if they really want to” which, while not conspiracy theories, are false articles of faith with destructive consequences.

Do you believe that the fossil fuel companies have spent billions trying to paint climate change as fake science? Do you believe that climate change is fake science?
