I’m not usually a Bill Maher fan, but he certainly nails it here. What IS it with Republicans’ knee-jerk opposition to science, rationality, sanity, and lots of stuff they themselves supported just a few years ago?!? On one level, of course, it’s simply politics: if Democrats are fer it, they’re again’ it. On another level, though, it’s just bonkers. I’d say 30% political calculation, 70% bonkers, but even if it’s 50% each, that’s not good. Bottom line: today’s GOP is the John Birch Society, with basically no significant differences on policy, ideology, or lunacy. How can this party be a major party in the United States of America in the year 2012? Perhaps this video clip might explain it?
