Quote of the Day

“Some of the current GOP delusions: the deficit is rising (it isnít); the debt is currently unsustainable (it isnít); the public wants Obamacare ended (itís split on even delaying it); climate change has nothing to do with human-produced carbon emissions (it is, according to almost every single reputable scientist examining the issue). Why are we surprised that the people who predicted a Romney landslide a day before he was trounced might actually be prone to believing in things that simply are not true by any empirical, objective standard? Thatís the true danger here. Their epistemic closure is now not just threatening them, but all of us.”

-- Andrew Sullivan, “The Debt Ceiling Denialists,” The Dish
