Conservatives Are Mindless Little Childrenon September 23, 2012 at 5:12 pm
Seriously, are they ever going to take the diapers off and grow up? If you don’t know who David Frum is, he was one of the conservative intellectuals that was fired from his think tank job for daring to maintain his integrity and not toe the party line. Frum still pushes conservative ideology, he’s just not a rabid lunatic and regularly bashes the right for being insane. Because of that, this sort of thing happens:

Instead of defending Malkin on the merits of whatever her argument was, her conservative minions went for lies instead. Thinking is hard so why bother? This is not an isolated incident. If you’ll recall, conservative groups like to suppress dissenting opinion by less than legitimate means. And people wonder why the country is so divided. Half of it is fully committed to winning through cheating and lying. How do you reason with people so lacking in ethics and integrity?
