Very funny. It reminds me of Hillary Clinton's reply to someone (maybe it was even Obama???) who was critcizing her and Bill for the way things were in the country in the late 1990s under Bill, and her reply was something like, 'What part of that period didn't you like? The peace or the prosperity?' Very funny indeed.

Yeah...

And still, a shocking majority of people believe that Republicans are better with money than Democrats. Like Drew Westen says, the Republicans, in general, have no respect or use for science, except in the spheres of public relations. They know what every organized religion knows. People will do & believe anything to be "us" instead of "them".

You're one of "us" if you believe in creationism. If not, you're "them". And Viola! A super majority of Americans believe the earth is 7,000 years old.

Only a Corgi owning, Volvo driving, Latte sipping Liberals (read "them") would believe that Republicans aren't better at managing wealth. That's all it takes. Magically, facts don't matter. Prejudice shepherds truth.
