Republicans Have Bad Brains?

"...his new book The Republican Brain, which purports to show that conservatives are, literally by nature, more closed-minded and resistant to change and facts." That's a non-sequitur for a start, because the Republican Party is not conservative, it's liberal-lite. As a National Review neocon Goldberg knows all about the liberal mindset. Urging America to go careering round the planet starting wars for abstract concepts, wallowing in permanent revolution and "creative destruction", backing a security state that meddles with citizens' liberties, cheerleading for immigration? The neocons, direct descendants of Trotskyism, are the biggest rapid-reaction utopian junkies of all.

Why does Ron Paul run for the Republican Nomination?

Because he has some important things to say and running gives him a good platform from which to say them.

Ron Paul is a brainless loon who doesn't even understand the Constitution he claims to be defending.

I do appreciate his campaign this season, though. Through it, I learned that the right has idiots as venal, vicious, mindless, and resistant to reason as does the left. Thanks, PaulBots, for correcting our view of the world.

Ron Paul is going nowhere... you know that, right?

"They do that because they were born that way."

If you say that about homosexuals, you are tolerant and realistic. If you say it about blacks, you are racist (unless you're black yourself). If you say it about women, you may or may not be sexist, depending on who is manning (er, womanning) the feminist battle stations. If you say it about men, you just might be a writer for Esquire. But if you say it about conservatives, you're a scientist.

Over the past decade, a new fad has taken hold among academics and liberal journalists: call it the new science...
