Wow. Just.... wow.

From the comments over at Cliff Schecter's site:

My large (90+) extended family are mostly poor white East Texas evangelicals. And they love, love love Bush. They would make him president for life if they could. At a recent family holiday get together, one uncle actually suggested this and there were knowing nods all around and even and amen or two. Crazy thing is that my family is mostly rural poor and they have really suffered economic hardships under this administration. A number are having trouble putting food on the table and a few have lost their homes. Yet they just don't make the connection. One aunt who lost her job in Nov when the company shut down blames Bill Clinton for her current situation!

I've tried to point out that SEVEN years ago with Bill was prez, no one in the family was on food stamps. But they just can't make that connection.

Wow.  I just don't understand my own country.  I know it's wrong to make judgments – and I know that when you do, you invoke the wrath of those who dislike your opinion.  Having said that, I think it is important for intelligent, thinking people to have some discernment.  And in this case, I think you can safely navigate toward the exit door and then flee from the crazy people in the room.
