Jacob over at Contextual Criticism asks the question, Why would anyone vote Republican especially after their dismal record? He’s got a point. Cathy Bonner once told me that if Dubya was a serial killer there would still be 20% of the population that supports him. I’m starting to wonder if mass psychosis is systemic to a huge swath of population.
It never occurred to me that democracy might be in danger of it’s own inclusiveness. What if the voters are nuts? Is that why the Republicans typically oppose mental health funding? Are they afraid of being committed? They should be. Maybe we should start funding some sort of vaccine.
