|The Word - Coverage of Denial|
"This is a return to the Republican values that I love. They don't let reality push them around. They just pretend the world is what they say it is."
That's the Republicans in a nutshell, don't you think? Reality means nothing to them. Global warming, evolution, history - forget all that. It's belief that makes the world. If you don't believe it, it doesn't exist.
It's pure faith-based thinking. Yes, they'll attempt to persuade others using evidence, if they can. But if the facts don't back them up, they just make up their own facts. Republicans don't let reality push them around.
(Ironically, Democrats let everything push them around,... but that's another story.)
