More from the reality-based community.

In yet another example of the willful ignorance of the American populace, we now have objective proof that Bush supporters are living in Cloud-Cuckoo Land. (It's short. Read it. Point it out to Bush supporters.) On five out of eight questions regarding Bush's policies, less than 40% correctly identified the president's position; two more, it was less than 60%. These weren't even questions about what the voter's own position was, or whether the voter agreed with the president on that particular position -- I know people can vote for somebody while not agreeing with them on all issues. The question was just, "What do you think his position is on X?" These people seem to be applying a syllogism that runs something like, "All good people agree with my positions. Dubya is a good preson. Therefore Dubya agrees with my positions." Never mind that both of the premises are probably wrong. :-P

Also, a significant number of Bush-supporters, often a majority, continue to believe the things that have been insinuated, rather than the truths that have been admitted, even by Rumsfeld, or Bush himself. They still think that Saddam had WMD, supported Al Qaeda, and had a hand in 9/11.

Government through illusion -- charlatanocracy? -- coming soon to a former-democracy near you.
