Most thinking people, conservatives included, would agree that the Right Wing "mainstream" has shifted substantially further to the right and is dangerously close to the fringe. ET's glorious Right Wing Brotherhood is collectively well to the right of this so-called "mainstream" and, therefore, well beyond that fringe demarcation. Isn't it curious that it it is usually the people with the least knowledge who display the most certainty? Possessing a mere nodding acquaintance, if that, they suddenly become experts ready to tackle anyone questioning their one-dimensional faith-based political and economic ideology. We'll leave aside for now the topic of religion, together with its attendant joys of intolerance and exclusion. And so, the question is: Why is ET getting stupider and stupider?
