They see the same things I do, right? Like, how it's difficult to find a full-time job because few employers are willing to provide benefits. And how it's possible to work smack dab in the middle of a major metropolitan area and still be paid only $7.25 an hour-and expected to live off that. And how those who can't find a job for $7.25 an hour are standing in line outside of a church to receive free sandwiches. SO MANY jobs could be created if we attempted to actually do something about global warming.

But all it takes is the most perfunctory rhetoric—even when it's entirely at odds with concrete evidence—to convince liberals that the Democrats are on their side.

It is difficult to get a man to understand something when his tribal loyalty depends on his not understanding it.

"A man who lies to himself, and believes his own lies, becomes unable to recognize truth, either in himself or in anyone else, and he ends up losing respect for himself and for others. When he has no respect for anyone, he can no longer love, and in him, he yields to his impulses, indulges in the lowest form of pleasure, and behaves in the end like an animal in satisfying his vices. And it all comes from lying--to others and to yourself."
- Fyodor Dostoevsky, The Brothers Karamazov
