A thought occurred to my apropos my post about conversations with liberals. As you recall, those conversations reveal (a) that they live in something of a factual vacuum and (b) that fact that’s not in the pages of the New York Times doesn’t exist, while any “fact” that is in the New York Times is absolutely true. Critical thought is abandoned.
It occurred to me that one of the things these same liberals find most horrifying about Sarah Palin is their suspicion that, as a devout Christian, she actually believes that the Bible is true. It doesn’t seem to occur to them that, if that type of fanaticism scares them, their mindless devotion to the New York Times is just as fanatical and, to those of us who do not believe in the Gospel According to the Times, just as ignorant and frightening. The one thing I’ll add is that, while Palin reads the Times, these liberals do not read the bible.
