12. Conservatives of that ilk have always been a bit sweet on fascism...

...and often more than a little. (No surprise that Buchanan was her mentor.) They loved Franco, the Shah, Pinochet, South American Juntas, and now Putin. Before the war they admired Mussolini's Italy. I swear, for some of them, the only reason they didn't love the Nazis was because they were "the other team", and would have been happy as clams if the Western powers had joined with the Nazis to take down the Soviet Union.

She and her '90s pals weren't "optimistic" Reaganists, they were self-righteous entitled Ivy League fucks who really believed everything would go the way it did in the fanfiction of "the way things will go" they wrote in their heads. And they'd been groomed by the Wingnut Welfare system to believe precisely that and go forth to propagandize the message. All of them could count on a RW-funded make-work landing pad when they were "between gigs". They didn't have to venture out into the real "free market" they championed. A few phone calls and they could always turn up someone willing to pay them for some work.

Laura, as well as Anne and Dinesh, ran into the wall of reality, that the world wasn't going to conform itself to their childish fantasies, and they went nuclear.

"Some men" (and women) "just want to watch the world burn."
