8. This is what happens when ignorant, impressionable, uneducated simpletons...

listen to a steady dose of Fox News, Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck and Michael Savage for years.

These fools are so doped up on fear and hate, that their humanity and common sense has been driven out of them.

Have you ever tried to talk to one of these morons? I have, and it's exasperating.

They only know talking points. They spew their little soundbytes with such emotion, but when you refute their balderdash with facts, they move on to the next ridiculous lie.

And when you ask them to site sources, they say things like, "I read it in Sean Hannity's book!"

My husband and I were having a discussion with a Glenn Beck fan and the guy actually said, "Look. I get my information from many sources. I do like Beck, but I also read books by Hannity, O'Reilly and Mark Levin."

My husband replied, "Getting information from varied sources doesn't mean reading the books that Glenn Beck tells you to read."

Seriously. These people are off-the-charts nimrods. They are married to their ignorance. They are proud of it.

What we're dealing with here is tens of thousands of "Cousin Eddies" who are now experts on Middle-East policy and macroeconomics--simply because Fox News fills their brains with garbage and tells them that they're the brilliant ones because they *dare* to look beyond the liberal media.

It's crazy.
