They eat facts for breakfast

Isn't it amazing how right-wingers fear facts? There's a NYT story today about Florida governor Rick Scott vetoing the state appropriation for public broadcasting. PBS really irks the radical right. They know it means allowing pesky facts and science and uncontrolled whatnot on TV -- and they won't stand for that. No, sir. Gotta muzzle it.

Welcome to the United States of the 21st century. If these guys get their way, a new and horrifying edition of the Dark Ages will soon be upon us -- and this is not an exaggeration. The rightwing lunatic fringe would be thrilled to see this happen. Maybe they could even have slaves again!
