Sadly ... many conservatives seem to have dedicated their lives to lending credence to the left's "conservatives are idiots" claim.From his citations apparently the reasoning goes something like this:
"They say that men lived alongside dinosaurs? They're crazy to believe that!"
"They say the earth is flat? They're crazy to believe that!"
"They call themselves conservatives? Why would you question that?"
Neither conservatives nor liberals can control who's on their side of the barricades. And no amount of dissociation will eliminate the resulting slanders. In particular, liberals will slander opponents no matter what they do.
