Republicans and conservatives have failed thus far to properly fight in the information war — note the numbers in this article from a few weeks ago — there are so many purposefully misinformed people in this country. Here is Julie Kelly:
Pause for a moment and imagine you are so gullible that you believe one of the biggest political stunts of all time—that your mind is so incurious and facile that you’ve fallen for a crackpot conspiracy theory force-fed to you by fabulists in the media for two solid years.
