A comment I posted in Krugman's post, Delusions of Reason:
Similarly, Republicans often project their flaws onto Democrats:
- Obama is a Nazi: It is almost insanely obvious who the real fascists are. Oh right, he wants to steal their money...
- Democratic policies will destroy the economy: A slew of recent data-oriented publications show the opposite, although one claims that it does not matter. Oddly, no publication claimed Republicans are better for the economy or for the stock market.
- Liberal policies will destroy the country: Studies typically show an inverse correlation between religiosity and inequality with social welfare.
- Democrats will take away our freedom: The freedom of money is such an import human right, along with freedom for guns and SUV's, but not the freedom from want, to have a one's health, etc.
