Articles I Wish I Had Written: Both Parties Have Their Kooks

Filed under: Uncategorized — Fritz @ 3:37 pm

Please read “Both Parties Have Their Fanatics” by David Paul Kuhn at Real Clear Politics.  Kuhn writes,

Fully 35 percent of Democrats believe George W. Bush had advance knowledge of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Fully 28 percent of Republicans believe Barack Obama wasn’t born in the United States.

Meet the fanatical third.

Kuhn sums it up, but you might want to read “The Paranoid Style in American Politics” by Richard Hofstadter for yourself.
