The Reptilian - Sorry, Republican - Brain Is a Wonder

Adherence to the crackpot economic theories of supply-side economics is one of the source points for the prion disease that is now rampaging unchecked through the collective conservative Republican brain. (Jonathan Chait wrote the definitive book on this particular aspect of the origins of the epidemic.) It has infected all aspects of Republican thinking on the subjects of money, regulation, taxation, and, well, math. Those are the higher intellectual functions that it has attacked. And part of the encroaching dementia has been a deep resentment of anything resembling a cure, and any attempt to arrest or resist the course of the disease.


These guys are the anti-vaxxers of public policy.
