Know thy self, know thy enemy. A thousand battles, a thousand victories. ~ Sun TsuPeople who know me know I read a lot of rightwing sites, I have for decades. The best way to know what the people I'm fighting are thinking is to actually listen to them. So, I'm here to tell you that conservatives, right now, have flown way past batshit insane into a black hole of blithering idiocy.

Then there is National Review. I used to read National Review when William F. Buckley was alive because, regardless of his politics, he was a witty and gifted writer. Now it is painfully idiotic. The linked article is a long essay defending Ted Cruz's opposition to dildos including Cruz's legal contention that Americans have no constitutional right to masturbate. Really?
Buckley would have dismissed the whole subject with a single wry joke. But National Review as well as many other conservative sites are trying to prove that anti-dildoism is the mark of profound legal scholarship. These many defenses are much more ludicrous than Cruz's originally wasting taxpayers money taking the Texas law outlawing the sale of dildos to the US Supreme Court.
