A most excellent quote. It leads off this American Thinker[*1] article.
Emotion has totally replaced reason as the arbiter of arguments in public life today. It is enough to really, really, really, really believe that you’re right. Facts simply don’t matter–they’re just things you can manipulate to say whatever you want them to say, anyway. All that really matters is that you care more than your opponent.
This is really, really dangerous.
