No matter how much damage he does, no matter how idiotic he gets, it seems that Bush’s popularity just won’t drop below 25%. Why? Because there is a small core of people who will never stop believing him, who would walk into a volcano for his dumb ass. People like this.

That link is to an article written by British reporter Johann Hari, undercover at a cruise put on by the Neocons of National Review magazine. It will have you giggling with horror and clawing your eyes with amusement. He goes into the belly of the deluded beast, interacting with the rabid conservative pundits and lunatic authoritarian rabble. But you can’t help but feel that Hari cherry-picked the most appalling quotes from his fellow shipmates; surely among the “Muslims are breeding, soon, they’ll have the whole of Europe” and “Pinochet is a hero, he saved Chile” comments, there must have been a few “please pass the salt’s” and “nice weather we’re having’s”. These bastards sound right-wing talking points as dictated by the Mad Hatter. The Iraq war couldn’t have gone better. Liberals don’t respect the Constitution. Someone should suicide bomb the UN building in New York. The Left wanted the US to be humiliated and lose the Vietnam war. And most strongly, according to Hari, that Muslims are taking over the world.

All in all, a bunch of rich white people paying other rich white people to tell them that rich white people are being oppressed. Nice racket.
