However, I did come across a post on a blog called Kung Fu Monkey that interested me. It's a few months old, but it caught my attention because it almost perfectly encapsulates why I became disillusioned with the Republican Party. He exaggerates a bit (remember, it was Kennedy who made the push to go to the moon), but I think his basic points are pretty sound. Selected excerpt:
Remember Republicans? Sober men in suits, pipes, who'd nod thoughtfully over their latest tract on market-driven fiscal conservatism while grinding out the numbers on rocket science. Remember those serious-looking 1950's-1960's science guys in the movies -- Republican to a one. . . How did they become the party of fairy dust and make believe? How did they become the anti-science guys? The anti-fact guys? The anti-logic guys?Discuss while I recover from yesterday.
