If I only had a nickel for every time experts have had to speculate as to whether far-right Republicans are "willfully" dishonest or "ignorant of the facts."Testify. It's so hard to tell which Republicans are deliberate purveyors of deception in the service of evil, and which are merely ignorant fools desperate to reach a microphone. Perhaps I should start sorting through the big name players. Cheney: Evil. Bachmann: Evil. Inhofe: Idiot. Probably.
Of course, it isn't an either/or position. They're are probably plenty of Republican public figures who can be evil or goddamn idiotic, depending on circumstance. I shall have to construct a Venn diagram.
