The Long Con

An article from the Baffler that explores the long connection between the modern American Conservative movement and, well, dishonesty.  This article is back from the days when Mitt Romney was running for president (Nov. 2012).  Not that actual political conservatism has any inherent connection with dishonesty, it is just that the goals of modern American conservatives, living in modern America, seem to do better when objective reality can be ignored.  Worth a read if you find some of the statements from our conservative leaders especially disturbing.  Nothing new here, really.
