Garden State of Insanity

or ignorance, or dark-ages religious lunacy.

Or all of the above, with a little racism thrown in for good measure.

In New Jersey, our conservatives aren’t afraid to tell pollsters just how loopy and clueless they are. You could even say that they are a little proud of their retrograde views.

Eric Kleefeld at TPM is just as perplexed:

My home state of New Jersey is one crazy place, according to the new survey of the state by Public Policy Polling (D).

Dave Weigel points out that one out of every three New Jersey conservatives think that Obama could be the anti-Christ. To be precise, 18% of self-identified conservatives affirmatively say that Obama is the anti-Christ, with 17% not sure. Among the self-identified Republican label, it’s 14% who say Obama has the number 666 hidden underneath his hair, plus 15% who aren’t sure.

At least we still have The Boss, and William Carlos Williams, and Sarah Vaughan and Cory Booker. We need all the balancing help we can get.


Fear is Failing

The fear-mongering about Health Care Reform from the right-wing and the special interests hasn’t moved public opinion. The same way that fear failed last November.

According to a new poll by Gallup all the hysterics at HCR forums, the misinformation campaign and the lies have not had the desired effect.

Gallup HCR 9:8:09

I confess that I have a little bit of fear that Dems might mess this one up. I hope I’m proven wrong…
