Still falling…

Posted by Brian on July 15, 2007

An interesting thread about the mentality of the 26% who *still* support President Bush. here. A popular explanation – and one that I happen to agree with – is that it’s tough for a person to admit he or she is wrong. Voting for president is one of every American’s most solemn rights… so to admit that one blew it in a big way by voting for Bush takes a lot of guts.

That’s one of the problems with demonizing the left the way many on the right have done: what do you do when your enemy just so happens to have been right all along? You certainly can’t admit as such and find yourself with a common cause. It’s far better to order a jumbo-sized cup of Kool Aid than to admit one’s belief structure is a sham.
