I believe I can fly, evidence notwithstanding (global warming redux)

November 24, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

Those of us with some libertarian sympathies think the big problem with the Tea Party isn’t its concern over the size of government and deficits. It’s the complete disregard of facts. Utilitarians, whatever their politics, don’t see such willful ignorance as a contribution to general happiness. Particularly if it leads to some of our favorite cities being underwater in our lifetimes.

The Economist takes a clever look at this, comparing Tea Party beliefs on global warming with Redskins fans’ belief that the Redskins actually beat the Eagles last time around.
