Reposted quote of the day

"I remain convinced that American conservative thought is now not a philosophy but, rather, a book of spells, a series of conjuring words that have meaning only to the initiates." - Charles Pierce, commenting on the vacuousness of S.E. Cupp

From The Daily Doubter.

Two comments: (1) The word "conservative" in "American conservative thought" should be in scare quotes. (2) The video linked in the first link is incredibly painful to watch, precisely because it makes Pierce's point so effectively.
