If families are all unhappy in their own way, so are political believers likewise dumb in their own way. Despite the relentless trashing and plunging of their hopes, progressives continue to believe the corporate powers that be can be restrained, and a better way can be achieved. And Republicans? They still believe there were WMDs in Iraq. Really. A new poll out of Dartmouth finds that 63% of GOP respondents still believe Iraq had weapons of mass destruction. And 64% believe President Obama was born in another country. Hey. At least he was born on this planet.
