...and so does history. But maybe not to ideologues, especially those on the right? I was listening to the Republicans Behaving Badly podcast, and had to LOL at one of the dingdongs on there who said he doesn't really know or care about history (and yet he was trying to make up facts about it anyway). A Republican who doesn't know or care about history? Almost sounds redundant, but it was funny to hear him come right out and admit it.
Anyway, he obviously didn't know who April Gillespie was or what our role was in starting the Iraq War I. Of course, that didn't stop him, and he tried to wing it anyway. Hilarity ensued.
Personally, I think if you don't know the facts, you should shut up, but that doesn't stop the average right-winger or their noise machine: Hannity, Rush, Laura Ingraham, O'Reilly, Michael Weiner (aka Savage).
