21. Exactly what I was thinking.

First, it was global warming -- which I could half-way understand since the notion of a global warming hoax was a concerted campaign financed by the oil companies.
Then, Truthers. Okay, maybe understandable since the real deficit in this country is scientific illiteracy.
Birthers. Well, they have "Oil-ly Olay" as a spokesperson. At least, she's not a figment of imagination; she's alive.

But lately? The Polls are made-up?
And now, the delusion that the BLS is a corrupt facet of the Obama campaign is made-up and brought to national attention within a few hours!

These are dangerous delusions. We're talking about a cult-mentality that has infected a large segment of the public.
And guess what else? They have guns and they think that "liberals" are out to destroy the country. Yes, this is scary.
