The right wing of the Republican Party cannot function because its rejection of evidence-based thinking assures chaotic, irrational and hysterical behavior. Frankly, I do not believe they will attempt to return to the reality-based universe because they have a financial and personal interest in sustaining their beliefs and behavior.
For example, think of Carly Fiorina and her lies about Planned Parenthood keeping fetuses alive so that their brains can be harvested or the Republican committee reinvestigating Benghazi for the ninth time because they ‘know’ there must be some dirt on Hillary Clinton that the other bipartisan committees missed. Think of their insistence on calling President Obama the ‘Kenyan Usurper’ and the science deniers and their wars against climate change and global warming.
There are many other examples.
An intellect that is equal parts stupid and willfully ignorant that lies and believes its own lies belongs in a lunatic asylum.
Unfortunately, we don’t have any.
