I thought the chorus was awfully loud!

Michael J. Totten - Zombie Hordes of Theo-cons:
Andrew Coyne utterly demolishes the silly idea that Bush won his re-election campaign by unleashing an army of fundamentalist Christians across the red heartland. I mean, he really blows that theory to pieces. Read it.

Then he asks:
When a candidate draws increased numbers of votes from groups not traditionally identified with his party, we usually call that "broadening the base." So why the fascination with zombie hordes of theo-cons?
That’s real easy. It’s emotionally satisfying. The crazies are taking over is a lot easier to swallow than we f*cked up and lost.
They're living in a fantasy world, much like their candidate.
