Conservatives without Conscience
Worse than Watergate

Former Nixon aide and author John Dean is making the talk shows discussing his latest book "Conservatives without Conscience". I watched his interviews with Keith Olbermann and with Jon Stewart yesterday. The blogosphere is electric with excerpts highlighting his research on authoritarianism in democracy. In essence he's talking and writing about the "kool-aid drinkers" who control the conservative movement in DC and now at the state level.

Scary. Read or listen for yourself. This should be of particular interest to Oklahoma voters since every Republican is trying to "out conservative" the others in their campaigns for primary votes. They don't even refer to themselves as Republicans, just conservatives. Maybe a better word is kooks, except that their worldview is frightening, just how they like it. Fearmongering.
