Simplistic Anecdotes

John Cole has the background to credibly state this:
Look- the intellectual wing of the Republican party is dead. What is left are brain-dead acolytes spreading meaningless and simplistic anecdotes, trite stories, and distilled nonsense passed on that has a more fitting home in AM radio. The McCain campaign, once again, is just a symptom of the real problem- an intellectually incurious and lazy movement in the final ugly spasms of death. The McCain campaign is now, in their interviews with the press, spreading what we can all recognize as wingnut email chains.
Follow the link, because the post where he reaches this point actually begins by discussing an incredible - and nauseating - little tale spreading in "conservative" circles as something between humor and a "Spread the Wealth" attack.
