If You Think You're Part of the Solution, You're likely Part of the Problem.

They really are crazy. Perhaps they aren't clinically insane; but at least in their political writing, they put on an excellent imitation of it.

"They" are the most partisan political bloggers. The ones convinced that newspapers and the major networks are part of the conspiracy. The ones who know for certain -- without having to check -- that any evidence their party and their Presidential candidate have done wrong is forged. (Sometimes it is. "A stopped clock's right two times a day." But these people are twenty-four-hour clocks.)

Unfortunately, there are people working for each of the major parties who share this paranoia. Even more unfortunately, some of these party faithful are fighting (delusional) fire with (real, if usually incompetent) fire.
