In the January 19th editor’s note appended to John Keifer’s Reader’s Forum submission the editor stated that the GOP “. . . doesn’t care about governing; it wants to rule, and it lies, cheats and exaggerates to make it happen.” The editor went on to state that the “scary thing is that educated professionals . . . don’t — or won’t— see it.” I beg to differ:

I’m not so certain that the “rabble” faction of the GOP don’t — or won’t — see it, but rather they CAN’T see it. They are manipulated into not “seeing it” by being fed distracting “red-herring” or conspiratorial issues by opinion news and the internet, and thereby into overlooking any related deeper issues.
