Insane Disturbing Stat Of The Day

In case you need more proof of just how completely unhinged and, well, kind of evil Republicans are…

We have some new national polling coming out tomorrow on offshore drilling. The most astounding number from the poll? 28% of Republicans said the recent oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico made them more likely to support drilling off the coast to an equal 28% who said it made them less likely to be supportive. 44% said it made no difference to them and that’s understandable, but why would an oil spill make you more supportive of drilling?

The only two explanations I can think of are:

1) “Fuck you, liberals!  Anything that drives them this crazy must be a good thing.”

2) “Now that I’ve seen the offshore drilling worst-case scenario… it’s not so bad, really.  Losing an entire coastline every once in a while seems like an acceptable risk to me.”

    I’ll go with 1). It’s a classic example of the sort of negative logic bigots love to embrace: “If hate this, it must be good!”

    That 28% of Republican voters might think this way doesn’t surprise me. That 28% of Democratic voters choose positions based on such logic wouldn’t surprise me, either.

    I’m going with #1 also. They’re in total denial about #2. They have seriously convinced themselves that this spill offed a few dozen tuna and that’s the end of it.
