What scares me about CPAC

Ted Cruz CPAC

Most of the time I understand that politicians have to pander to particular segments of voters to win support, because that’s what our political system requires them to do to win. (That’s the inherent weakness in our system, IMO.) But what really scares me is that some right wing politicians might actually believe the batshit crazy crap they’re spewing… anti-science, conspiracy theories and fundamentalist religious insanities that inundate political rallies such as CPAC.
