Drain the Swamp

Talking Points Memo posted "An Open Letter to Conservatives" a few days ago written by Russell King.

King's letter should be required reading for anyone who has an interest in politics and the health of our democracy.

King does an incredible job of exhaustively documenting the jaw-dropping behavior of many conservatives.

He closes his letter thus:
So, dear conservatives, get to work.  Drain the swamp of the conspiracy nuts, the bold-faced liars undeterred by demonstrable facts, the overt hypocrisy and the hatred.  Then offer us a calm, responsible, grownup agenda based on your values and your vision for America.  We may or may not agree with your values and vision, but we'll certainly welcome you back to the American mainstream with open arms.  We need you.

Question with boldness even the existence of a God; because, if there be one, he must more approve of the homage of reason, than that of blind-folded fear. ---Thomas Jefferson
