Ones, Zeros, and Magickal Thinking 2

The San Jose Mercury-News investigates why the Republican Party has lost Silicon Valley. It seems to be another manifestation of Stephen Colbert’s observation that reality has a liberal bias.

A nugget:

“We all work on evidence-based reasoning, and that’s much more of a Democratic mindset than a Republican mindset,” said Johnvey Hwang, 34, a San Francisco software engineer who volunteered with the Obama campaign. “It’s hard to side with a party that’s still trying to reach out to their base of creationists.”

    I’ve run into the comment — it now must be a GOP talking point — that anyone who calls the GOP anti-science is a believer in a conspiracy that doesn’t exist. From the Mercury News: “Veteran California GOP consultant Kevin Spillane, however, said the idea of a ‘Republican war on science’ is just ‘hype.'” Keep in mind the GOP is dead in California. Now, from a troll on my blog: “What anti-science lunacy? Someone, somewhere, said something you don’t agree with? If it’s more than that please tell me where this great anti-science conspiracy is.”

    And when Hilary Clinton said there was vast right-wing conspiracy, everyone made fun of her.  ALEC, Koch Brothers, and so on.  Maybe there aren’t secret meetings in the Caymans–oh! wait!
