    The first is the Robert Rector/Heritage Foundation talking point. I’ve noticed every recent news story reporting US Census data on spreading and ubiquitous poverty in this country now must feature at least one two calls to Rector and Heritage in which some manner of explanation that the poor aren’t really poor in this country because they have a big tv, most probably flatscreen, a cellphone and an Internet e-mail address. This serves the additional purpose of passing of the Heritage Foundation as an agency that digs up actual facts and numbers, like the Census bureau.

    Yeah, only thatched huts and mud floors need apply.

    It is most distressing how reality is not part of the narrative in Wingnut World. Of course, it’s missing because the facts lean left, so wingnuttery must craft a fantasy world.
