You missed his disclaimer at the beginning:


"It may seem like I’m picking more on liberal sacred cows than conservative ones. There are three reasons for this:


"First, this story turns on good intentions. There’s not much to say about those who don’t even pretend to have them.


"Second, everyone already knows right-wing numbers don’t add up. What am I gonna do, waste ink proving that, yes, the Holocaust really did happen?


"Finally, even if I did try to make these points, most Republicans wouldn’t understand them unless I wrote really, really, slow."


In other words, *The Consensus* must be affirmed even when its pet myths are being debunked.

Silly me...I thought number 3 was bikes instead of electric cars (though there are plenty of both in Portland).
