After reading the website Media Matters, which takes the mainstream media to task, I can come to only one conclusion: brain parasites. Yes, brain parasites have completely taken over pundits like Bill Kristol, Mike Savage, and Neal Boortz. Nothing else comes close to explaining the the insanely hateful things they utter. I suppose it’s possible they are actually living in some sort of alternate reality that manifests in ours. But I doubt it.
Toxoplasma gondii is a parasite that can alter animal behavior in such a way that is detrimental to the animal but not the parasite. This is most often seen in rats and cats. Rats allow themselves to be eaten by cats and this allows the life cycle of the parasite to continue. I think what we have here is a variant which I have dubbed Toxoplasma neoconi. It’s primary symptom it makes you an inflexible asshole whose decisions are incredibly destructive for those around them.
