as the scales fall away from their eyes... well, maybe.

TOTWTYTR has a post up about Useful Idiots. I agree wholeheartedly. After all, there is no more bitter, hardened cynic in the world than the person who started out as a dewy-eyed naif, a dyed-in-the-wool believer. (OOPS, meant to put THIS link on this post, but I'll leave the other up, because it's a doozie, too.)

Unfortunately as one useful idiot becomes disillusioned and gets a painful clue, there's always another useful idiot to pick up the slack.

We never seem to run out of idiots.

Thanks for the link Phlegmy. Those true believers fall hard, when inevitably, they fall.
