    Of everything in that book, a lot of which makes a lot of sense to me, that passage is the most applicable, methinks.

    Yes, Palin does it. So do the talk radio blabberheads, my ex-wife, etc.. It’s kind of sobering to see a senior tempting demon (as Screwtape is in the book) suggesting this as a strategy to his young nephew.
