This post at Wonk Room provides in microcosm the absurd lengths that this administration will go to in order to avoid knowing or believing information that it finds politcally or ideologically discomforting. It is for precisely this sort of behavior that I argued that this administration can be said to be determined to be wrong.
And this is why if I were only able to recommend a single book to demonstrate the core problem with this administration I would suggest The Price of Loyalty by Ron Suskind which examined how loyalty to ideology and leadership rather than free inquiry and facts ruled the White House of George W. Bush.
