Something about conservatives

Here's an observation from a posting by Avedon on Eschaton:

What always gets me about conservative policies is the way they make all the problems they purport to solve worse, thus generating the "need" to do more of the same. For example, being "tough on crime" actually creates more tough criminals, so then you "need" to have more severe (and more expensive) policies and more prisons and get even tougher.

How is it they keep getting away with it?

I guess because an awful lot of people out there who just aren't too bright.
