We have "birthers" and "truthers"; now Neo-Neocon comes up with a new term, "racers". Here's how she explains it:

For the sake of convenience, I’ve decided to call people like Maureen Dowd, who see hidden racism in every complaint about Obama, “racers.”

If I could sum up the underpinnings of their position, it would be a riff on Descartes’s proof of existence: “I think, therefore I am.” For racers, it goes something like this: “I think it, therefore it is.”

Such thoughts don’t require logic or evidence—just a gut feeling, a hunch, and to racers that makes them real.
An excellent term -- I think I'm going to start using it. Thanks, Neo.
