    It's called the Dunning-Kruger Effect

    Conservatives think that they're smart and well-informed... lol

    Facts seem to disagree with them most of the time though

    In general I think they have a better grasp of both. Generally, Conservatives become Conservatives because they choose to start thinking about the issues instead of just reacting too them.

    You mean when conservatives tell you that The Constitution says they have an inalienable right to bear arms a liberal would, instinctively, know that to be untrue?

    They don't pretend they're experts they pretend they wrote it.

    Because they tend to want to interpret the Constitution according to their beliefs.  And differently depending on what party holds the White House.  Just for instance, if Obama had wanted to steer the G7 Convention to a hotel complex he just happens to own, the Republicans would have gone ballistic!  We would never have stopped hearing about it!  But when Trump does it, they say 'Emolument clause?  WHAT emolument clause?'

    If the Constitution says whatever you say it says, then you are indeed an expert!  You can say exactly what it says!

    They want to feel good, and by doing that they want to feel like they actually achieved something for once in their lifetime.

    They have the math skills of a 5 year old. The logic used in law would be like alien language to them.

      Got a transcript of it, white trash? I can make all kinds of claims too. You must be one of those inbred white trash where the genetic mutation hasn't ****** up your brain as extensively as it usually does the other white trash. (if you can provide a transcript, of course)

    I don't claim to be an expert but I am well informed.
