Some Americans, however, are less than impressed with Conservapedia's treatment of Hillary Clinton, which sensationally asserts:

Hillary Clinton may suffer from a psychological condition that would raise questions about her fitness for office. A recent book entitled The Extreme Makeover of Hillary Rodham Clinton examines the Senator's instability, incoherent speeches as both student and First Lady, casual disregard for the law, and ever-changing opinion on the Iraq war. These character flaws, analyst Bay Buchanan writes, make Hillary overly dependent on gurus and outside experts, with no internal compass to guide her, displaying all the classic symptoms of "clinical narcissism." The American Psychiatric Association describes this condition to include feelings of superiority, self-importance and "fantasies of unlimited success, fame or power." The author further states, "We are not talking about self-infatuation, we are talking about a clinical condition that could make her dangerously ill-suited to become President and Commander in Chief."

Schlafly admits the armchair psychology is "borderline in acceptability" for the site, the LA Times notes, but he "defends the Clinton article on balance as 'an objective, bias-free piece from a conservative perspective'".

Those of you who are warming to this conservative perspective are directed to the lengthy discourse on evolution, which lays its cards on the table thus:

The concept of materialistic evolution differs from the concept of Theistic Evolution in positing that God does not guide the theorized process of macroevolution. It asserts that unguided natural processes such as mutation can create new species. A majority of the most prominent and vocal defenders of the naturalistic evolutionary position since World War II have been atheists.

If said atheists need further evidence on the error of their ways, they should proceed directly to the dinosaur section, which starts promisingly by describing the beasts as "large, reptilian creatures which are now generally believed to be extinct".

The Stegosaurus, for example, was "a dinosaur with plates on its back and spines on its tail". The entry continues: "Some creationists believe the spines on its tail were to stop other dinosaurs from treading on it before the Fall."

Hmmm. Here's more:

Young Earth Creationists believe, based primarily on Biblical sources, that dinosaurs were created on day 6 of the creation week, approximately 6,000 years ago, along with other land animals, and therefore co-existed with humans. As such, they reject the Theory of Evolution and the beliefs of evolutionary scientists about the age of the earth.

To be fair, Conservapedia also notes:

The view of evolutionists and others who accept the uniformitarian timescale is that dinosaurs existed on earth from 230 million years ago to 65 million years ago. In this view, the entire population of dinosaurs were wiped out by a mass extinction event (usually thought to be an asteroid) about 65 million years ago. Of course this precludes humans and dinosaurs co-existing.
