Mainstreaming teh Crazy

In an attempt to give both sides equal time, Brian Resnick today looks into the question of fluoride in water supplies. As he admits, it's the Tea Partiers who are bringing up this pollution of our precious bodily fluids, which might supply a clue to his question
But why is politicized opposition to fluoride happening now?
Or one may consult General Jack D. Ripper in the video clip above from "Dr. Strangelove" (1964)

It's really not that hard. The year of "Dr. Strangelove" was the year of Barry Goldwater. The fifties had been full of the commie-fluoridation connection. It's harder to make that connection since the fall of the Soviet Union, but that really doesn't matter if you're dissociated enough from reality.
