Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Whatever lame ideas the right has, they bring the message of those ideas with much better conviction. They even have empirical points - look at these people, look at those countries, they are implementing their ideas the best, and they are performing the best. Even if their main tool appears to be well coined rhetorics and mass psychology, their do insert logical arguments which make people make conclusions, perhaps not fully conciously but possibly very effectively. The right can be content with frustrating us with their inconsistent logic, but forcing people to think as they intend much better than us earnestly setting and following academic rules of debating.

Consider for example Krugman's interview at Foxnews. Did he really change many minds?
