New Definition of Paranoia

Further to the post on a Burkean response to the Town Hall anger, here is a quote from Jonah Goldberg that is a good example of what I meant by Burke's concept of "prejudice."

"Under the plan discussed at President Obama’s infomercial-esqe town halls, America would cut costs and expand coverage while avoiding rationing. Apparently, it’s paranoid to think that’s too good to be true."
- Jonah Goldberg
Yeah, what else could it be?
