    because isn't quite right, and doesn't quite suit them, and it never occurs to them that's what the center IS, and if they want something that fits them more precisely, they have to take a stand!

      Where I am.

      because wherever I am is the center. By definition, y'see.
      I am the most rational, the most reasonable, the most serious, and the most knowledgeable about any topic, including those of which I know nothing. (By definition, those topics are unimportant anyway.)
      As I am the center of my own universe, it follows that all revolves around me, making me the center.

        to back it up, I'd wager that far more "moderates" are either of the social conservative/economic liberal variety or of the social moderate/economic moderate or some kind of libertarian rather than the kind of corporate "centrist" the Village types favor and hallucinate are common.  Sure they exist, but not in any kind of numbers to matter nor are they very compatible with the other varieties so as to form a viable coalition.  It's ridiculous.
