    All of American politics has come down to the nerds vs. the jocks.

    The people who think and question vs. the people who "know" they are right and will tolerate no one questioning it, lest they be forced to think.

    Someone else asked on the site tonight "Are Americans really this stupid?" to which I replied "Yes."

    •  Did you not read all the comments about Us & Them? (0+ / 0-)

      Why would a liberal want to create a new rule for who Us-and-Them are?  Isn't drawing that division the entirety of the strategy of Right Wing media?

        ... while the Them -- and denying that a Them exists is just denying reality -- keeps destroying our economy and eroding our rights?

        It's possible to pick off individuals of "Them" here and there, win hearts and minds, appeal to people who have genuine compassion, or whose lives have sadly gone to hell and can be shown that there's a direct correlation between voting GOP and destroying their lives, but overall, this is war.  Make no mistake, they think it's war, and when someone considers me their enemy I'm not inclined to disagree.
