Most liberals care about other people more than they care about hating other people, and hence they do not like living with a permanent political wedgie. This explains why most don't find it entertaining to have their brains pickled by talk-radio vinegar, something that inevitably filters down and knots the underpants.
Most, not all. On the circle of political opinion, the far left and the far right sit uncomfortably next to each other and both are certifiably nuts. But the reality is that the far left has been a small sliver for the past 30 years while the far right is such a large cohort that it now represents mainstream opinion in the Republican Party. Really.
There's another fun paragraph.
Oh, there was mumbling and grumbling, some crying in our beer, but most liberals aren't much interested in being in a permanent state of agitation. They weren't interested then in forming tea parties for any purpose other than sharing cupcakes. They weren't interested in wearing guns to public events, and not only because they looked odd when worn with kaftans and Birkenstocks.
On that note, you should also read Pittsburgh's Jeanne Clark on Bart Stupak. Jeanne is blogging at the Ms. Magazine website.
