I’ve been reading flatland blogs lately, those that call themselves by such labels as liberal, conservative, and moderate. They seem to me the three stooges of American political life.
The liberal says, “look how smart I am. You all need to wisen up, you hear!”
Then the conservative says, “Look how stupid the liberal is.”
And then the liberal says, “I’m not stupid. You’re stupid.”
Then the conservative says, “I’m not stupid. And I can scream louder than you.”
Then the moderate says, “You’re both stupid. But if you take half of your stupidity and combine it with half the other guy’s stupidity, you get to be smart like me.”
