From a website this morning, the comment:
Yes, the left (and specifically the entertainment industry left) is an isolated (and insulated) sub-culture that’s totally out of touch with the rest of the country.
Ah, that must be it. The left-leaners are isolated in their giant cities. It’s a serious problem. The insulation of smog and pollution have addled our brains and turned us away from the truth.
That must be why about half of the US population (give or take a few percentage points) espouses a more liberal, socially conscious way of thinking than the somehow-less-isolated conservatives (I’d love to see proof that they’re less isolated – didn’t we just go through the whole “The conservative candidates are screwed because they can’t win big cities” situation?). Maybe that’s why we also have a Democrat in the White House.
But then again, the left is just an out of touch sub-culture.
Ha, so what’s the dominant culture? The religious right? Hardly. There are plenty of quiet conservatives who believe that religion doesn’t have to be the battleground. There are plenty of people whose conservative beliefs are based less in religion and more in business. I don’t consider them to be a part of the fracas. They’re just waiting in the wings to reap the rewards, and I applaud them for their patience.
But honestly, if you can’t poke a little fun at yourself, how much fun can you really be?
