It’s clear enough that when leftists attack the Right (“bigoted,” “narrow,” “self-righteous,” “irrational,” “divisive,” etc.), they’re talking about themselves. Here’s an example to add to the hatemongering and calls for secession we’ve seen, even from respected Democrats and writers, as a result of W’s election. The president is supposedly a theocrat whose support is based on homophobia and bigotry, although in fact he has rather vague religious views, doesn’t attend church regularly, appoints blacks and Hispanics to as many things as possible, and favors legal recognition of homosexual unions and essentially open borders. That’s not nearly good enough, though, so if he won it must mean the election was stolen. The world would be intolerable otherwise. I don’t think any prominent Democrats have signed on to the “we wuz robbed” theory, even Donna “dogs and guns” Brazile says Bush got more votes, but educated and intelligent people do believe it. The theory has become a feature of my college class listserv, for example.
