Big Media finally asks the question

A question that has been asked thousands of times in hundreds of different ways by those of us who are not ideologues has finally found its way into an opinion piece in the Washington Post. That question is: Why are liberals so condescending?

Though I suspect that the author of the article is himself left-leaning, he demonstrates the kind of intellectual honesty that is so rare among the Left. To this point, I was aware of only one left-leaning writer -- Camile Paglia -- whom that could be said of.

Two ideological pompous douchbags in particular come away from the article looking extraordinarily bad. Those individuals would be Il Duce and Markos Moulitsas (the Daily Kos).

Do yourself a favor and read the WaPo article. Regardless of your political perspective, Left, Right, Center, or Libertarian, you'll come away with a better understanding of why Leftists are soooooooooooo condescending.

I commend the Post for printing such an extraordinary article. It's not the kind of thing one expects from that pro-Stateist rag.

One last thing - don't you on the right celebrate this article too loudly. You're still on the hook for King George the Dim!
