Via Professor Reynolds, have a look at Bill Whittle's extremely interesting post about which "tribes" the American people belong to in this age of societal stress and structural fatigue. Whittle writes:
Only a few minutes ago, I had the delightful opportunity to read the comment of a fellow who said he wished that white, middle-class, racist, conservative cocksuckers like myself could have been herded into the Superdome Concentration Camp to see how much we like it. Absent, of course, was the fundamental truth of what he plainly does not have the eyes or the imagination to see, namely, that if the Superdome had been filled with white, middle-class, racist, conservative cocksuckers like myself, it would not have been a refinery of horror, but rather a citadel of hope and order and restraint and compassion.It's a great post. Check it out. But only if you aren't a dumbass.
