See, here's the difference. I just think they're wrong. My friends, co-workers, and family members who voted for Obama aren't dumb, or ignorant, or bad people. I have friendly debates with them, because I think they're wrong. I'm seeing them for Thanksgiving, I'm sure we'll get into politics a bit. In the words of Reagan... the trouble with my liberal friends is not that they are ignorant, but that they know so much that isn’t so.
This whole demonizing the other side thing... or ascribing weird motivations... just doesn't seem very healthy. It actually seems very DU-like.
