You like say "broad-stroking" but what are you talking about?
There ya go.
A large part of the problem, in the rhetoric of today's politics, is the broad-stroke technique used to paint an image of there being some monolithic-left, and/or monolithic-right when neither actually exists. Both major parties are comprised of individuals, both the republican and democratic parties have been bleeding out members like crazy for years, and both are political minorities compared to the number of independents out there. Today the technique is most commonly used by taking some fringe nutcase from either side, and presenting that fringe case as wholly representative of the entire left, or the entire right.
