So McCain's angry, religion-hugging gun-lovers have been getting out of the house lately to express their avid disapproval of the Democratic
Problem is that you can't blame him for the stupid things they're saying. Well, duh, no #, Sherlock. You'd think. Unlike the Germans, whose Leader
could be blamed for what the populous thought, said and did, McCain can't have this one pinned to him.
It says so right here.
Social psychologists have conducted scores of these "group polarization" experiments since the '60s, and they all come to the same finding:
Like-minded people in a group grow more extreme in the way they are like-minded.
Homogeneity creates extremity—or, in the news of the day, a McCain rally.
and further, in the interests of bipartisan finger-pointing, generalising and labelling,
Liberals from Boulder asked to discuss some issues of the day, such as global warming and gay marriage, are more liberal at the end of their
discussion than before.
So, the MSM is simply being lazy (and, if you happen to be a "Red stater", biased) in pointing THEIR fingers at McCain and Palin and blaming them
for the rally attendees practical demonstration of social-psychological theory.
To digress, does anybody else look at the loser in the photo holding up the anti-Obama sign and have the gut-reaction "And just what the # have you
ever done for the military, you fat #?"? I realise I know nothing about the guy, but the fact is that he couldn't pass physical this side of
Christmas, so what credibility does his unsupported allegation of a lack of patriotism on Obama's part have, exactly?
I love it when (usually conservatives) who've never served a day in uniform in their lives start lecturing others on patriotism, duty and military
credentials. It's like the National Front crowd, unemployed to a man, put up "immigrants want your job" signs.
However, he's clearly been doing his bit to keep the stocks of KFC, Burger King, Mcdonald's and Pizza Hut healthy...
