So many emails about here. I can’t/won’t post that many because she really does speak for herself better than we can do it for her. But here’s a good/common point:
I do not read Slate, it’s good someone does and can point to the odd,
random article worth reading.
For me the best part of Smiley’s effort is when she denounces the
Gadarene swine … er … Red State Voters (see Belmont for more
on that notion) for their Manichean worldview, while at the same time
insisting that the nation has been divided into the Land of Light and
the Domain of Darkness.
The irony of that comes pretty close to exceeding my Required Daily
Allowance of irony, frankly.
