The American Political DynamicPosted: January 31, 2012
> Liberals don’t hate conservatives. They just think they’re stupid.
> Conservatives hate liberals, because they know that liberals think they’re smarter than them.
> Liberals know that conservatives hate them and can’t figure out why, because they don’t hate conservatives in return.
> Conservatives believe that liberals hate them, because it’s easier to feel despised than patronized. And so in addition to hating liberals, they think liberals are liars.
