The American Political Dynamic

> 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.
From The Myth of the American Political Intelligence Gap.
