If only everybody were White, Male, Straight, and, preferably, Upper Middle Class

Or at least that is the theory of a new book about how awful we liberals are, excepted at Townhall today. The book is called "How The Left Was Won: An In-Depth Analysis of the Tools and Methodologies Used by Liberals to Undermine Society and Disrupt the Social Order" and it's by Richard Mgrdechian, who chose to sneer in his photo at Townhall. Always a good choice. Here's the section.
Liberals should thank God every day for differences between people because without them, liberalism would be dead in the water. Without them, the country might have some stability. Without them, it might have a chance to survive. Without them, the problems between those who want and those who have might actually be manageable in some meaningful or productive way.
Ok, first of all poindexter, if everybody looked the same, we'd get tired of looking at each other. But also if everybody looked the same the problems between those who want and those who have wouldn't exist, remember?

While we are at it, those who want? How about those who need? I know it's fashionable for you Conservatoids to pretend that the poor are basically fine, but greedy, but come on.

Also I'm not sure the fact that there are differences are what is keeping this country from surviving. I'm pretty damn sure that Liberals aren't the only ones out there exploiting differences. Conservatives do it almost as much, just from the other side of the fence. Literally, in some cases.
