Liberals vs Conservatives

It turns out that Conservatives are just better people than Liberals. They are more patriotic, they care about the Constitution, they don't think it's ok to lie about Conservatives, they aren't misogynist, and they are just happier. This according to John Hawkin's latest article.
That's because, as Charles Krauthammer once said, To understand the workings of American politics, you have to understand this fundamental law: Conservatives think liberals are stupid. Liberals think conservatives are evil.

If you think your opponents are evil, you tend to be okay with using tactics that you would describe as "evil" under other circumstances to fight them. If you're up people you compare to Nazis, it’s easy to tell yourself that lying to beat them isn’t so bad. If you're in a dispute with people who you believe are just too stupid to understand what's going on, you feel compelled to try to explain yourself a little better.
Moderately amusing for Hawkins to advance this argument in the middle of an article in which he is argueing that Liberals are, more or less, evil.
The conservative view produces love of country. The other view produces a deep seated dislike of our nation.

. . . Christianity and liberalism have become largely incompatible.
Touching. Hawkins isn't a particularly deep thinker, but even this should stand out to him.

And now let's look at what his readers have to say. I should note that I have decided to go back to looking at Townhall comments after an article from two weeks ago.
If Liberals didn't have hatred to rule and control their lives, they would have nothing to live for.

. . . They are the epitome of Arrogance, Stupidity, and Hypocrisy.. so why should anyone expect anything other than that, from them.. And they are without a doubt, the most vile, repulsive, and despicable, sad and pathetic human beings in American Society, ever..!!!

. . . Conservatives believe in good personal hygiene while liberals are no lovers of soap and water.
Boy we liberals are bastards aren't we? It's almost like we deserve to be hated. But of course Conservatives don't hate us, they just think we are stupid. And apparently smelly.

While Plover's argument is stupid; that particular mistake College/Collage is one I make all the time. Spell Check doesn't pick it up.
