Alaskan lefty Gryphen ponders the ideological divide:
I have been the recepient of an unusual number of visitors of late. They are coming almost exclusively from a link placed on a right wing bloggers site called Tim Blair. Now I have to say that the few comments I have recieved from these individuals have been polite and respectful. This led me to wonder what is it that really causes our ideological differences?
To be brutally honest I usually assume that there is some intellectual disparity that seperates us.
Looks like he’s right. Meanwhile, due to a surge of intellectual dissidents eager to test Homeland Security response, Mao’s Little Red Book has jumped to an Amazon ranking of 6,207—up from 12,646 the day before.
