Here’s an excerpt from a piece on alternet by a writer named John Dolan:
“…most of the hardcore academic progressives I’ve known have tin ears. Their sheer awfulness is adaptive within the academic ghetto, in the way that a lack of any olfactory ability is adaptive for carrion eaters; but it’s disastrous when they try to talk to people outside their guild.”
This guy’s article is right on and worth a read. Kerry did botch it, most of the inellectual Left (oxymoron?) sound like the adults in a Charlie Brown cartoon and we’re too busy looking for small bits of lint on our cumberbunds to successfully block those kicks to the groin the Neocons keep serving up.
