108. We hate them because we think we're better, smater, and know the truth
and that they don't, and we don't mind making incredibly broad generalizations about them in order to feel better about ourselves.

Our enemy is not the people who live in Red States. It's the ideas and the politicians which drive people who live in Red States to vote against their best interests.

We should hate ourselves for insisting on hammering away at the R v B wedge which people like Rush hold in place, begging us to swing at.

We're defeating ourselves by calling everyone who lives in a Red State a Dumbfuckistani.

We're the Dumbfucks if we do that.

We got to figure out who the REAL enemy is, or we're just going to be cogs in the right wing spin machine, just like the people who live in Red States.
