7. Of course there fucking isn't.
This silly cartoonish tribalism DU exhibits is one of its worst features.

All right wingers are fat

All right wingers shop at Walmart and eat at Applebees

All right wingers drive SUVs

All right wingers are pasty and wear black socks with sandals and shorts in the Summer.

All right wingers live in the suburbs and stay out of urban restaurants and nightlife.


And of course these are reflexive - nobody who is any of the above can be a true progressive, all of whom bicycle for lunch to Azerbaijani delis in inner-city neighborhoods where nobody speaks English but them, then relax after work at the co-op and a four-hour Pilates session by sipping imported beers from Tibet at an urban fusion jazz nightclub where they are the only white person, then bicycle the 20 miles home (but still in the city of course - never in the suburbs!) to get some sleep before the triathlon on the weekend.

Desirable attributes are not unique or even especially prevalent in people who think like you. Undesirable (or often media-directed "undesirable") attributes are not likewise in those who do not. This applies for all given values of "you" (including the one in the mirror).
