David Limbaugh’s comment today illustrates perfectly what’s wrong with today’s left-right divide:
Lately, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews has been on a childish tear, taunting Republicans to admit their belief in the biblical account of the Creation. Someone ought to ask this paragon of smug self-satisfaction why, if he’s so brilliant, he unquestioningly echoes the demagogic hyperbole of global warming fanatics hellbent on destroying the economic system responsible for producing unprecedented prosperity in the advanced industrialized world. Oh, yes, it’s fashionable to denounce capitalism these days, but the historical record is clear.
So because Matthews is a nutty leftist, that somehow legitimizes the nutty right? What we need is reason and capitalism.
