You know I lived in West Sonoma County, Sebastopol, for a long time...
That place is the hippy hotbed of extreme Liberalism and I would get dirty looks and rolling eyes but dirty looking, jobless rich kids driving 1982 Volvos with their dreds and Marley shirts simply because I would wear button down shirts. Seriously.
After they got to know me, and realized that I could and would debate circles around them in person, I would get shouted down... literally shouted down. It was amazing. This happened with dozens of the hippiest. Many of my wifes friends didn't like me, since I simply had opposing views.
What is the most amazing part is, that they were supposed to be the open and loving people and I was supposed to be the hateful and oppressive conservative. It was, in fact, quite the opposite. Agree with them or you are an enemy. Disagree with a Conservative, at least in my experience, and they will rationally challenge you or let it go.
What is profound about such statements is the vacuum of reality it requires.
It's quite inane to blame Bush for the actions of terrorists, but denial seems to be a Liberal forte' these days.
When I see illogical and uninformed comments like this, it truly is apparent to me that our educations systems have failed us.
