Quote of the day

comment
From Matthew Yglesias: Something I think most liberals donâ??t understand is exactly how stupid many conservative leaders are. There is, yes, a condescending tendency to believe that no smart person could be on the right ideologically at all. Thatâ??s dead wrong. Plenty of bright people on the right. But the way their movement works, intelligence or understanding of politics and policy has no meaningful role in advancement. If anything, thereâ??s something of a negative correlation between knowing what youâ??re talking about and being able to get ahead in right-wing politics.
