You knew it was coming. The keepers of correct opinion just can’t understand how there can be so many wrongthinkers. There can only be one explanation – hate (and its close cousin fear).
When a force that powerful is fueled by anger rather than careful analysis, it produces results that can seem irrational. More than a third of people voting for a Republican House candidate said they were unhappy or even angry at the Republican leaders in Congress, according to exit polls, but they did so anyway, producing a House that is even more right-wing than the current one.
Get that? It couldn’t possibly be careful analysis.
