"Progressives are not fond of 'talking points': We like to think in sentences, paragraphs, and even articles and books if it takes that long to fully flesh out an idea. Our ideas, so the story goes, are more 'nuanced' than our opponents', and to some extent, that is true. Our Neanderthal cousins (I mean in evolution, not in the Senate, although they are there, too) might have expressed many of their basic thoughts with grunts and single-word utterances: Food? Good. Snake? Bad. The same is true of contemporary conservative intellectual cave dwellers, or at least of their leaders in Congress." (02/16/11)
