We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Look at it this way. From day one, the left has viewed itself as open-minded and its opponents as being close-minded. Those of us on the other side of the aisle- especially former leftists like myself- know this to be utter BS. At least someone on the left is admitting that the left's self perception of being open-minded is not supported by reality.
That's akin to a Nazi saying in retrospect, "maybe the Jews weren't that bad after all". The left is pure evil. For a foot soldier of Satan's army to write that maybe his shoe is untied is no admission of what is really going on. Kristof could have been a man, but he chose to be a leftist instead. Cede something painfully obvious as a means of furthering the lie that leftists are moral actors. They are not.
