Making a Liberal Look Like an Idiot

I love this:

Isn't there some association to a serious medical condition when you can see the whites of someone's eyes above their pupils? One which leads to pathalogical [sic] conditions such as paranoia and dementia? I forget what it's called. But from that photo Liasson clearly has a serious case and needs medical attention soon. And no one should believe a word she says.
--A comment on the "Think Progress" weblog


National Public Radio's Mara Liasson

The commenter was referring to the accompanying screen capture of Mara Liasson as she participated in a panel discussion on FOX News.

Now the issue here really isn't Mara Liasson, nor FOX News, nor the story which precipitated the discussion which precipitated the comment (told best by NPR's ombudsman, Jeffrey A. Dvorkin). The issue is what this guy said and what it says about his own level of understanding about the world. One wonders if it was a right-winger portraying a mentally deficient liberal in order to help to build the impression that the term "mentally deficient liberal" is an oxymoron. Unlikely, I think. I suspect that it probably was an actual liberal. But the other liberals must be wondering, "With friends like these...."

It brings to mind a comment that I received just today (3rd comment down) on an entry which I posted 20 full months ago about President Bush, but I'll leave it to you to work out how they're related.

Anyone who thinks liberal vs conservative has blinders on. Neither conservatives nor liberals have answers to every problem to face our nation.

The "middle ground," which is where the majority of our nation's voters exist, is a mix of conservative and libreal ideas.

To view the world in a polarized way (liberal vs conservative) is a character flaw. And that's how your post makes *you* look like an idiot.
