Quote of the Day

If Middle Americans oppose gay marriage, they must
be homophobes. If they don’t like the sex jokes at
eight o’clock at night on network TV, they’re squares.
If ordinary Americans think gangsta rap is foul and
degrading, they’re racists who don’t understand
black culture. If Red State America thinks our “best”
universities are dominated by left-wing ideologues,
they’re anti-intellectual dolts. If they think feminists
have gone too far, they’re sexists.
