My favorite quote of the year! From Fred Siegel‘s Wall Street Journal review of James Piereson’s “Camelot and the Cultural Revolution,” (a book which connects the spiral into lunacy of the modern left with its failure to come to terms with Lee Harvey Oswald – a leftist himself – as JFK’s killer):
It’s not reason that is at the heart of modern-day liberalism but rather the claim to superior virtue and, even more important, to a special knowledge unavailable to the unwashed or unenlightened.
Truer truth ‘aint never been spoke! If you’ve ever wondered why arguing with a liberal is such a fruitless endeavor, this sums it up – your adversary thinks he’s a better person than you, and better informed.
Dennis Prager usually says it this way: conservatives believe that liberals are simply wrong; liberals believe that conservatives are evil and stupid.
