There’s a great little conversation going on in the comments on this Megan McArdle post.*
I don’t join in until about halfway down. I hadn’t started this new blog yet, so I was still commenting as Nathan of Brainfertilizer Fame, instead of Nathan of Chiefly Musing fame.
I think I get in some good licks. You can tell when the liberals feel like they’re losing: they start adding vulgarity and <i>ad hominem</i> to their sarcastic cheap shots.
But you be the judge. Feel free to tell me what you think.
*Of course, by the nature of the discussion, the subjects (liberals and conservatives, or small-towners and urbanites, or coastal and flyover…whatever you wish to use) are broad and general. I know plenty of liberals who aren’t condescending to small-town blue collar workers, and some conservatives who are snobbish toward big city folk.
But there is some value in generalizations, as well, and I think this conversation provides some.
