Samuel Scott has an interesting post about how strange and crazy the extreme polarization of politics in our country has become. A sample:
The merits of an issue is what matters — not which side, politician, or media outlet agrees with the issue. George W. Bush and Fox News can make a good or bad argument — and so can Barack Obama and MSNBC. The main idea is that each person should weigh the pros and cons of each issue and decide for himself based only on that criteria.
I’ll disagree with one detail, that centrists are disappearing. They are actually getting more coverage than at any time since perhaps the Ross Perot / Reform Party days.
