Dr. M. does not detect any "blind vitriol" in his post. He's read and re-read, but nope, it's not there.


You've got an interesting thing going on. Very witty and insightful. However, certainly not devoid of the type of fallacious thinking you attempt to denounce.

Your barb about Republicans in this little piece is highly ironic. People who identify as members of the GOP are more likely to have gone to college than their Democratic counterparts, at last according to the last political science course I took.

(Sure enough, a brief search backs this up. Please see: Fried, Joseph, Democrats and Republicans — Rhetoric and Reality (New York: Algora Publishing, 2008), 74–5.)

Your insinuation (that Republicans are uneducated and lack basic critical thinking skills)is based more on the anecdotal than on the empirical. You commit the same crime you spent the entire post decrying. Poetic justice, if there ever were such a thing.

A great blog overall, but try to write your next blog with "respect for logic and fact"...and preferably less blind vitriol directed at people with different political inclinations than you.
