How Liberals and Conservatives see things differently
As many of you know, I was on BookTV this past Sunday. Below is a link from World Net Daily whose book division, WND Books, published my book, telling of meteoric book sales following my appearance. At the time of their writing the book ranked over 400 on BarnesandNoble.com, but actually reached 267.
What was interesting to me was the number of emails from Franken supporters who described me as angry, a fascist,hatemonger,... I watched my appearance twice and just couldn't see, as hard as I tried, to see the angry hatemonger that these people saw.
Others who emailed me didn't bother refuting my points against Al Franken, rather that I'm just another publicity seeking right-winger.
What I draw from this is just how polarized we are as a country and how so many people can be so consumed with anger that they can't argue or advance their own opinions or arguements without lacing it with vulagrity and nasty name calling.
No wonder Al Franken has such a strong following. He's pandering to the angry and bitter folks in this country who prefer verbal assaults than intellectual debate.
