What's the Matter with Liberals?

The author of "What's the Matter with Kansas?," Thomas Frank, was on The Daily Show last night.

He's pretty dumb.

He thinks he knows what your interests are, and how you should vote, and that if you disagree, you're simply wrong.

Yes really. Hey, I tried to warn you. OK, it's not like he has no points, but it all boils down to the depraved notion that he is more right about how you should vote than you are.

He doesn't like to tell you this though. He tries to hide his elitism. But he was confronted by David Frum on NewsHour, who said:

Every person is the world's leading expert on what he or she feels and believes. And I don't think you ever want to tell people that they are mistaken about how, what their beliefs are and how they express them.

Frank replied:

We don't live in a world where everyone's interests are perfectly crystal clear all the time. People get things wrong all the time. I know I do.

Oh, but he is more likely to be right about your interests than you? Like I said: he's pretty dumb. slashdot.org
