American leftists are woefully ignorant of the nature, character, disposition, thoughts, feelings and inclinations of their opponents, the American right. There’s a simple reason for this, I think: they never hang around with us, at least not outside of forced togetherness, such as at work. They certainly never bother to find out whether their preconceived notions about us have any basis in reality.
I wasn’t the only one to notice it.
Véronique de Rugy, the great economist noticed it too. And she noticed that Glenn Reynolds had seen it! Reynolds felt the need to comment on it when Charles Cooke remarked on it. You can follow that intellectual chain quite a distance and still not get to the end of it.
