Succinct Wise Boy

So now Wise Boy a/k/a Ezra Klein adopts this single sentence from a book written by Thomas Mann and Norm Ornstein to describe our current governing crisis:

The GOP has become an insurgent outlier in American politics — it is ideolog-ically extreme; scornful of compromise; and dismissive of the legitimacy of its political opposition.

According to Klein, this sentence represents a certain purity of concept. Of course, the single sentence is blatantly false and a more truthful sentence about the governing crisis would read:

Liberals seek to place 315 million people under the thumb of the central authority for just about any activity, no matter how local; have no respect for freedom, self-government, or rule of law; and hate half the people in this country (i.e., Republican voters).
